    I'll go ahead and check it out this weekend. My hubby is not table saw-equipped ( or inclined)*grin* so I always have to factor that into any equation when talking about cutting things.

    Your tutorial is excellent. Thank you for the answers and can't wait to see your lovely quilt completed.

    Aswendyg, thanks so much, you have opened up a whole new way to baste for me, I even feel excited about it, I have a friend who can help me with the wood part. Your method is so valuable to all those who cannot get down on the floor anymore to baste, if I can sit down to baste most of it I shall be laughing, at this stage I am thinking of using the big tables at our church hall, thank you again.

    Update:

    I went to Lowe's this weekend and got two 8 ft boards for about $20. Then went to Joann's a bought three yards of flannel for about $11 ( used coupon). I used your tutorial to complete basting on my quilt top and it worked wonderfully. I did use pins though. Wow! Such a huge difference! Thanks again for sharing this method that makes this task less odious.

    Had to add my thanks. Basting is the most difficult part of quilting foe me. I cannot wait to try this! Thank you, again, and your quilt is beautiful!

    Thanks so much for sharing. You did a great job with the pictures and the instructions. These brought to life what I saw in the SS youtube tutorial. My Dh is ready to get the boards for me. I'll need another table, too. :)

    I use the board method also but I use my pins, I can take them out as I quilt.

    I have used the Sharon method on small quilts. Your tute and pics are much better than hers IMO. Thanks!
