Practice, Practice

I am getting lots of practice in with the Hinterberg quilt frame. I've completed the quilting on a lap size quilt for my mother, a throw size quilt for one of my granddaughters, and a wall hanging that my mother pieced. the wall hanging was definitely a challenge. Three different quilt motifs -- stippling, a free-form half flower, and then my first attempt at doing feathers. I also had to do blanket stitches on my other machine for the appliques.
While the wall hanging is far from being perfect, overall I was satisfied with the finished product. Hey, its good practice. If I don't keep trying and learning, what's the point of having a quilting frame?

    1. Alicia - they were part of the wall hanging kit. You might be able to find a font online and make your own.

  2. I converted my Hint. Orig frame to fit my new 17 inch Bailey's. I am having problems advancing my quilt. Do you roll the back roller to advance it?

    1. Yes, you need to roll the quilt onto the back roller to advance it. There is a Hinterberg group on Yahoo Groups if that will help.
