I have a (dear and fantastic) wife that is a fanatic quilter. And just like me and some of you, she is going back to doing some work the old way. We start using more our hand tools, saws, hand planes, etc. My wife is looking to do some hand stitch quilting. There are some different ways to mount the quilt to do this. One way is to hang a frame from the ceiling. This seem a little destructive to the house and you are stuck in one spot. The other problem is that we have ceiling lights that would be covered up by the quilt if we were to raise it up to get it out of the way.
The frame needs to be able to hold a full size king quilt, so the total width needs to be about 110”.
Thanks for help and input. It’s all about keeping these quilters quilting, cutting up beautiful yards of fabric into small pieces so that they can sew it all back together again.
