Quilt With Us


It's for machine quilting with your domestic machine - does anyone own one?  If you do/did, what do/did you like/dislike about it?  I'm looking at the original that will enable me to quilt while sitting down.  I'm just tired of wrestling with the quilts to quilt them on my domestic sitting on the old kitchen table.  I saw one at a quilt show this weekend and I liked what I saw & the price was definitely right, but it looks almost too good to be true.  What do you think?

GO BLUE is right!!! That looks like a good setup...am anxious to see if anyone replies. I've done a few queens, but only using a meandering pattern. Glad to hear you're busy...new puppies are a hand full!

Yeah, PQ, I'm here and hover on occassion... it's been a busy year and it doesn't look like it's going to slow down  until after the holidays.  I still have three quilts to finish (one isn't even started yet) for Christmas gifts, plus ornaments for all the gkids & ggkids... and still working on quilts for our local VA hospital and the local battered women/homeless shelter.  AND we have a 'new' (3 1/2 months old) puppy which is taking a lot of our attention.

p.s.  you got the Mich St correct... but it's UofM not MU  :)    Go Green!!  :)

Linda... I won't even try a queen size unless I separate into two pieces, quilt it, then join them.  A small twin size is about the limit of my patience/ability.  If I get this frame, I might get a machine with  a longer throat space later on; just don't want to go to the extra expense until I know for sure that the frame will work for me.

The throat bed is what you have to work with, so you will be turning the rods a lot. For having only 16" throat on my HQ16 I turn the rods a lot and any block that is large or set on points has to be worked a part at a time. I am sure it will be better than doing a quilt on the home machine, for I too had enough of trying to do queen size on the home machine.

Sunshine!  Great hearing from you!  Hadn't heard anything from you for awhile and was hoping everything was okay.  Haven't heard any rivalry chatter between you and Pam about Mich St and MU (do I have my schools right?).  (Of course, I bleed Husker Red.)  :D  I can't help you with the Hinterberg question, but sure am glad to see you are still kickin' & quiltin'.
