    Hand Quilting

    How do you hand quilt in the summer? I have a quilt to repair, but it's too warm, and it's only 75.

    I sit at my dining room table, and use a small hoop. I do this all year round.

    I use a floor frame. I can quilt all year - on the really hot days I have a fan blowing on me.

    I use my Q snap floor frame in the air conditioning.

    I do. I just take breaks when I get too hot.

    It helps to keep it off your lap and having a fan too. This will probably be my first summer of piecing and quilting as I was always working before and not into quilting last summer. It will be interesting to see if I put it away for the summer or keep going at the pace I'm going now.

    In a hoop, I place the bulk of the quilt over a small folding table to keep the majority of it off my body.

    I quilt in a hoop on a floor stand all year long - the only thing I don't do in summer is quilting a wool batting!

    Not very lady like, but I sit with my legs spread and have the bulk of the quilt between them.

    Hand quilting in warm/hot weather?
    The a/c is on AND the ceiling fan at full speed.
