I saw the Easy Quilter II and that's what got me thinking... looks easy enough, so I thought of the garden poles first. They worked well, the metal poles are much better!

I'm thinking of buying the plans on ebay and asking my bf to make it for me since he's handy with tools.
I bought the plans for Richards frame... gave them to my brother, who said no problem...well its a year later and .... I made my own. LOL

Thanks! It was really hard to tell what type of clamps were used to hold the batting bar to the table. I suppose it was the way the picture was...or my eyes ;) Anyway, the change you made seems like it ought to work, maybe even easier.

I'm thinking I could take my top bar, since I float the majority of quilts, and use that to load my batting on and mount it below my backing bar on my frame. However, I'm afraid of it warping some, due to the weight of a whole roll of batting (which is what I want to store), so I'm now thinking of using fence poles as I think they come in 6-8' lengths, are cheap, can be joined, and sure won't sway over time. Anyway...just thinking at this point.

You did a great job! I know they are sure fun to use! I enjoyed looking at the webshots as well.

Thanks for your reply,

But I have a question - what is that that is holding your batting bar on? Is it a special form of clamp? I am sure it's something simple that I'm just not recognizing...but it's really interesting!

Great job!

I float most of my tops as well. I just let the batting hand off the machine.

I have using if for about a year now. What do you all think?

Looks awesome. Can I ask what are garden poles? Are there any bigger pictures that I can see clearer? Looks like an awesome setup.

I think the poles were PVC, normally used for irrigation in the garden. Please note that the original post is 14 years old.

If it works, that's great. I like the quilt you currently have on it.
