I started a quilt for our DS and his future bride 12 years ago.  I was a novice, and well, anyway.  I am a hand quilter and put it on an older big quilt frame to quilt.  Last year for Christmas I got an EZ quilt frame.  Wondering, do I move it to the "nicer" quilt frame or leave it on the other one.  If I do move it, do I re-pin it too?  

Thanks for any help!

I think so.  I have it about 1/3 or so quilted . . .

I have the z44 grace frame and it is similar to the EZ frame ...you should not have to pin it, they are both no baste frames. I would put the already quilted side on first...roll it to that side then put the other side onto the correct rails, roll to that side then roll again back to the already done side.
