I have not been hand quilting lately, but I have several tops that are begging for it. BettyBoop, thanks for the nudge. The hoop I bought several years ago is still in the shrink wrap.. not sure of the brand. It supposedly swivels. I also bought a little bent piece of metal to use under the quilt. From what I remember, you keep the top really loose and manipulate the quilt over a stationery needle. My 365 is taking up so much time, I am neglecting this... Time to get on it!
