    Well,

    I'm excited to say that I have in my sewing room a new (new to me) Viking Mega Quilter and an Inspira Frame. Also I was excited to find in a box yet unopened by the previous owner the Quilter's Cruise Control....SO EXCITED!!

    The woman purchased this in 2006, and used it twice, it had been sitting in her sewing room collecting dust. So I purchased it for $1000. She just wanted to get it out of her sewing room I think.

    So here's my questions....the instructions for putting it together are TERRIBLE, but I have everything except I don't know what order the large rollers that hold the batting, backing, etc go.

    There is a VHS tape that goes with it, but I don't have a VCR...:P

    So if anyone can give me any pointers let me know.

    I have the same setup. Let me see (I'm working from memory), the roller at the very bottom is for batting, the next one up for the quilt top and the 2 rollers on top (front and back) are for your quilt backing.

    Hope this is the info you are looking for. Enjoy!!

    The bar on front near the floor is for batting. Do not use as it gets in my way. I removed it from the frame. The roller closest to you is for the back. Middle roller is for the quilt top and the last roller is for other end of backing. Hope this helps.

    Have you contacted the manufacturer to see if they have a DVD? It might be worth a shot. There are some PDFs I found thru Google, but I would imagine you already have written instructions.

    I just got a mega quilter and inspira frame but with the shelf is that the type you have. I'm sure by now you've quilted quite a few quilts can you tell me what you think of your system...I got a dvd from a friend because mine didn't have one it
    had a vcr and I don't have one of those either. Mine is together and I've quilted some panel to practice. Still need time to get it right. Want to get some longarm dvd's to see if it can help......Jean
    Once you met me you"ll never forget me....Jean

    Thanks for the link. I had a DVD but cannot find it now. I do not have Qbot. But I do have the cruise control. Are there on-line instructions for the cruise control?
