    Sandwiching is always a chore. I have experimented with the floor, design wall, bed. I think I may have a handy and inexpensive help mate here.

    Picture two is a close up of pipe insulation, not spendy at all and readily available. I'm showing the line that you would break open to place around an exposed pipe. This a great guide for lining up the top/batting or backing. Picture one is the garden stake that I insert to stabilize. You can add more length by simply taping more on and adding another stake. For storage I remove the stakes and roll up the insulation. Picture 3 is the part I like I can pin to this service, great stability, it also shows the water soluble mark for the center. I find and mark the center of batting, both sides and do the same for the top and back. Picture 4 is how I apply the glue in a wave line rather than straight across, but you could bead or spray baste. I prefer the glue as I always over do it with the spray and it gums up the needle. The last picture is rolling it out lining up my marks.

    That is very ingenuous - thanks for sharing. It's amazing at some of the things y'all come up with, then we have to smack our foreheads in an I could have had a V-8 moment

    I think I might understand it more if could zoom out a little for the total effect.

    Great idea. I have a ping pong table and use 1" x 4" MDF lumber that my husband cut to various lengths (4,5,6,7 & 8 ft) I do a similar thing but use painters tape to adhere the fabric to the lumber. Whatever works is my motto.

    Thank you for posting. We're all looking for an easier way to sandwich our quilts. This looks like a great option!!!

    What a great idea. I use the boards, but a "round" item would work better. I wonder if pool noodles would work also?

    I don't get it either, but did think of a pool noodle when I saw first pic.
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?
