    Thanks to your wonderful tutorial, I was able to get my quilt loaded on my new frame! I'm a visual person, so seeing yours was more helpful than reading the instructions that came with mine! LOL

    The rollers that came with mine only had a useable space of 87.5", so I bought new ratchet wheels and end caps and DH made new rollers from metal electrical conduit (the same material the rollers that came with it were made from).

    The new rollers (shown in the picture here) have a useable space of 110"!!!! That will give you an idea of how long this one is! The entire frame is 10' long (that is including the legs).

    Here are the steps I have taken so far. You will notice that the frame has 3 poles,the back one and the middle one, the gears run to the back. the front one, the gears run to the front.
    I just noticed one difference...
    the instructions for my frame said to roll the batting and TOP together on the back roller...which I did.
    I see that you roll your batting and BACKING together.

    Minor detail...but other than that...
    it looks the same and I'm LOVING quilting on it! It is high enough so I don't have to hunch over any...and it tilts to just the right angle...whatever that angle is for you! :)

    Thanks again for the wonderful tute!

    Thanks for the step by step process. It's a good review for me to set up my quilt on my frame. It's always good for a refresher . :-D

    Hi guys
    I have been away for awhile, life got in the way. But i am back, :):) I took some time off from quilting, but last week my fingers started itching to pick up needle, and so i am back at frame, quilting this one. I am half way now. I thought i would do a tute on hand quilting in a frame if anyone wants me to. Wow, i have missed this place and all of u!!!!

    Do you use the stencils with a regular machine? I wonderd if you trace them on and then stitch around the marks?
