And then... I set the improv sawtooth top aside to mull over the quilting design. In the meanwhile, I started my current kaleidoscope. That meant pin basting four tops. Two are log cabins from my last leader/ender project.

The quilts are laid on 24"x48" folding tables. These are my basting tables; I can't pin on the floor anymore. I clip the back to the tables with Sears spring clamps then drape the batting and top over that. I can pin about 20" before the quilt needs to be moved. When it's moved I clamp through all three layers on one side but only clamp the bottom on the other. The batting and top drape over the clamps on that side. (See the near side in the photo below.)
