    I found this at a garage sale yesterday. The older man said he had made it for his wife who has now passed away. Anyone quilt on something like this? I got it for $20. I put a small quilt on it and it seems pretty comfortable to use.

    Never seen anything like it but it seems very sturdy and well made. If it works and its comfortable to use then its a bargain.

    That looks like a wonderful find! And since he made it for his wife...you know there's a LOT of love in it! I'm sure it made his heart glad to know that it will be used by someone who loves quilting like his wife did.

    I think this frame is great. Portable, not huge and looks sturdy.

    It's a lightweight velcro with a small belt buckle and holes in it like a belt.

    At first I thought it was a rug hooking frame! It looks great...if you ever decide to sell it I would buy it from you for rug hooking!

    I have one my husband made from an oval hoop. The base if very similar to the one pictured. I LOVE it! Being able to adjust the slant of the frame is great. I can do any size quilt on mine. I hope you like yours :D
