Plans for simple old time quilt frame
1" x 2" straight boards at least 7 feet long
(This really depends on the size quilt you are making.)
1" x 4" boards at least 6 feet long
Cut the 1" x 2" boards to the correct length for the quilt you are making.
Take a strip of Muslin (about 2.5 inches wide) and into a loop about 1.25 inches wide. Either staple or tack this strip to the frames. This strip will be used to attach the quilt back to the frame.
Next cut the 1" x 4" boards into pieces as shown in diagram. This can be done with a power saw or a hand saw.
Assemble the stand as shown in the diagram below.
The frames are held together with the "C" clamps
