    A 120x120. Once you have it basted it is not too bad just take lots of breaks. Glad it is quilting up nicely for you.

    A meandering 120 x 120 many times on a Viking Sapphire 830 - have upgrade my quilting machine to a Baby Lock Jane and things are going swimmingly on it
    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.

    About 120 x 120, and I did it on the dining table of our fifth wheel trailer! That was also the first quilt I ever machine quilted. It's not so hard to do things when no one is around to tell you why you can't!

    120 x120. It wasn't easy, but LA is not in my budget.

    King 120 X120 and you should have seen my sewing room. I had everything in there around my sewing table to help support that heavy bugger. Ironing board, TV trays, my small table, etc. Wasn't too bad after I got the weight off my shoulders

    Wow! I had a tough time with a full size quilt, can't imagine you all doing the king size ones!?

    Forget who said they have a long arm but wants to try doing it on DSM, why?

    Has anyone used the Janome 11000 where you quilt in the hoop? I am considering buying one, but I wonder if it would be a pain to keep moving the fabric every 6" or so? They make a 10" hoop too, but that seems like a lot of unclasping and moving fabric?

    Yes, it does. I haven't quilted anything that large but even in the smaller ones I've done I've noticed the batting makes a big difference. I use low loft poly batting and even the brand of that makes a difference, I've discovered.

    On my Bernina 830 LE, 114 x 122 for super King. Didn't have any problems.

    120x120 on my Janome 6600P. I had space to support it and as Ricky Timms says...quilted it one pot holder at a time.
    Happy Quilting.

    You can do just about anything on a 1500! Give it a try.

    I did a king size 110x110 on my White quilters star. I used a very thin batting and just quilted in diagonals. It was quite a challenge but doable

    Wow.....I've sent all my large quilts out to my longarmer as I lack confidence in myself. I have a Janome 6600P......reading this post has made me think that MAYBE just MAYBE I could do this!!

    Question: When you baste your quilts, do you just run across your quilts every 12 inches or so end to end and across??? Or even further apart than that??
