    Here is my new toys! I love it. It runs like a champ. My husband helped me with the table. He put a piece of plywood on it and fastened it down, because the table was bouncing when I was quliting.

    The little quilt my son is holding is the first one to be honored on the frame ahahaha Iknew he would appreciate my work, even it looked horrid lol

    I am going to try and add more pictures of my sewing room (it use to be "the office", now dubed "the studio" hahahah

    I love your new studio

    I bet you're really going to start cranking out the quilts now!

    Congrats Wendy!

    Did you have to change out the tracks after you got your frame?

    Thank you everyone!
    Lynn, I changed out the tracks because I wanted it to be bigger is all. it was 6 foot, now I have it set at 8 foot. plus DH said he would put an extension on it smoehow for me to go bigger if I wanted.

    Question for everyone.... have you used a fleece like blanket on a frame for a backing before? If so, how did it work out? I have one and want to use it on this next practice top
