Ok, I went to the Phoenix Quilt Show and the LQS had a booth with New Joy quilt frames that work with 5 or 6 different regular sewing machines i.e., Juki TL 98Q, Brother 1500, Babylock QCP, etc. The representative told me that some quilters will start a quilt, quilt it half way, then flip the quilt and start quilting from the other end. This avoids running out of quilting space at the end of the quilt since you are limited to a 9 inch throat. She couldn't explain it clearly because she had never done it herself.
My question is...How in the world does that work? How do you keep the quilt from bunching up in the middle? How do you turn it around when it's half quilted? I can't wrap my brain around it. I hope someone out there has done this and can tell me if it works?
