    saves the knees. I did everything on the floor prior to seeing this. Oh, and you can store the quilt sandwiches until you are ready to quilt them.

    Great idea. I also like Schamber's video and tried it on my last baby quilt. I was able to do it on the table as the quilt was small. It was great to baste this way and I ended up doing the machine quilting myself too. I love Schamber's binding video. I, too, am learning so much from her. Let us see how your quilt looks after quilting!

    I loved this video! I had my sweet husband make me 2 rails from 8ft stock, luckily I have an 8ft table in my sewing room. If you haven't tried it with water soluble thread, you should; it's more slippery than tatting thread, but it washes out & tatting doesn't. one less step.
