My dear hubby is going to get me either a new hand quilting frame or a new
hoop (floor model) for Xmas. It's up to me to decide which one I want, there in lies my dilema. I've only quilted on a hoop, never on a frame. I would like a new frame, but am afraid I may not be able to fully utilize it's qualities, I can only quilt towards me, Iv'e never learned any other direction. With the hoop, I can turn it 360 degrees. Any advice anyone can give wuold be greatly appreciated to help me decide. I'm really torn about what to do.

I have a stand alone hoop. It can be turned in any direction and handles a full size quilt. It is the Grace Hoop squared. Really flexible.
