HQ Sixteen on a Phoenix Frame for Sale!!

Hi everyone,

The HQ Sixteen is now sold!!!


I’m upgrading to the HQ Avante! I’m very excited to get this new machine, but I need to sell my HQ Sixteen because I don’t have room for both.

The HQ Sixteen has been such a great machine to learn free-motion quilting. I’ve only used her for personal projects so very light use. If you’re in the Portland, Oregon area, I’m selling my machine and frame for $3500.

If interested, please let me know! The buyer needs to be able to pick up the frame and do your own assembly.

I’m including the following items:

  • HQ Sixteen with stitch regular on a 12′ steel Phoenix frame that we modified to fit the machine specifically.
  • The frame also comes with a separate carriage that fits the TinLizzie 18.
  • Separate bobbin winder.
  • Fourth rail for batting (does not include by batting roll as shown in the pictures)
  • 2 clamps.
  • Cloth leaders.
  • All product manuals for the HQ and the Phoenix frame

Forest and Lake Finished Art Quilt!

Hi everyone!

After just over a year, I finished the binding on this epic foundation paper pieced quilt this week! This quilt combines the Forest art quilt and the Lake art quilt together by Quilt Art Designs.

For binding, I selected a fabric called Tick Tock Stripe in Mint from Tula Pink’s new line, Chipper. The blues, greens, red, and brown stripes accent the colors in my art quilt pretty well.

I did heavy custom quilting using my HandiQuilter 16 and a combination of Aurifil and Superior threads. The quilting alone took about 8 hours. I lost track of the time it took for the paper piecing!

The backing is also by Tula Pink from her Free Fall 108-inch wide collection in Sky.

Let’s take a look at the completed quilt! Thanks to my husband and son who are such wonderful photography assistants! We took these pictures today in slightly overcast weather in the Columbia River Gorge and Multnomah Falls.

I love this finished quilt! It is the most ambitious paper-piecing project that I have done thus far. Thanks so much to Janeen from Quilt Art Designs for her beautifully detailed patterns. Thanks to everyone who encouraged me throughout the past year as I worked on this quilt, section by section.
