No More Crawling Around on the Floor to Layer Large Quilts!

If you’ve ever had to layer up a quilt on the floor, you’ll really appreciate this ingenious method devised by Amelie Scott.





She walks you through the steps for layering a large quilt on a small table. While the table she’s using in the demo is quite large, it’s not as large as the quilt. And, as she points out, even a small table will work well with her method.

All you need is the table, some wooden skewers (or unsharpened pencils), large binder clips and tape. If your table is too thick for the binder clips, consider small 4″ wood clamps from the hardware store. Also, to prevent scratching the table’s surface while pinning, put a large cutting mat on top of the table before you begin.

Watch the video below to see how to sandwich the backing, batting and quilt top with ease, regardless of how large your table is.
