Cutie Frame - Collapses for Easy Storage!
No space for quilting? You can probably fit a Cutie!
Frame is expected back in stock early June 2021. Please contact us if you wish to order this frame and be added to the backorder list.
Introducing Grace Company's smallest and simplest quilting frame - the Cutie table top frame. This frame is designed to sit on any table surface you have in your home and collapse down when you're finished quilting so it can easily be tucked into a closet or under a tall bed.
This Cutie Frame comes with:
- Collapsible frame to hoop your quilt
- Bottom and Top carriage to hold your machine
- Front, back, and side clamps
- Front handlebars that can also be used to quilt from the back of the frame
Note - The Cutie Frame does not come with leader cloth. Click Here to find Leader Cloth compatible with frame.
One of the #1 requests from quilters about our Hoop Frames is - can it collapse?
This was the goal behind the design of the Cutie Frame. It's smaller with thinner rails and a quick back rail release. Your home sewing machine is easy to set in place because the handles are designed to slot under the quilt.
This Cutie Frame can fit on any sturdy flat surface, like a sewing table, kitchen/dining table, countertop, or foldable table for easy access to quilting anywhere! It's light and easy to maneuver for easy storage, and can be broken down for transport to different locations and even taken on vacation.
Most hobby quilters have a sewing machine set up for quilt piecing, but not enough room to create a dedicated space for quilting. Here is a frame you can pull out when you need it, move your machine in place, and quilt your project quickly.
What machines are compatible?
What is the biggest quilt you can quilt on this frame?
No limit! Just like our other Hoop Frames, you can quilt a king sized quilt on the Cutie Frame.
This frame works like a traditional hand quilting lap hoop - you clamp a section in the frame, quilt that area, then shift the quilt over and clamp a new space.
Because of the way it's designed, there is no limit for the size or shape of the quilt you use with this frame.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have to baste your quilt before attaching to the hoop?
Yes. The three layers of your quilt (top, batting, and backing) have to be layered flat together and pinned across the top and bottom edges. The middle of the quilt does not need to be pinned like traditional quilt basting for quilting on a home machine, but the layers of the quilt do need to be evenly spread out and flat.
Please keep this in mind if space is a serious issue for you. You will still need the space to arrange the three layers of your quilt flat on a table or the floor, find the midpoints, and pin across the top and bottom edges of the batting and quilt top.
If you do not have the space or ability to spread the layers of your quilt flat, a better frame choice will be the Continuum Quilting Frame which allows you to baste the quilt directly on the frame.
I'm unable to stand for long periods of time. Is this the quilting frame for me?
So long as you have a low table to set up your Cutie Frame! Remember, this frame doesn't come with legs so you'll need to have a table you can comfortably sit at and quilt with this frame.
Keep in mind quilting is still a physical activity. You must stand in order to properly baste the layers of the quilt and position it properly over the frame. You will also need to be able to lift the quilt, set it on a table or the floor, and roll it up evenly to reach a new area to quilt.
If your goal is quilting king sized quilts on this Cutie Frame, please understand that is a physical activity no matter how your machine is set up, no matter what style of frame you are working on.
