Well, duh! I have my target (9mm) stands made from PVC, but never thought of using it to suspend the weight of my Q's. Now that I've smacked my forehead, I'm making another shopping list. You've inspired a bunch of us to get busy. Good onya.

I mentioned this setup to hubby and I think he is going to make me one. He made the most wonderful movable above ground sprinkler system for me long ago with pvc when we rented a house. I think he would be fast at making this for me if I could just figure out a better placement for my sewing desk. It backs up to two walls in a corner now and this would not work. I need to get my thinking cap on!

I ordered the Jennoops too but seeing these pictures I see how easy it would be to make a few changes on the original--I like the idea of a rod to the left to hold the side quilt--I don't like the frame behind the table or to the right--I want my table against the wall. I also like the clamps sewn to the end of the straps. The rings might be nice but not sure I'd want something that slid around easily. Things to think about.

You are a genius. Did you glue it or is it so that you can take it down?
Just started today quilting my 2nd ever quilt to make. Decided to quilt it on the sewing machine instead of by hand. This would be perfect if only I had room for it. Right now I am set up in the Great Room on a table with chairs around. Your idea is terrific and if I keep going on this, I will have to get some pvc.
