Wholecloth Quilts on a Frame!

So, I mentioned my new "toy" in my last post ... a quilt frame to use with my regular sewing machine!
 
This week, I quilted TWO baby quilts in ONE day with this handy tool. That never happens!

Like I mentioned in that post, I love that this frame lets me free-motion-quilt almost like usual, while keeping everything super flat.

Recently, I bought a few yards of really cute fabric prints, and I decided to experiment with some uncomplicated wholecloth quilts, as I keep learning how to use this handy new tool.

This little pink Princess quilt is 36" x 41", and it's for sale on eBay.
 
People often ask if I sell finished quilts ... Lately, the answer is, "I would, if they were easier to finish." Maybe this quilt frame will help with that!

For now, my quilt frame is only set up to make baby-size quilts ... but the rods are interchangeable for longer ones, so I may look into that option soon.

And here's little quilt number two ...

By the way, the quilt frame is a Flynn Multi-Frame. We got it on eBay for under $120. The company's website is www.FlynnQuilt.com & has details, and a very cool video demonstration. (This blog post of mine is NOT a sponsored post; just an honest opinion about this quilt frame, from a happy quilter.)

This little quilt is 40" x 40", and it's also for sale on eBay this week.

As usual, I attached the bindings on the sewing machine, after quilting with my favorite free-motion meander.

 I'm pleased to have these finished, and I'm linking this post to this week's Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

  1. What a wonderful gift! And thank you so much for posting the information about the quilting frames. I had seen this on the HGTV show, Simply Quilts, a few years ago, but the DVD made it so much easier to understand. My quilting frames, for hand quilting, are very similar, three rollers, but they rest on wooden supports that sit on the floor. Three rollers makes the process of putting up a quilt so much easier and faster.

  3. I had a Flynn frame ten years ago, and could never get it to look right. Looks like this new version is so much better. I hope you have lots of fun with it.
