    Hi,
    I am working on the old fashioned quilting frame that hangs from the ceiling. I just started the stitching. I'd like to ask some questions to anyone that works like this. I'll attach a picture of it. No laughing please! :D

    I recall, as a little girl, my Mother usinf a similar rig but it set on the backs of chairs rather than hanging from the ceiling. It would fill most of the living room.Do you have hooks in the ceiling? I also recall mom having a frame that had sharp tacks or brads that would hold the quilt in place. She done a lot of tying of quilts.

    I believe that you start at the outside and as you are done quilting the outer edge, you roll the board and the quilt rolls around the board. That brings the next area to be quilted close to the outside.

    I was browsing the internet tonight and happened to find the following website on how to make a PVC quilt frame, light weight and easily movable. Just thought I would share with you.

    Oh, the boards looked like they were attached to me. If that's the case wouldn't it be too much bulk to reach over after a while or am I overthinking this?
