    I'm presently doing this with a larger quilt. First time for me. I'm finding this easier to do than pinning and being on the floor. And I hate to do any hand stitching. I like the idea of covering the boards with flannel. Thanks!

    Just what I've been looking for! Aren't you the smart one?!!! Thanks so much for sharing your quilt basting method tutorial. I've already sent out for the boards and hope to practice this weekend. Can't wait to see your quilt when it's finished!
    Hugs!

    I'm going to Lowe's for boards as soon as the snow melts. Thanks for sharing and the precise instructions.

    I am sitting here, just thrilled, because I hate sandwiching SO MUCH! Crawling around on the floor makes my knees hurt, my back hurt, and my hamstrings cramp. Have you ever had a hamstring cramp? Trust me-it hurts.
    I already have two of the same tables from Sam's-adjustable! I already have flannel! All I need is wood from Lowe's which is 5 minutes away!
    And right now I'm working on a queen sized quilt that I was REALLY dreading finishing cause then I'd have to sandwich it. Now I don't have to dread that part anymore!
    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

    I used my warm and natural scraps to cover the boards and it worked fine.

    Today was the first time of using this method and I have to say I am actually looking forward to basting the next one! So much easier than using the floor. Thanks for posting this tutorial!

    Thank you for your great tutorial. Also thank you for giving us the info on Sharon Schamber's tute. I'm going to have to make a trip to Sams, Lowe's and Hancock's to get set up. Any more I can't get down on the floor to sandwich a quilt (have problems getting up). You're a life-saver and I appreciate the time and pictures to give us this very useful tutorial. I love your quilt, too. You'll have to give us pics when you're finished.

    I'm THRILLED that so many of you are finding this info helpful! I know I hated trying to sandwich a quilt on the floor and this method really makes basting an enjoyable part of the process. :)

    I've had this quilt done for awhile now (using it every evening on the sofa) and need to get it outside during the daytime so I can take some pictures of it to post...maybe this weekend.

    This is a great tute. Very helpful. Now, since I am new at quilting my own quilt, once you get the quilt basted, you take it off the boards, right? and how do you handle it to quilt it on your machine? Also, you quilt from the middle out to the edges, don't you? Thanks!
