I do not have a table large enough to hold quilt for basting.
I have pin basted when hand quilting. I just remove the pins as I move the hoop. Another option you may wish to consider is to have a Longarm quilter baste it for you. They usually charge a very minimal fee for basting a quilt and it will definitely be easier on you then getting on your hands and knees on the floor.
