Leah's Advice on Picking Your Frame
It can be tough to pick the right quilting frame, especially when you're just starting out frame quilting. My advice is to invest in your growth as a quilter: the Evolution Elite allows you to start small and expand as your space and quilting skills grow.
I began happily with an 8 foot frame. Within 2 years, I rearranged my longarm room to expand to a 10 foot frame. Then when our basement flooded, I seized the opportunity to tear out a wall and fit a 12 foot frame. You may not desire a full sized frame right now... but in a few years king sized quilts might be your thing - and a 12 foot frame is the easiest and fastest way to quilt a king!
Additional Elite Frame Accessories
Learn more about the different accessories you can add to your Evolution Elite Frame. Add these accessories above to create your dream frame!
2-Foot Extension - You can expand your frame anytime and boost your 8 foot to 10 feet, or 10 foot to 12 feet. The maximum length of a Evolution Elite frame is 12 feet.
Idler Rail - Reduce the time you spend fiddling with the frame between advances! This adds an additional back rail to your frame and allows the bulk of the quilt to build up in the arm of the machine, rather than against your machine bed. This rail will reduce your vertical quilting space by 1-2 inches, but the time saved with each advance is worth it!
Batting Rail - Store extra batting or backing fabric on this handy rail mounted to the front of your frame.
Note - The Idler and Batting rails are interchangeable on the Evolution Elite Frame.
Let Your Frame Evolve with Your Quilting Skills
If the size or cost of the Evolution Elite Frame is beyond you at this time, consider beginning at the beginning with the Evolution Hoop Frame.
This 5-foot frame has a much smaller footprint and is more affordable to beginning quilters. But unlike the Q-Zone Hoop Frame, the Evolution Hoop can be upgraded and expanded to become an Evolution Elite.
