    Here is an affordable quilting frame!

    I watched all of Ken's videos on You Tube and then I emailed him and he responded quickly. I decided to order his Deluxe kit and it is in the mail on it's way to me as of yesterday!!

    I am ready to start machine quilting. I think his frame looks like a great way to do that. Take a peek at one of his videos...

    Just sent him an email to order one, too. I have asked him to explain the difference in the 3 kits he offers and also if there is a price difference in the 3 roller and 4 roller kits. I think this will be perfect for my needs. Now all I need to do is practice my FMQ skills, which are somewhat lacking at this point. I am also wondering if I need to get a lighter weight machine than my Janome 10001, which is very heavy.

    I have been looking at this frame for quite some time. Which one would be the best to buy? I think I will bite the bullet and buy one as well........

    I am waiting for my kit to arrive sometime this week. Ken sent me an email that it was mailed out.
    I ended up buying a sturdy quilting machine to use with it. I got the Brother PQ 1500S. I think it will do better since it stitches up to 1,500 stitches per minute. I'm afraid it would have taken my "every day" Brother machine too long and worn it out!

    With the frame I love the idea of moving the machine slightly instead of trying to move all the fabric with my hands. I tried doing that a few years ago "free motion" and I can say I did not enjoy it at all. I think using this frame will change all that and make it enjoyable!!

    Check out this ladies video on what she uses with her quilting machine....

    She has a website and sells the things she is showing.

    Thanks for this info, nygal. I'm going to watch all of his videos in the morning because it 11.51pm here and I don't want to miss any of it. I have a frame but think I can learn something from this man. Thank you for the links.

    Thank you so much for posting this. I'm giving it to my DH to see if he could put it all together and it sure is less then a large, regular quilt frame for quilting.

Size:  847.3 KBDid you ladies order your frames? Here is mine. I am almost done "practicing" on that cheater panel. I learned a lot so far. Next one I practice on will be a dark solid color and I'll use a light color thread so I can see my stitches better. Plus I need to have the batting and the backing much larger than I did on this one. The frame is working fine for me. I am still getting use to my new machine!! The foot pedal has a different "feel" to it then my regular sewing machine so it takes me a little time to get into the groove of the perfect speed etc.

    I am more than happy with the frame set up.

    Would it be possible for someone that has this frame to post a picture of the wheels. I have a frame like that but I think I need beter wheels and I'm not sure what kind I need to buy. Thanks a bunch.

    I think this picture shows the wheels better. I am done with that first panel quilt. Next I am going to use a dark solid blue fabric and either use the chalk Pounce on the fabric with a stitch pattern or use a paper pattern and see how I do following the lines.
