    Has anyone seen or used one of these? I scanned an image from a quilt magazine advertisement, and also below is a link to their site. I see they are going to be in Paducah so perhaps I'll get to see it ... and maybe try it.

    I'm thinking about not for hand-quilting, but for machine quilting.

    Just wondering if it's another gadget that looks like it would be nice but in reality isn't worth the bother.

    I had one and didn't care for it. It was OK for a wall hanging or lap quilt but anything larger was too hard for me to handle.

    It takes a lot of practice. But that is probably true with any type of quilting. You also need a very long table to do anything much bigger than a twin.

    I have one but have been too intimidated by it to use it.
