DIY Quilting Frames

Learn how to build inexpensive quilting frames with this easy step-by-step guide. Complete with a cut list and instructions you can make your own quilt frames in an afternoon.

This is the last part of my little mini series on making blankets.  I first showed you how I tie blankets and then how I bind the blankets.

Today I'll share how I made my own homemade own quilting frames. Now, before we start, let me tell you that I made these about two years ago. I'm hoping I can remember well enough how I made them to give you clear instructions. Make sure to ask me if something doesn't make sense. If you are on a budget, and would like some inexpensive quilting frames, then this is for you.

My Favorite Cake Recipes

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. I don't really like most cake. Yep, that's right! I said it. Cake is not really my thing.

Here's the thing. Most cakes that are served at birthdays or large gatherings are dry, crumbly and the only part that's good is the frosting. And even the frosting fails me sometimes.

Now you may be wondering, why do you have a page all about cake then? There are a few exceptions to my "I don't like cake" statement. The cakes that I do like are not the typical birthday-type cake.

How to Make a 'Tie Quilt' Blanket

When we were kids, it seemed that my mom always had a quilt on the quilt frame. It was so fun to lay underneath and watch it be completed. There is just something special about a handmade quilt. I think it's because so much time and love are put into each one.

I've got the love, but I don't have the time. The solution: A tie quilt or blanket. You tie them with yarn instead of quilting them so they are super quick. I made a few of these back in January and one more last week.

I'm sure you've all seen tie blankets and probably even made a few yourself. But in case you haven't, I've got a little mini series for you. I'll be covering how to tie a blanket, how to bind a blanket and how to make your own quilt frames.

I taught my 8 year old son how to tie these and he loved it. If he can do it, then so can you!
