My Wife want's me to build a quilting frame, the only specification is it has to be 96" long. She provided some pictures. I did the usual search for plans and came up dry, So I looked for a kit version and didn't see any that fit her speciation's.  Help with links or plans are appreciated.

Check some of the quilting sites. I've seen some plans for frames but I can't remember where.  Try Mother Earth News' web site too. Good Luck, Rick

Just copy what you have in the first picture. Get some wooden closet rods, 2x4s and carriage bolts. My mom used one like that and made dozens of patchwork quilts. I still use one on my bed forty years later. You don't need the ratcheting mechanism.

8' is a big span to keep tight and not bow the rods. Is she planning on making quilts eight feet wide? Or eight feet long? I can't imagine that she needs one eight feet wide, but she's a woman and they get what they want.
