Hi, Since I am a hand quilter for hire I have learned to do it all kinds of ways. For a bed size quilt I use on of my two standing frames. I have a 24 inch round Hintenberg frame hoop on a stand and a 24 inch square Grace hoop frame. Also on a stand. I learned long ago to quilt with either hand which is almost a necessity in a frame. I also have up to 20 needles at a time going. Between turning the hoops and using that many needles I can basically quilt the entire area in the frame before having to move it. For smaller more portable items I have several different size PCP frames. I often finish the borders by laying the almost completed quilt on a table so that I can work along the edges without any hoop.
