SALE! Cutie Quilting Frame - Collapses for Easy Storage
Do you need a tiny quilt frame that can be put away? The Cutie is for you!
The Cutie Frame is the only frame designed to work with home machines and longarms and take up the smallest space possible in your home.
This Cutie Frame comes with:
- Collapsible frame to hoop your quilt
One of the #1 requests from quilters about our Hoop Frames is - can it collapse?
This was the goal 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.
The 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. Here is a frame you can pull out when you need it, move your machine in place, and quilt your project quickly. You could even take your Cutie on vacation!

Cutie Frame Additional Accessories
Cutie Frames have lots of additional accessories you can add for more quilting fun! Choose from the following accessories to get the most from your frame:
Hoop Frame Leader Cloth - This pack of leader cloth includes top, bottom and side pieces to help you load your Cutie Frame quicker and roll the quilt faster too. This also reduces the amount of backing fabric you’ll need for every quilt you make!
Bungee Cords - this set of 4 bungee cords are designed to add side tension to your quilt. This is especially useful when quilting along the edges of your quilts or on narrow projects.
Channel Locks - These are special locks that go on the carriage wheels that lock the machine so it can only roll horizontal or vertical. This is super useful especially when quilting with pantographs.
Frame Legs - Don't have a good table to fit your Cutie? You can add legs to your frame with this leg kit!
Luminess Light Bar - If you're struggling to see your stitches, this lightbar will definitely help. The 5 foot width can fit around a table or desk and perfectly illuminate your quilting or crafting space.
Speed Controller - If your foot pedal cord is less than 4 feet long, you may have challenges quilting with that machine on your Cutie. Check and see if your machine is on the compatibility list for our Speed Controller!
Sure Stitch Regulator - If you'd like to take the practice (and hair pulling) out of learning how to keep your stitches a consistent size, this Sure Stitch Regulator is for you! Make sure your machine is on the compatibility list before ordering.

Do you have more questions about the Cutie? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions:
What machines are compatible?
The Cutie can fit any home sewing/quilting machine and our Q'nique 16 longarms and Qnique 19X Elite longarm machine.
For the most quilting happiness, it is recommended that your home sewing machine has at least a 7 inch harp space. This will give you enough space to quilt creative designs on this frame.
What is the biggest quilt you can quilt on this frame?
No limit! Just like the Q-Zone Hoop Frame and Evolution Hoop Frame, 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.
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 as shown in the video above. 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. I do this by pinning on a wall!
If you do not have the ability to spread the layers of your quilt flat, a better frame choice will be the Continuum II Quilting Frame or Evolution Elite Frame which allows you to baste the quilt directly on the frame.
How much work will it be to master quilting on this frame?
This really depends on your current quilting skill level. If you have no experience with free motion quilting and plan to use a home sewing machine with no stitch regulator, you will need to practice in order to find the right speed / movement to quilt pretty stitches.
This is the normal practice and troubleshooting process for free motion quilting on a stationary home machine. Quilting on a Cutie changes the movement (machine moving over the quilt instead of quilt moving under the needle), but you will still need time, patience and practice to create consistent sized stitches and pretty designs.
