My wonderful husband thinks of the nicest gifts ...
For Christmas, he got me a quilting frame that works with a regular sewing machine!
It's a Flynn Multi-Frame, and I'm loving it. It's a handy little setup that holds and tensions the quilt back separately from the quilt top, while holding everything together securely enough that no basting is required.
Welcome to wrinkle-free quilt backs! Yay!
This quilt frame allows for the kind of free-motion-quilting that I love, with very few limitations.
For now, the quilt frame rods are sized for small quilts, but the rods are interchangeable for longer ones, so that's a great option to look into soon.
Seriously, this thing is amazing. See the FlynnQuilt website, and watch their video to see the versatility. (This is not a paid endorsement, just the honest opinion of a happy quilter!)
This is progress on one of those baby quilts I started a couple months ago.
With my new quilt frame, I've already quilted 3 little quilts, and I'm thrilled!
The pictures in this post are pictures of just one of those three just-quilted quilts. (White on the front, pinks and purples on the back.)
I had fun trying out a lot of little favorite FMQ designs on this one, with fun results.
So far, so good!Be watching for another post soon about the other two quilts I just quilted on my new quilt frame!
