I have finished tops to 3 quilts (flower garden, grandmas favorite & rainbow square) . But I did not have a large quilting hoop or frame. My first thought was to go to a sewing machine store to buy a machine especially for quilting or at least find a frame or hoop for full or larger size quilts. Wow was I surprised to find out that sewing/quilting/embroidery machines have went high-tech. You hardly have to sew at all. The machines can be programmed to quilt for you. Now this technology is very expensive also. The least expensive quilting machine was $2200. They accept trade-ins and payment plans almost like buying a car. Can you believe it? They also only had small embroidery hoops. Nothing as large as I wanted.
So I went to Amazon & purchased 2 wooden quilting hoops for around $50. One is a round hoop of 23 inches in diameter. The second one is an 18 x 27 inch oval hoop. I figured that I could use these while watching television and not have to get a loan for a special quilting machine.
I may change my mind in the future but for now I will be hand quilting.
