I have not seen the Bailey Home Quilter in person. Can one quilt free motion with it without a quilt frame. In other words, the sewer is moving the quilt under the needle instead of moving the machine on a frame held quilt.
I am interested in the larger throat/harp space as well as the superior sewing I read about on the blogs.
Thank you

I never even heard of Baily Home Quilter's until seeing your thread-- but I think you would be interested to see this:

I have a Bailey quilting machine. It is loaded on a homemade quilting frame. Dad made it from a variety of things including a rowing machine. Don't ask. I have a roll of batting loaded on one pole and the top and bottom of the quilt load on the other poles.
I really like the machine. I have had very good luck with it. I have quilted many quilts on it. It is the original throat size of 13 inches.
I use inexpensive Coats and Clark thread as recommended. I have also used nice quilting threads and had very good luck.
I checked the website and saw the new table. That looks really handy too. It has been an affordable way for me to quilt my quilts with a long arm and not have to send them out to be quilted.

This is terrific! This topic should probably be moved to the Quilting Corner though! :)

Well this photo answers my question. I assume one would need to devise some tables level with the setup to provide support for the quilt while one moved their quilt for free motion quilting.
I was told today that one had to use it with a frame !!

thanks
