    Does anyone here use a quilt stretcher to stretch their quilts?

    I have been reading about how several people stretch their quilts by taping them to the floor etc. I have never done that because here we use a quilt stretching frame and it takes at least 4 of us to do it. Do you use these too?

    Are you hand quilting? I have used the long pieces of wood to put my quilt on for hand quilting and then stretch the quilt taut and put on C clamps. Is this what you mean OR are you talking about blocking the finished quilt to square it up for a show competition?

    I mean putting the quilt sandwich together, tacking through the layers and then either hand or machine quilting .
