I have been quilting 2 hours this morning. Feel like I am quilting a small table runner instead of a full size quilt! No shoulder, neck or back pain. I cannot stop smiling, having so much fun!

Even with a nice large table set up I have a terrible problem with drag. Thank you for posting about this Kathy! I love the homemade solutions too.

What a great quilting tool. I looked at it and thought to myself, I can make one. I have all of the PVC pipe and fittings but not the suspenders and clamps. Then decided that it would be so much easier to purchase one. Which I am going to do. Now I can no longer tell myself, "NO MORE BIG QUILTS". BTW the link did not work for me so here is the link to try http://www.jennoop.com/quilt-suspenders.html .

Caroline,


Caroline, you are going to love this system! I have been quilting since 11:00 am this morning. Just turned my machine off and will resume tomorrow. I feel fantastic, no neck, back or shoulder pain!!!

I saw on a blog where a lady had used a dog grooming arm. Katiesquiltingcorner.com dated May 29, 2014. These clamp to the table but I think the Jennoop system would be easier to adjust where you need the clamps to be. Just my opinion. Think I will show the Jennoop system to my dh and see how sturdy he thinks it is.

I am finishing sewing the binding to a queen sized quil. I was thinking that perhaps the Jennoop system might be used to support the weight of the quilt while sewing the binding. Sure hate "wrastling" as I sew. Placed my order.

If the PVC pipe is not glued into the "L" fitting one could perhaps use a longer piece of PVC. Depending on the length one may need a support rod of some sort, preferably metal, as PVC pipe flexes depending on diameter and length.
