    How to layer a quilt on a small table

    This link was on Kaye Woods site today and I found it very interesting and funny. The captions her daughter puts up as the quilting instructions go on are very clever and be sure to stay to see the credits at the end.

    That was funny.....Thanks! But did you notice that she put the backing fabric seam in the center of the back of the quilt? That's something I would do, in fact I do it more often than not, but not intentionally, it just happens that way.

    If you don't want seam in middle....just seam both selvedges making a tube, align theses seams and cut only ONE of the creases created....will give you a back with full width in center and half widths on ends...I know this is an old method, but maybe some didn't know it......

    OMG!! Thank you so much for this link- My knees almost stopped me from finishing my latest quilt, because I had it laid out on the basement floor where I can tape it down and proceed from there. I made a vow on this last quilt only to make mini quilts, baby quilts and wallhangings that I can sandwich on my table. This idea may keep me in the "full size quilt business" a little longer. Can't wait to try it on some of my UFOs that are ready to sandwich and have been procrastinated on!
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    Really cute and good info. If you want even more laughs, turn on the closed captioning.

    Joy, I recommend you baste your next quilt using Sharon Schambers method of sitting down at a table....its the best way to hand baste a quilt..EVER...I sold all my safety pins and my basting gun at the garage sale, once I tried it this way.....
    There are part 1 and part 2. She demos on a small piece on the video, but I have done using longer pieces of wood on a regular banquet table and did a queen size quilt with no problems! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhwNylePFAA

    Thanks for the tute! This is how I pin-baste my quilts but always struggled with the center marking on my table, now I know the skewer method thanks to you and the video lady. I don't do my backing that way, it's always prepared before laying it down. I love Geri's tip on making a tube of the backing so the seam isn't centered, thanks for that Geri!

    It's a good thing that I just came from the bathroom or...well, you know. I laughed so hard at the closed captioning but most especially at the credits. Thanks for the laugh...the info was also interesting.

    I have this Bookmarked. I wouldn't do it differently at all. I did not know she was Kaye Wood's daughter.
