I am new here. I know how to sew but don't do it very well. But now I'm going to try a baby quilt for my first grandchild. This will be a cheaters quilt. The quilt top has already been pieced together. I plan to use pre-quilted batting piece for the middle. Is that a good idea? So really, all I have to do is put the three layers together and bind.
I want to tye this quilt. I am no different than most of you in that I am limited on space and since I'm not sure if I will enjoy quilting (or be any good at it), I don't want to spend a lot of money of supplies until I'm sure. I would appreciate any suggestions on what type of frame/hoop to get. I will most likely be purchasing used so is there anything I should watch out for. I mean do they get damaged over time and how would you know?
I really appreciate any input you can give.
