Me too!

No, you're not the only one.

I quilted one quilt on a machine. My first, a big quilt. I tore off my thumb nail. I know you are supposed to get right back on but I don't want to quilt on a machine now. I have a Gracie EZ frame and am very happy quilting by hand.

I have been doing my quilting on a small brother 5" throat space. It's a workout. My hand quilting is AWFUL! My sewing room is 10'6" x 12' and I found a Juki & frame on Craigslist. The frame will only do up to a queen, but I've never quilted a King size quilt before. It takes up almost 1/2 my room and I really don't know what I'm doing yet, but I'm determined to learn it. And who knows maybe in a couple years I can find a large machine.

I have a Pfaff with an 10 inch throat and I can fmq a king size fairly easily.

I do all my own on an older viking. It's not hard, just takes practice.

I bought an HQ Sweet Sixteen sitdown and love it. I love to quilt and got tired of trying to get all that bulk through the throat of my Bernina.
