My dinner room table makes for a wonderful workbench for this project. I extend the table to hold the two long pieces of wood that the quilt top and bottom gets wrapped around; the Sharon Schamber method. I find that I can sit for a couple of hours basting while watching tv. For a large quilt, like the one I'm working on now, the fabric is laid out on my kitchen floor where I roll the fabrics onto the boards. Once the fabrics are on the boards, I then move the project over to the dinning room table to do the basting. I prefer this method over pinning or spray basting. It does take a bit more time to do this than the spray basting, but I like the result much better. Plus, it is healthier for me than inhaling all the chemicals.
