Toes in The Sand Finished!!

Today I am linking up with Finish It Up Friday and Friday Night Sew In.
 
I have completed my BOM called Toes In The Sand.
 
 
First some close ups.
 


 
And now the completed quilt top.

 
I really enjoyed using the Hex n More ruler. It made cutting and piecing triangle, hexagons and jewels so easy.
 
I think I might hand quilt this,  but I have a question for you...
 
I am dreaming of owning one of these.


 
It's a Z44 hand quilting frame made by the Grace Frame Company.
 
Do you own one?
Have you used one?
Would you recommend them?
 
I just love hand quilting and find it's too hot in Summer here in Australia. Definitely a Winter time activity.
I want to hand quilt my Violet quilt once completed and it will be about 93" square once piecing is complete. I just can't imagine trying to quilt that in a hand held frame.
 
Would love some feedback on this to help me with my decision.
Thanks

  1. The frame is very high quality and I would suggest a test drive before buying. I found that I couldn't stitch away from me or from left to right. Your quilt is beautiful!
