    Does anyone use a home machine or a babylock and use it on a HandiQuilter frame?

    I used my Lily 555 on a tabletop HandiQuilter frame. DH made the table and had to level it because the floor was uneven. When I did large quilts I used bicycle hooks to stop the sagging that occurs.

    That's interesting. I can't do big quilts because mine didn't come with a longer channel and I am missing an extension for one of the poles. I got mine at an auction for $300 including a Baby Lock pro. I am surprised that no others responded.

    Have you ever used any of the rulers that long armers use?

    I had to special order the extension.
    Never used a ruler just meandered.
    Lost it & my Lily in our house fire. :(

    I replaced it with an Inspira frame. Got the floor model at a quilt show for about the same price that I would have paid for a new HQ. Since the Inspira has legs, DH did not have to build a table for me. I was able to use it out of the box so to speak.
