Default Quilling and Nail Trimming, please help!!

I know there are a few threads with this issue, but I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. So I got my hedgie about a week ago and I noticed that his nails are getting pretty long already. We're pretty used to each other already, so I can hold him no problem. The issue is: he's quilling.. I couldn't get him to sit still or calm down enough in the bath to be able to clip his toenails, so I tried to hold him against my chest like some other people have suggested but he's quilling and he seems really uncomfortable when I hold him like that because of the pain.

Does anyone have any suggestions on clipping nails while they're quilling? I could really use some help. I don't want him to be in pain!

If your cage has a top with bars you can try putting him on the top of the cage so his legs are through the bars, hanging in the cage. You should be able to clip his nails that way.
