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.

This is such a great idea for quilting larger quilts on a domestic machine. I also like the fact that it can be easily dismantle and that it is not that expensive ..... and it actually works!!! Love it and thanks for the posting.

Thanks. I showed the picture to DH and that started his thinking wheels to make one. Since I don't have the space I told him not to proceed, but now that I know it doesn't have to be glued!!! New story.
DH used to install pvc pipe in his line of work so his mind is glued (pun intended) to how he did it then. Super idea. Many blessings to the QBoard ladies.

I have been trying to use the cage for everything I do on machine. Well some things are not as easy as others. Have had all kinds of tents, etc. but will keep trying. I know it works on embroidery, but I want it all. Thanks for all the comments. Kate

Hi Jim's Gem, I don't know why you couldn't make it work. I left mine large may need to shorten as I use it more, but good now. I have two desk that may need it one day. Thanks for looking. Kate

This is a brilliant idea. I just looked at the Jennoop's website and noticed that one has a single overhead bar with just two clamps. I'm curious what decided you on a U-shaped device with three overhead bars and more clamps? Do you feel you get better control that way than if you only used two clamps? At any rate, kudos for a job well done.
