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 or large beach towel clamps. 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.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
