Do any of you have a quilt frame made from a Hinterberg Design Easy Build Quilt Frame Kit. My DH and FIL made me one a number of years ago and I was wondering about the poles. They are made of 1 1/4” conduit as directed in the instructions. However, they are heavy and hard to turn. Has any body made them out of some other material? I was thinking about pvc pipe, but my DH says it may not be strong enough when it's as long as the conduit. Any suggestions????
