    hI, sorry I'm English and words have different meanings. Hand quilting I sandwich the back middle(batting / wadding) and top inthe normal way. taping back to the hard surface then carefully putting middle on and finally top quilt. I then pin every 4 inches in alll dirrections. If i am hand quilting I then tack ie use a large stitch to hold fabric so I may remove pins. #I never hand quilt using pins they get in the way of the thread when stitching.

    I mixing fabric dye and it says wear a mask. I didn't have one and as I live in a village with a 6 mile drive to buy one I improvised with a part of my clothing that was in the rubbish bin. I worked perfectly.

    I'm sorry Dottymo, What are you wearing on your face? Here we'd say you were incognito...

    I love it! As you can tell...I'm not photogenic at all...a mask wouldn't help me unless I could get one to cover my entire body...which is why I like hand quilting...I'm covered up most of the time!

    I have a large Hintenburg round on a stand, but can't hand quilt anymore so it just gathers dust.

    I had the type that would be rolled up or down by small ropes.
    Granny used to have to roll them up when it was time to eat because they all sat around the old dining table (which I have now)to quilt. Then I also had some that were in a small frame and your rolled the quilt as you quilted. I am sorry to say I got rid of both types. I use hoops or else I use my sewing maching.

    I have a Grace3 that has never been used....long story. Now I have a Grace long arm and I am learning to use it. Soooo I'm going to sell the Grace 3. They sell for $297.00 but I think I'll ask $100.00. What do you all think?

    I have several wooden hoop frames, the PVC pieces that make several different sized frames, an oval floor frame, an old card table with the top ripped off and the upper frame wrapped with fabric to pin to,an old fashioned frame made of 1X2's and held together with C clamps, and I don't use any of them. I pin or use the new spray glue to hold the quilt layers together and then quilt them in my lap with no frame at all. That seems to work best for me.

    Do you like your Ulmer Quilt Frame? I'm new at this quilting thing and not much space so ulmer seems the way to go. I have been looking for a used one so I don't sink a lot of money in a frame when it might not work out for me. Thanks

    Hi In response to my comment on quilt to tie---I need a frame to hold and tighten top and the back so I can tie the top to back at certain points of the quilt. I hope I explained this right. Nancy
