I have a q-snap frame I would be willing to sell. It can be small or large if you want. It is the standard Qsnap, with a king size extension kit and 2 tilt kits. PM me if you're interested.

I have the Grace Z44. Not as easy to load as they make out in the video. If I had to do it over, I think I'd buy the Ulmer quilt frame. Google it to see the features. It is more portable, etc.

I bought something that would not allow any of the quilt to touch the floor, because I have dogs and I feared they would chew it, etc.

The Grace is good in that way. I guess my dissatisfaction with the Grace is the amount of room that it takes up. My quilting room is only 8x10, so this frame takes 3' by 9' of space. If I had a larger space, this would not be an issue.

Thank-you to all that welcomed me- I recently inherited 2 quilts from my husbands grandmother. Both quilts were sewn together by hand, one is finished the other needs to be quilted - I have done some hand quilting but feel I need more than a round small frame for this big project. I also want to make sure it stays tight. I am very excited about starting this project and realize that it will take a long time but, I am very committed to finishing the quilt.I think the quilts must be from the 50's. I am proud to be the keeper of both of these quilts.
