    Flynn Multi-frame system ???????

    Has anyone bought and used this frame for quilting? I'm thinking about
    saving for it but wanted some advice.
    I have so many quilt tops to quilt and there is no way I can aford to have someone quilt for me.

    Are they running a special? LOL someone else just started a thread about this a little bit ago! Here is a link to that thread: http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...g-t197967.html

    and here is a link to a search for the Flynn system here on QB. http://www.quiltingboard.com/search....archid=3729182

    I use mine for Linus quilts with an overall meandering which works great. I'm not very clever at being able to do any other FMQ with it, so I use the frame with water soluable thread to baste my quilts and then FMQ on my domestic machine.

    I bought one too and sold it without ever using it. I just couldn't go to the trouble of setting it up. Maybe if you had a machine set up that way permanently. I like my machine with a wider bed.

    I see lots of them for sale. I think the show demo's make it look easier than it is.

    I have one and use it. Have my 'quilting machine' set up on a 6 foot banquet table in my spare spare room....
    I do not make any thing bigger than a twin, so it works fine for me....
    There is a learning curve...that you kinda have to get thru....you have to 'learn' how to attach the backing, batting and top to the rods....but once you do a couple ....it works well for me....
    I did buy mine used at a far reduced rate over full price....and for what you get it works for me.......

    HI, I started the other thread or tried to, but not sure what happened to it and when I clicked on the link that Auntiepiggylpn suggested I got nothing. Anyway I am interested in what people have to say. I have quilted on rNolting, HQInfusion also Gammill but just don't have room for anything like that and I am basically doing small quilts for charity or twin bed size so thought this might be helpful.


    Thanks for all the comments-----stilll undecided might look for a used one.

    For large quilts it takes more room than a long arm. Think about it, you are guiding the quilt from one end to the other thru your sewing machine. You need a large table and you have to have pvc pipes to roll on the table to keep the frame on. You cannot hold the thing up without the pvc pipes to roll on. My pvc kept falling off the table as they dont roll straight.
    It is fine for small quilts but so is your sewing machine. Free motion for small quilts works fine on your regular sewing table.

    I'm interested to read these comments as I've watched the video online and they make it look easy but I've been skeptical. I don't think it looks like it's worth the money.

    I am so excited Snow thanks so much for sending me the frame. Can't wait to get busy quilting a top. I'm trying to leave you feedback BUT can't figure out how. I went to your profile that feedback score but can't see where it says leave feedback. its driving me nuts

    I think you may be right. I had a lot of customers who were dissatisfied with the Flynn system....I don't have personal experience with it, though.

    If you look at the thread about things that you bought and regretted there are a bunch of comments about it.

    I had one...used it once...and sold it. To me it seemed like such a limited area to quilt in, and I move faster than that when I quilt. Maybe for very small meandering it could work ok.

    I use mine. I don't know how anyone could use it just a few time and get good with it. I practiced a lot and now it's easy as can be. I have two 6ft tables with my machine set in the middle. The tables fold up and easy to store and I keep the JF frame stored assembled. It cost under $150 and I can do end to end simple designs quick.
    Got fabric?

    I'm interested in this frame. I'm also thinking of the Brother 1500. I have the quilting accessory for the Pfaff, it works, but since I can't see where I'm going, it drives me nuts. It only has a 7x9 opening. You also can't sew on the Pfaff without the pedal. (but you can embroider with the pedal. Use up old metallic thread that breaks) The nice thing was it had a Qbot.

    I have absolutely no intention of doing a quilt by the standard method. I did a king size on a Pfaff 1471 and dealing with all that fabric in one place just killed any interest. I have now found QAYG and can live with that. I probably wouldn't do beyond 24" square. Since I also have Electric Quilt, I can do what I want, and I like sashing.

    I have no room and no desire for a large system. I've played with them, they are nice, but too big.

    I want to try some of the freehand patterns. The simple ones I can do on the Pfaff, but not freehand. I use the built-in walking foot. Not too hard once you get the hang of it. But if the curves are small, then it's a nuisance.

    How small will the frame go? I just might want to do one square (8 1/2 or larger) at a time. I prefer working one square, one row at a time. Mass production bores me. Then there's the little Edmund frame. Looks like that would work like one of those hoop things they free motion with. It's cheap enough.

    Thanks
