I have a Grace frame which I know I could love more! I have a Kenmore machine that runs smoothly which is what I put on my frame. I put my quilt on & started to quilt. Having lots of fun & really getting my groove on but what is sooooo frustrating is the small throat. It really bugged me that I could only quilt in such a small area that I quit! Is it that I haven't figured it out yet? Meaning, when I start to quilt a straight line, I can only go about 4", so do you stop, re-roll the quilt, then carry on along the line? That seems like a lot of wasted time. Or am I not going about this the right way?
Now I'm not a "quitter" so I unpinned my quilt & sat back down at my Janome. I really want to get this quilt done so I'm doing mostly straight line quilting with the odd curve thrown in. Obviously, I would be ecstatic with another machine with a larger throat, so Gracie & I could play forever! Maybe some day I'll find a good deal in my part of the world.
