Love making quilts but often find you are short on space to properly lay out all the pieces? Try this shortcut for rolling out fabric to make a quilt sandwich in a small space. Use dollar store pool noodles to keep everything in place for simplifying your pinning. The fabric rolls around the pool noodle with ease because the material a noodle is made of has some structure but with give. I had previously tried dowels and even cardboard but like this solution best, plus it is inexpensive. Definitely nice to have this option, since before trying this, I found myself having to bend over on the floor since that was the only place I had enough space to properly sandwich material. With this DIY idea, I can use the table instead, which is much easier on the back and knees.
Now, if I can just keep the grandkids away since they love playing with the multicolored toys I brought into my house. For a nifty quilting hack, I highly recommend trying this idea. Would love to know what you think when you do, please let me know how the quilt sandwich trick works for you.
