i know i dont have the space to make anything big, but i want one. i have resolved myself to not owning an actual long/mid/short arm and frame, anytime in the remotely near future, but i have wanted this since i decided hand quilting sucks (for me, i am mucho impatient) way back in, say, august or september 08. (i know, torture)
i thought i would want a grace frame for hand quilting, those are much less costly, but my meager attempts at hand quilting in a hoop were super lame and i wanted to cry. I do not have the patience at this time in my life. Also, i am a great starter, and a horrible finisher, so visions of quilts piled up and never actually finished were springing into my brain. And so i decided i want a long arm, used.
umm, still too much.
so yesterday, when my mother in law gave me a birthday check, she mentioned i might want to get one of the things on my christmas wish list. i believe they were a good iron>$7, a 1/4 inch quilting foot, and the john flynn quilt frame.
i got the iron for xmas, it hasn't died on me yet, so i will be putting that $100 towards the $130ish cost of the flynn frame. and PVC pipes are also fairly cheap, so the larger frame sizes will be a possibility in the future.
I have also been searching for anything flynn frame blog related while at work(and can only read blogspot blogs), since i am now again lusting over this piece of equipment which will dramatically improve the quality of my life. right?
at least until i find that long arm sitting on the curb waiting for me to get it.
