    Hi, I am Lannie from west Texas. I am a great grandmother finally taking the time to do what I always wanted to do....make a quilt. I am interested in hand quilting and would like to know more about what is the best/easiest quilting frame to use.
    Happy Quilting!

    Hi and welcome from another Texan. Glad you joined us. The only time I hand quilted, I used a lap hoop, maybe 14 or 15" in diameter. I have a pvc frame, but I've only used it for tying quilts. We have lots of hand quilters in this group, so I'm sure someone will give you good advice.

    Welcome from a hand quilter from East Texas. I use a hoop that has a stand that I rest in my lap. That frees up both hands so I can use one on top with the needle and the other on the underside.

    Hello, welcome and Happy Quilting from Germany!

    I use a 18" hoop on a stand (Jasmine) and although this hoop is quite expensive I love it. I do all my quilts in it, big and small ones.

    Hello from Western Maryland !!
    I hand quilt, I have a Grace EZ frame from the Grace Company. It is adjustable. I really like it, search at top of page or google Quilting Frames.

    I'm overwhelmed at the great welcome from so many. And thanks so much for all the advice regarding a quilting frame. I'll be spending more time with the search on this forum and more "window-shopping" before I buy another one. Thanks again!
