Least favorite quilting job - drag in the big table from the garage and clean it up, find clamps that fit the table, bring in a rolling chair, lots of work but over time, I've gotten it down to one or two hours, depending on ??? This time I used both spray and pins. Somehow, that table gets heavier over the years. ?? My latest efforts to hold layers flat and pleatless was finding very inexpensive clamps found at the Dollar Store, 6 for a dollar. They've been most effective of everything I've tried at holding the fabric to the thick-edged table.
Here's the quilting pattern on the back - kinda big and loopy. I don't usually do any heavy quilting.
Front - big job ahead. Having issues with skipped stitches, increased pressure, and am using frequently-applied Sewer's Aide, and a Schmetz Chrome 14 needle that I've tried previously, with success.
