Looking for an attractive way to show off your favorite quilt? This easy-to-build, country style quilt rack will make a handsome display, whether you plan to keep it yourself or give it to a quilter you know.
Quilts deserve the same care and attention that valuable works of art do, and it takes a bit of effort to preserve these treasured items. Proper display and storing of your treasured quilts will ensure that friends and family will be able to enjoy their history and beauty for years to come.
This floor-standing quilt rack is ideal for a quilt that you intend to use or move around frequently. It uses display bars to evenly distribute the weight of the quilt. Since it is portable, you can easily move your quilt from room to room to keep it away from high-traffic areas. This particular unit measures 31.5 inches (0.8 m) tall, 28 inches (0.7 m) wide and 21 inches (0.5 m) deep.
Here's a tip: Any light source - sunlight or artificial - is a big enemy of quilts. Light can cause fading and over-drying, so keep your quilt away from windows or highly lit areas. Also, keep your quilt away from heating air ducts or radiators.
