Default holder for quilts while quilting on them

I have seen posts of where people have made their own holders for supporting quilts while they quilt them on their home machines. I haven't a clue how to search for those posts. My daughter is planning on making something like that and needs help to make hers stable. Would someone help me find those posts for her? Thank you in advance this board is the best!!!

Patsy Thompson sells her system on her site, you might get some ideas from hers.

This website offers plans for building your own domestic sewing machine quilting frame. They also sell precut parts and hardware for building a frame:

A folding table behind the machine and/or on the left side works well, too.

I have the Jennloop System that I no longer use because of my Janome on a Grace quilting frame. Thinking I should sell it to someone who can get some use out of it. Thanks for reminding me of it!!

I put dog groomer arms on the back of my sewing table to hold up the quilt. It was alot cheaper and smaller than the elaborate frames that are built around the machine.
