It’s Inexpensive, Slippery, and There Are No Edges for the Quilt to Get Caught on!

Do you struggle with moving a quilt smoothly through your machine while free motion quilting? This solution from Laura at Sew Very Easy is inexpensive, easy to do and creates a wonderful surface for quilting.

A snow carpet, or roll-up plastic sled, can easily be used to cover your machine and table. Its slick surface causes the quilt to move easily over it. Plus, you can tape it down to your table and eliminate edges that your quilt might get caught on.

Laura shows you exactly how to do that in the following video.

This also works well if you can’t lower the feed dogs on your machine. Plus, when not in use, you can roll it up and put it away. It will unroll flat the next time you want to use it.

You can purchase a classic roll-up sled here.


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!
