For those who think you can't quilt a 97½" quilt on a normal sized domestic machine, you can and here's the proof.
The batting is Hobbs wool. Half the quilt in in the harp of the machine. Can you see some of it is above my right hand on the right? Click on the photo to enlarge. When I want to do the other side of the quilt, I shall turn it upside down.
The quilt is 'puddled' round the needle so when I move it, there is no drag. The weight of the left hand side of the quilt is supported by an old dining table to my left. (I had a piece of glass cut to fit so the quilts will glide over it)
Sorry the photo is a little blurred, DH took the photo. Love him but he's no photographer....
