Alex Anderson hosted a male quilter in a few episodes. Can't remember his name. He quilts by hand using a frame. Does gorgeous work.
He quilts for 8 hours at a time - just as he'd put in a full day at any other job.
Talk about ability to stay focused! Even if my hands didn't get too tired to keep going that long, my attention span would never hold out. LOL
He's my Hand-Quiltin'-Hero!
His name is Joe Cunningham. He was one of the guests on the first episode of "The Quilt Show" on www.thequiltshow.com. And you can watch that one for free there too.
He uses a frame made with 1"X2"s & C-clamps, for hand quilting and also for basting with either thread or pins. Looked easy to make, and basting that way sounds much easier than on the floor or draped over a table!
