    I have the Flynn Frame, a Greer Extension table accrillic, and an extra table to hold the Flynn roller.
    The grey table is a resin one that you can find anywhere.
    The little one (dog) just happened to be laying there when I snapped the picture.

    I've thought about the Flynn frame, too. How long are the rods that you are using? I guess what I'm asking is how big of a quilt do you think you can make using that kind of a set-up? And is this your 1st time using it?

    48 inches - 4 feet. Yes this is my first time using it. I figure anything that can fit on it can be done. Not sure if you can fold edges over to accomidate larger pieces or not. Will have to do some experiments.
    It is pretty easy to assemble.

    If you are quilting on a frame, it is the only way the frame will fit. If you are doing it with hands, moving the fabric around with your hands while free motion then you face the machine like you were piecing.
