Snow Carpet Quilting Hack

If you live where it snows, you’ve probably used a snow carpet before. It’s basically a thin, flexible piece of plastic that works similarly to a sled.

Just set the snow carpet on the top of a hill, sit or lay on it, and push off, and you’ll go top speed across the snow. How fun!


Surprisingly, there’s actually another use for snow carpets I never knew until now. You can use it for quilting!

That’s right, a snow carpet’s slippery surface is great for moving a quilt as you stitch! Generally speaking, you can get one of these for $5 or less, so they’re super cheap.

They also come in a variety of sizes and colors, so you can easily find the perfect one for you!

You need to cut a small hole in this in order to use it for quilting, so keep this in mind in case you actually wanted to sled with it.

Then just clamp it in place with the hole where your needle is, and the rest is easy. Quilt as usual, and the fabric will slide so much easier as you’re stitching!

What unorthodox tricks do you use while quilting? Have you used a snow carpet before?
