    Husqvarna Viking 9" with Inspira frame, cruise control, and laser

    Just purchased this used, and now I'm doing some research. I know that's the wrong order, but it was a kind of spur of the moment purchase.
    Any advice, or things to be aware of? I think my main concern at this late stage is limited space. Does anyone have any good news on that? How much space will I have typically with low loft batting?

    That's good to know. I wouldn't have thought to turn it. So 3", turn, repeat.....hmmm.

    I use my Bernina 440 on a Bernina quilt frame (made by Grace Co.) and I too have a limited quilting area but have managed to quilt 3 full to queen sized quilts on it and several baby quilts. You just have to stop and roll more often, oh, and choose a smallish design to quilt. You can do block quilting but you would have to do one half first, then roll quilt, and then do the second half. Unless experienced, it might be hard to line your work up perfectly.
    Next quilt I do I'm using 'groovy' boards with a stylus. Hope it's as easy as it looks!

    I have the same outfit love it, this is a nice set up to start with, I have quilted a king size quilt with it. I have the panto haven't used them yet. I use onions paper and trace the pattern then put it on the quilt and quilt. I have never had a problem with it. I really enjoy it/
