For several years now, I have been eying the smaller mid-arm quilting systems. There was one particular quilting machine that always drew my attention.
So last year when finances had improved, and there was a better place to set one up, I was seriously considering making the purchase. But alas, the mid-arm machine that I wanted was no longer being made! The company took the size 16 and made a sit down table. I was very disappointed.
For me, this sit down table does not solve my particular quilting problem. I can quilt on my Bernina, but it has been a challenge to keep the back taunt and not pucker.
If you have ever watched John Flynn quilt, he turns his machine so the smaller area is to the back. Why not try it myself.
I am going to try this on different ufo's that have been waiting patiently for my attention.
It doesn't really make any sense to me to buy another table when I can use my Bernina to do the quilting.
Have you ever tried quilting this way?? I'll keep you posted on my progress :-)
