I just got my flynn quilt frame and was really surprised at how great it handles. I only put a small scrap piece in to try it out so I couldn’t stretch the sides correctly. The frame only allows about a 4 inch depth on my machine, but you can quilt from left to right over the entire quilt. I love that it holds the backing rolled up as you need it. No more wrinkles or caught pieces from trying to squeeze my quilt through my home machine.
Can’t wait to try it on some of my quilt tops.
Trying my new frame
My first attempt
I almost forgot, my “Rock On” challenge piece, “Chuck E’s in Love” was published in the June/July 2009 issue of Quilting Arts magazine.
This is my unfinished quilt on God’s Grace. The stairs are white fabric that was painted increasingly darker. Strips were pieced with a blue organza fabric over the stair fabric. This would have been so much easier if I made a template or used freezer paper. I just eyeballed it and if it didn’t match my picture I unstitched and adjusted the angles. Oh well, I learned my lesson.
Now, I just can’t decide how to quilt it.
