    How many of you hand quilters use an Aunt Becky?
    I bought one several years ago and every so often I get it out and really try hard to use it, but so far haven't been able to get the hang of it. I am DETERMINED to master it! Any helpful tips would really be appreciated. I know your quilt has to be loose in the hoop and I have watched several tutorials but haven't gotten the hang of it yet.

    I've got an Aunt Becky and have really, I have to admit, never really took the time to master it. I have found that I would rather quilt without a hoop and one of these days I'll try using it without a hoop.......(I'm telling myself good luck with that one....lol).

    We've had tons of conversations about this so will post a link to that search too.

    I still have mine, but don't use it much, I can do straight lines with it but curves are another story, and I did double hearts the last large quilt so didn't use it.

    I was given one by a friend. It really does help me with hand quilting as I have so many hand problems already.

    Luckily, I do more machine quilting.
