Title: Q-Snap Floor Frame

Iīm planing on doing some hand-quilting on a larger quilt and I really dont like to use my hoop for those. I was looking in the internet and in Germany the prices for those nice wooden frames are insane. I would have to pay for a Grace Frame Z44 Pro Fabric Fast Quilting Frame over $1.200 - well I found the Q-Snap Floor Frame - does anyone of you ladies have experience with this frame - would it be a ok choice or a no better stay away from it???

Thanks for your help
Karin

Karin--I had one of those floor frames and it was great--loved it. But, due to a shoulder problem I had to quit using mine. Could not reach under the quilt any longer, so had to go back to my hoop. I think you will be happy
with it. They are light weight and you can easily move them to any area to work plus they have a nice large working area.

I usually find that what you start out with, you get used to and are happy with it. If this is your first large frame, you won't have anything different to compare it to and you won't miss any features that others may offer.

My sister has small Qsnap for her cross stitch and she says it works just as good as her expensive wood one.

Do you do a lot of hand quilting? I haven't tried it yet.
Hope you get something that works. :smiley:

Karin, I have one and love it. You can tighten the fabric on it so easily, and, when you are finished with it, you can take it apart and store it easily. I didn't want a wooden frame that you cannot store easily. The Q frames might not be pretty as wood, but they are just as good.

Thanks for the answers and your opinion. I guess I will get me the Q-snap one - I dont have any experience with the big frames and just dont wanna spent a 150 $ on it and its a totally no go and would be better to save the money for one of the wooden ones.

TxMaryQuilts - I did some hand-quilting on my halloween-tablerunner, on my tools-quilt and Davic quilt. I do machine-quilting but only straight seams, I have trouble with the free-motion-thingy - always looks like a pic that belongs for ECG.

biz why don't you make your own,,my dh made one for me as a surprise but they are easy and if you by the same ones on line they are about 180 dollars, just get yourself some 1 inch pcv pipe from local hardware sore they will cut the length you want and they corner connectors and then just by the clip clamps that go on the top to hold the quilt, it works great easy to put together and holds the quilt great I love mine, this is what they look like,,or buy one here, these are so easy, http://store.quilting-warehouse.com/072038.html?gclid=CM-1itrJ75UCFQJNagodGmsMeA good luck on your search..

Hi Karin.. I only quilted on my Qsnap and have done Kingsize quilts on them with no problem at all.. in fact I like that I would turn the frame around and work anywhere.. the only thing is that you will have to baste your quilt.

But I love mine and was lucky enough to find a brand new one at a yard sale.. maybe someone would like to sell theirs put a wanted add and see if there are any takers.. I gave my used one to my mother so that she can quilt her King size on it.

If space is limited it is perfect. I found with a hoop that i had to hold the hoop and then try to quilt this way I don't have to hold onto anything but just quilt..
