I am also a new user of an Inspira Frame. It had been sitting in my sewing room for a few years and I finally (with hubby's help) got it going. Everything is great and I'm very pleased with it but it baulks when going over the join in the frame and consequently throws the stitching out.
I have just gotten one of Ken Lund frames. It is awesome for the cost!! I know you said that you didn't want to go to Home Depot. It is well worth the trip!! The pipes that you need to get they will cut them for you. They are very inexpensive I think a whole 10'bucks. I got 80 inch pipe 4 of them for my frame, they will cut any size. I also got the track material but only put it on one side for the wheels so they would roll straight. Am doing a queen size t-shirt quilt right now and the poles roll every easy to pull up the quilt.
i think if you are looking for something on a budget you can't go wrong. Ken is very responsive to any questions that you have great to work with. 5 stars. Good luck!!
I thought about the PVC one but I don't know how large you can go and I like controlling the sewing machine than controlling the frame.
very pretty quilt
thanks for the link
saw a couple on e bay for $20.00
That is a very pretty quilt
I'm not sure how much you want to spend, but Brother embroidery machine the PE-770 just came out with a new model that not only embroiders but also is a sewing machine for about $1300. I think it's great for it's price. There is an online dealer Mr & Mrs Sew & Vac sold on Amazon. Check it out. I bought the PE-770 because it was only $625 and I already had two sewing machines. A 25 year old Pfaff 7570 and a new Brother HE1000. Love them both.
Spend time on accurate cutting and making your 1/4" seams accurate too. Don't hurry it. Always fix the error as soon as you notice the pieces are not exact or the problem will compound and cause the whole quilt to be a big problem. Hope these tips might help. You are on the right road - now, just make each piece precise! Good Luck and never give up!
Beautiful and a lot of work ! Congratulations !
Thank you for letting me join.....when making squares, must one wash fabrics first? Thank you
Your quilt top is lovely. Congrats. Pressing (ironing) is the worse part. You have mastered that. I have to travel out of state to visit mine. Daughter got most of them when they moved back from Sunny Warm California. Visited 3 over the weekend.
Thank you ddtrina for the information, however, I have been to the website you advised but there is no pattern. This lady just makes the quilts and sells them. I have searched high and low and just can't find the pattern. I think it must be patented. (ha). I appreciate any help anyone can give me though.
