    This is my homemade quilt frame. Saving until I can get a really good one….I used garden rods for poles and lots of claps to hold the “quilt rods” in place. Used a six foot foldable table, shelving hangers for tracks and bought a Grace frame carriage upgrade. Great for baby quilts and laps quilts. Total cost…. Less than $200. I have using if for about a year now. What do you all think?

    A lot more creative than I would have been able to come up with! I need a solution myself and have been looking around.

    I was going to buy plans online to make a really nice frame but I didn't know anyone talented enough to make it. You did a great job making it!

    Sweet! What a great way to save $$$$ and you made it yourself!!! Great job :-)

    I'm thinking of buying the plans on ebay and asking my bf to make it for me since he's handy with tools.

    That's so cool! How talented you are to have figured out a way to do that...and it works!

    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!

    They were just reg. clamps. I have changed things a bit....
    See the new pics or checkout my webshots page with changes to my homemade frame.
