Topic tags/keywords: question

Attached are pictures of parts of a 100 year old quilt frame. I have made replacement parts that I know were missing or cracked.
What I would like to know is does anyone know what additional parts are missing, such as what covers the span of the 2 legs?
Thank you,

Hard to tell from the photo what those parts are.

Are you sure there WERE legs? Many old quilt frames that my grandmother and her cronies used were hung from the ceilings in basements (from what I remember in the 50’s).

Thank you for the reply. I am pretty sure they are legs as there were buttons on the bottom for the floors.
There were also 3 sets of wood 8’, 6’ & 4’ that had material on them
