    I am thinking about buying either; Aunt Becky's quilting tool, or TJ's quick quilter. Has anyone tried both? What was your preference?

    Aunt Becky has been talked about on this forum before, but I can't find any posts about TJ's quick quilter.

    Appreciate any advice or recommendations that you lovely ladies have.

    I know the lady who holds the selling rights for the quick quilter. I have never used it but I have seen her demo it and she does beautiful quilting with it. She is a member of the Quilt Profesionals Network I used to belong to as a Handquilter for Hire. It has been several years since I attended one of their meetings. She might have a web site. I would try googling the name of the product. If she has a web site it probably has a demo of the product.

    I have an Aunt Becky's I cannot believe that I have not given it to you!! It is a little bent piece of metal that forces the hand needle back up through the fabric, helping to regulate hand stitching.

    Funky Monkey, you can have mine!! A gifto. More STUFF!!!!!

    I have taken the Aunt Becky class from Jean Brown who also does beatiful work. I still have not quite got the hang of it, it is so different than the way I was taught to hand quilt. I am determined to learn, because the stitches are beautiful and it is really fast. Jean has a web site that shows her demonstration for the Aunt Becky. http://www.jeansimpressions.com/
