    Have any of you hand quilters tried it. If so, did you like it and where did you buy it?

    I met the woman who invented it at a quilt show several years ago and she didn't use a hoop when she showed me how to use it. I know there is a video out there somewhere on how to use it, but I'll have to look to see if I can find it

    Do a quick search on this site for the Aunt Becky's and you can check the other discussions we've had about it too.

    When I saw the demostration at a quilt show, the woman was using very thin batting. I asked if thicker batting could be used & she said no. Because I didn't want paper thin batting, I opted not to get it. I'm sure it is like anything, the more practice you get, the better you will get at using it. She did make it look easier & boy, was she fast.

    I have the Aunt Becky tool. The more you practice, you will eventually get the hang of if. Practice, practice and watch the video on QuiltersTV.
