Hi Folks,

Just wanted to see if anyone hand quilts without a hoop? I feel like I spend most of the time when I'm quilting adjusting and re-adjusting the hoop. I'm hand quilting my first queen-size quilt (so far only done crib quilts by hand), and I'm going hoopless.... it's actually pretty easy! My stiches are very slightly longer than by hoop quilting, but it's so easy to do. Anyone else tried it?

I always hand quilt hoopless without any problems. . .  but then I only hand quilt my small quilts.  I machine quilt anything larger than a small wall hanging.

I always quilt without a hoop.  I just can't get the feel of it with a hoop.  I hand baste the quilt about every six inches and I never have a problem.  I did a king size completely by hand and it turned out great!

I mostly machine quilt these days, but when I hand quilt I do so without a hoop. With my first quilt, I was slavishly following Internet instructions, which said to use a hoop, but I was spending most of my time moving the hoop and I got sick of it, so I ditched it. I haven't had any problems and have done a couple of twin- and queen-size quilts that way.
