Tracey’s Custom Quilting Table

Tracey send me pics of her new quilting table, along with her story and a pic of her quilt 🙂 Quilters, I can’t tell you how much a difference it makes to have a flat surface to sew and quilt on, especially for machine quilting. Be sure to check out my page on COMFORT for more info. Meanwhile, enjoy Tracey’s pics!




I am new at quilting..about 3 years now. I have tried to machine quilt a little with a brother I bought from Costco and the little pfaff passport 2.0. With this new flat surface and 10″ throat sewing machine I am hoping it won’t be such a tug of war!

Enclosed will be my first quilt project on my new machine. I hope to start quilting this weekend because I have the back finished. I will let u know how it goes. So far I have tried westerlee rulers and the flat surface for ruler work made it much easier to learn!

Thank you for all your great ideas and for sharing your knowledge and connecting with us and helping us succeed as quilters!

Best to you!
Tracey Towner

    So glad I came across this great idea. I think I’ll give it a try and was wondering what keeps the foam boards and/or the vinyl from sliding around as you are moving the quilt thru the machine? Thanks

      Hi Tracy,

      I love my tables and have been using this set-up for 10 years. When you buy the thickest vinyl to cover the table, on the corners it overhangs and creates a fold that holds everything together. Also, taping the opening for the feed dogs helps secure the vinyl. I’ve quilted very large quilts and have no problem with movement.
