I apologize to those of you who were wanting to know more about how the frame worked. It’s been a busy summer and then lots of computer issues.
Here is a picture of my quilt in the frame at the machine.
This piece is still unfinished. I must continue thread painting on the faces and hands. But with the other quilting done it is making in very easy to work with.
The background circles for this piece were quilted on the Flynn frame. Most machines have between the have from 6 – 9 inches of space between the needle and the back post of the machine. Although my machine has a smaller amount of room and I only had about 4-41/2″ of quilting space it still worked quite well. I was able to quilt small circles across the width of my quilt and then roll it to the next section and keep going.
I found the frame very easy to adjust and easy to control. I was very pleased with how flat and nice the back of the quilt was, not puckers at all.
One thing you need to make sure is that your batting is at least two inches more than the quilt top all the way around and that your backing is also around 6 inches longer on each end of the quilt to fit in the frame.
This was definitely a great buy for those of us who are on a low budget.
