What lovely colours, its a very striking quilt.
I am amazed that people send there finished pieces to be quilted by someone else, I find that part to be most relaxing. I live in England and patchwork and quilting is not as popular and I would be surprised if there were many people who sent their quilts away to be finished, but what a lovely way to make a living. I only do it by hand so it would take forever to become rich doing it for other people.

Where is here? And your quote is about $20 less. I do appreciate your responding and giving me a current price (tho your price is the same as I paid 3 or 4 years ago when I visited Denver and had a quilt top done for a niece). Reasonable.

ccbear, you are sooo lucky, wish I was closer. Have never heard of anyone doing quilting that reasonable. No one around here puts on the
binding, but I like that part too.
I have someone recommended by a local shop that is good and reasonable. The latest ones I had done were $27.00 each, 46x36. :wink:

This combo goes for about $950 at sewvactdirect.com Its the Grace Sturdy Lite frame and Juki TL98QE machine (it has a 9" throat) it also comes with a speed control and CAD. The quilt I'm doing now is the second I have done on this comb It will do up to a queen size

There is a woman locally who quilts inexpensively and provides the batting, but I don't like her batting - it's way too puffy for me. So I just gave her the batting for mine. I tried to be tactful about it...

anyhow, just make sure you get references and see her work if possible.

That is for the machine AND the frame right? If so that's not a bad price. and to make it King all you'd have to do is add wide borders. Quilting on any machine wouldn' be too difficult if just doing the borders. I may plan to go with something like that. The cheapest long arm I've found was a BAILEY. For about $3,500. Any one familiar with that brand?

I was wondering how much area does the Grace Frame require?

yes I'm familiar with the bailey brand. i have a bailey 15 pro it gives me 15" of sewing space from needle to the back of the machine it runs quite and vary smooth, it has a speed control, i have it on a hinterburg frame i love how easy it is to do really big quilts in a shorter time. here check out this site this is where i got my machine from and have been vary happy with it. hope this helps.
