    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!

    Hello. Is the name of your frame the Next Generation? I was at Joanns the other day and that is exactly what I am looking for. The one there has a machine that comes with it too. It is a Mega quilter by Husqvarna. I am interested in buying one soon. Please let me know if you would like to re-sell yours. Thank you Lecia

    I have a quilt frame and I use muslin to cover the poles so I can attach the quilting fabric. I take one piece of muslin and fold in half that is the width of the poles plus 3 to 4 inches, double that. Now put wrongs side together, seger the edge together, turn and sew a seam the width of the pole. This makes a casement to put the poles in. Then you pin the qulting fabric to the muslin and you are ready to go. I layer all my pieces and then roll.
    I pin baste from the center out both ways and it works great.

    I was very fortunate to inherit my Grandmother's wooden quilting frame. She bought it either from a Sears or JC Penny catalog in the early 70's. She also bought the extentions for it to make queen and king size quilts. I've had it stored in my sister's attic until a few weeks ago. I plan on using it to tie out my Nine-Patch top. As soon as I get it all set up I will take a photo and upload.

    I have the Flynn frame. I had a hard time with it. You need the right size pvc pipe to roll it around on. Its kinda hard to set up. your machine has to be set up with the end of the arm facing you so changing the bobbin is a real hassle. Plus you have to have a long table for the pvc pipe to roll on. It is more trouble than it is worth.
    I bought a new sewing machine with a 10 ince arm and that has helped alot with moving my quilt around. Those few inchs do make a difference.
