Sewing Table Retrofit
Before I begin quilting all of the quilts for Mark's family, I just had to finish up the curved piecing sample I started in class in Wichita. I loved the fabrics and colors and couldn't tear myself away from them.
And it doesn't take long.
Some detail shots.....
But now it is time to get those quilts for Mark's family completed. I knew that I needed the best possible surface for quilting these, but I don't have a recessed sewing machine table. What to do?
I found my answer on Squidoo. My humble and heartfelt thanks go out to Alaskan quilter Marguerita McManus, who has some YouTubes up about how to make a foam core sewing table. This is such a brilliant solution!!!!
With the foam core and heavy vinyl sheet over it, I have a large flat slippery surface flush with my needle on the old Juki.
