Look how much of the frame this quilt takes up!!! This is the largest one I have done so far. I don't remember the measurements. I do know that I used all of my snap-on leaders but two! Whew... glad I have a little breathing room.
If you're wondering what leader grips are... THEY ARE WONDERFUL!!! They making loading the quilt so easy! No pins... no zippers... I probably wouldn't have bought them, but the guy that sold me the longarm said that he was throwing in on my package because I would be easier for him to teach me how to load the quilt! Cool, huh? Here's a YouTube video of leader grips. I'm not sure if this is the brand that I have or not. The Nolting dealer installed mine for me by sewing them in.
