I've Been Framed!

Yep! You heard correctly.... I've been framed........ Allow me to introduce the culprit!

Frame Profile: Forty-five inches long; thirty-two inches tall; and eighteen inches wide

This wonderful quilting frame was lovely made by a friend who has since passed away.

He heard some of us quilters talking one day, years ago, about hand quilting and the woos of finding a good frame. His wife explained how important height and adjustability would be to a quilter and the weight of a frame would need to be light and easy to move and/or store in the home.

He quietly went back to his workshop and drafted several frames before coming up with a workable one that would fit a quilter's needs for the home.

I can just imagine his workshop, the sawdust, the sounds of the saw,  drill and router..... oh I've been around carpenters, if you're wondering (great-uncle was carpenter).

Hinges and wing screws aid in adjusting the tilt of frame.

This frame tilts for ease of quilting and as you can see is spring tension adjustable so that the quilt does not fit to tightly in the frame.

Groove where inner frame fits.

Springs on both ends of the inner frame holds the quilt in place.

Frame can be tilted downward or remain upright.

Needless to say I love this frame.  Only a couple of us were able to purchase the frames before the builder passed away but each time I use it, I just smile and remember how wonderful he was.
