I don't have one either - mostly do hand quilting or tying. Just starting to try basic machine quilting.

No, you are not the only one without a quilting machine. I don't
have anywhere to put one if I had it. I hand quilt all of mine.

I do all my quilting on my HV Sapphire 875, it has a 10" throat space. It makes it easier. Its set up in a Horn Quilter's cabinet, having a large flat space is great.
A long arm machine would be great, but no room for one at my house.

I do my quilting on my 20 year old New Home. It doesn't look like the work of a long arm, but it's what I can afford. :-D

No you are not the only one I don't have one or will ever get one I quilt all by hand and work a full time job.You cannot quilt more than a Baby quilt in the summer time for the heat and way to heavy. I love hand quilting and would never try on my small machine I don't have that much patience.

I have a small Brother that I have used since I started quilting about 5 years ago and I have machine quilted all my quilts on it. I don't say it is easy but it can be done and done well with practice. Just lately I discovered the QAYG method and found it to be so much easier that I probably won't go back to the other method except for small projects that I won't have to struggle with so much.

I don't have one and never will unless I win the lottery. I have quilted most of mine on a regular machine. A few special ones I have quilted.

I don't have one and don't want one. I hand quilt mine. I may not get very many done but they sure are pretty when finished. There is nothing to compare with the looks and softness of a hand quilted quilt.

I don't have one either, no room and the budget won't allow it either. I have done some small quilts on my machine, a few small projects were hand quilted and the rest get sent out when we have the extra money. ;-)
