Connecting Threads has them in their current catalog. I'm thinking that I would get the biggest one which is a 6 1/2" square and costs $26.50. I could use it for any HST up to 6 1/2" square.

Can any please direct me to obtaining free patterns? Maybe the "Surprise" pattern by Karen DeMont or the pattern that was in Quiltmaker Classics Vol. 1 Summer 2013 by Mae E. Lewis ?

Hello, I am considering purchasing a b line studio quilt frame with a Juki tl98q machine. I have not used a frame before, except very briefly a long arm 2 or 3 lines. Does anyone have or know of this setup and how it works for the owner? I have a very small house and a quilt frame is rather large. Im worried. Thanks
