Ok, I wasn’t going to post this, but since I haven’t posted anything in so long I decided to. This was a fun project that will see a fair share of use, so it’s a win-win. My wife has wanted one of these for a LONG time and I finally got around to doing it.

The 3 bars are used to add tension to the top, batting, and the backing while you quilt the three together.

I don’t know why you wouldn’t post it, it’s pretty cool (though I would’ve liked a few more pictures). With the Mrs. thinking about getting into quilting, it’s nice to see a project that would be useful for her.

My wife would not know what to do with one of these (nor would I) but my MIL would love one. When we moved her into her current house last year she had one that was made out of 2 2×4s.

This is a masterpiece compared to that one. She would be ecstatic over something like this.

Thanks for the post. I may have to consider something like this for her (after all she still is a wonderful cook).

Grovemadman posted a niddy-noddy, a device used by yarn spinners and seemed to have a ready market amongst dedicated spinners. I imagine that an enterprising jock of whatever gender could find themselves in a rather profitable niche market if they connected with the quilt folk in making these. Hmmm.

Hi, I am a quilting wife. I would love to have a quilt loom like the one you have built. Is there anyway you would pass on the plans for this project or sale the plans. My husband said he would build me one if I could get the plans for it. I have looked all over the internet and I cant find a good quilting loom. Yours is the first I have seen. Sincerely, quilting wife
