|Hinterberg Floor Stand Hoop|
|Hinterberg Sit-Upon Lap Hoop|
I have trouble getting comfortable with the Hinterberg Lap Hoop while sitting in my favorite chair. I've found that you really need to be sitting on firm chair for it to work . . . at least that has been my experience so far.
The Hinterberg floor stand hoop is nice; in fact, I think it is actually a pretty piece of furniture. You can tilt it in any direction depending on how you like to hand quilt. However, I have the same problem with this hoop as I do with the lap hoop, and that is the fact that I can't sit in my comfy TV chair.
I heard that Jasmine Heirloom Quilt Frames are good so I checked them out. I ended up purchasing this one:

Even so, I still find myself looking and hoping to find the perfect hand quilting frame. Some ladies in my quilting group really like the Grace Z44 frame. It is a 'no baste' frame and folds almost flat for easy storage when you're not quilting.

But even with this frame I'm left with the fact that I can't sit in my comfy TV chair when quilting. I'm beginning to realize that this is somthing I need to accept if I want to continue hand quilting my quilts.
If anyone knows of a good hand quilting frame that is 'no baste' and allows you to sit in an easy chair, I'd love to hear about it.
Until next time . . .
