Quilt Sandwich

I have basted my quilt top using safety pins to my  batting and backing, creating the sandwich of fabrics and it is now ready for quilting. 

Since I did not have a table big enough to hold my quilt I laid it out on the basement floor which has a layer of exercise rubber matting.  I also placed plastic drop cloth painters used over the floor to prevent getting my fabric dirty.

The basement floor was perfect, because I was able to lay out my backing fabric on the plastic, I skipped taping with masking tape, because of the rubber matting on the floor, I was able to pin the backing fabric directly to the rubber matting and kept it taut using straight pins.  Once I had pinned my batting and quilt top to the back fabric with safety pins, I was able to remove the plastic quite easily if it was caught by the pins.
