    Hey ladies there is a thread here on the quilting board that a members husband made her one my husband made one for me and it cost $12 to make here is the link to make it I guess you can do at least a full quilt on one We just made mine and I only do walls and baby quilts so it works for me I have found you need a table that your sewing machine sets down into.

    DH made me something very similar out of wood. It works the same way as this one. Before I got my mid-arm and frame, I quilted a lap-sized quilt on the the frame he made. It worked okay, but the PVC rollers were a little awkward to maneuver, and since the frame moves instead of the machine, it took the whole length of my 9' sewing room to quilt that small quilt. I personally wouldn't want to try to quilt anything larger on it.

    But for as little as it cost to make ($15 or $20), it was worth it. :D

    So those of you who have one would you recommend this and did you enjoy it?

    I just recently advertised for a used one since I wanted to try it. I had very good response and did get one.[Used but like almost new] I have done some practicing with it but see that it is going to take a lot of practice to get used to it. Right now it seems awkward to handle but that may change with more use. I would suggest you put an ad for "wanted Flynn Frame" on here and on SEW Its For Sale. You just may save yourself some money and not be out so much if you don't like it.

    I too had been wondering about these frames since seeing it in Paducah - thanks for all the responses and ideas.

    I was seriously considering one too. But my machine had a small throat so didn't end up getting one. But I think it sounds cool. No pinning or basting problems.
