    Grace Q-Zone Quilt Frame

    Has anyone seen these or own one? This would fit into my home - in a couple of spaces actually! I am intrigued. It is definitely research worthy.

    Leah Day just did a very informative video on using the Q frame. She pointed out the bar goes inside the domestic sewing machine so you have less space available. But such a small foot print!

    And here is Leah assembling her Q frame

      You are not going to believe this! I just read an ad for the Q-frame and walked over to my laptop to check it out online. I clicked on my Missouri Star tab in my browser, and here's this thread! My jaw dropped at the coincidence!

        The price at just under $1000 seems a bit pricey to me. That surprised me for what you seem to be getting. Did anyone else feel that way?

          I played with one of these as the realestate it takes up is so small. It was not going to work for me as the quilts I make tend to be larger than the frame and seemed dramatic and cumbersome to frame the quilt sandwhich, and then have to completely do it over and over. This is similar to the littlefoot frame, which requires many “hoopings” for lack of a better term.

            It did not surprise me. I own a used, wooden Little Gracie, and I've been looking to upgrade to a metal frame for quite awhile. This sale price strikes me as a very good deal compared to the price of other metal Grace frames. I think that most of what you pay for is the smooth riding mechanics of the platform upon which you place your machine.

              Thanks! I really appreciate all the feedback. There are inconveniences associated with it. I've only just started looking into a sit-down quilting machine as opposed to a long frame due to the lack of space when I came across Leah Day's video. Still intrigued though. I would like something before retiring in a few years. Glad I don't have to make a decision soon.

                To me its too many parts to put together every time you have to move the quilts. And too little space on each pass. Also the trouble with checking and putting in a full bobbin.

                  This is interesting. This might an option since I don't want to sacrifice real estate for a LA. I do have a spare machine I could dedicate for this. I am going to a quilt show Friday and others over the next few months. I might see it in action.

                  Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                  Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

                    It would be nice to have one of those, but a little expensive for my pocket https://maquinasdecoserbaratas.net/bernina-bernette/
