My son does wood working, so I want him to make me a Quilt Rack. I want something different, just don't know what yet. I have looked on the Internet at different types. I want one with some charm and style, the fact he will make it will make it Oh so special, but he needs ideas. So I am asking all you Quilters? Do you have A Quilt Rack? Can I see pics?  Thanks to anyone who will share with me!

I don't have a quilt rack, but would love to see what he comes up with.  I would love to have one, but I don't really like the commercial ones I have seen.  I would like one that was really wide so that the quilts don't have to be folded so small to drape better.

My husband made me a quilt hanger so that I can hang full size quilts on the wall.  It's basically a wooden box mounted over a long, supported rod.  I can either drape them over the box, over the rod, or hang them from the rod with hooks.  I only use the hooks for the very lightest items and I don't leave them hanging on the hooks very long because the alligator clips have teeth.  I have put little pieces of fabric between the teeth and my quilts but I tend to drape them over the rod instead because of my fear of pinholes from the alligator teeth. ouch.

I always like the quilt racks that look like a ladder, you can drape several quilts over the rungs and you can see a good chunk of each quilt. Search Google images for  "ladder quilt rack" , or just "quilt rack" to get an idea of all the kinds out there.

I've been holding on to this picture for a while.  I'll know I'm a real quilter when I have to ask DH to build this for me.

I just showed the picture to DH and he looked at our walls and wondered where we would hang it.  I told him we didn't need one quite that big. Love the idea, though.

WOW! Now that is a quilt rack. I'll throw out my couch if my son wants to make one of those for me, LOL! I have a small free standing one that I paid $5 for at a garage sale. I have it in my sewing room with things I'm working on hanging on it. When I pressed and starched all the strips for MQ9 I hung them on it. It isn't pretty, but it is handy.If I ever finish all my UFOs I could use one of these gian ones.

Good morning!!  Tried to post this yesterday but unable to connect while we are traveling. Found this quilt tech in an old antique store this week and took a pic for husband to maybe make. I like the concept of the tiered look. Haven't seen one like it before. Took a few pics but the lady wouldn't allow me to take the quilts off to get a better pic. Esp since I wasn't buying!

And probably with his own twist.  Looking at it all it is, is those wooden curtain rods done up into 4 rows.  What you could do is purchase as many rods as you need and in the size that would fit your wall and you'll have a very inexpensive quilt rack.  If you buy them unfinished you could stain, paint or varnish them any way you'd like and they would be less expensive.  Thanks for the picture, now I'll have to look around and see where I can hang one.

And YOU would have enough quilts to hang on it!

But I don't have a wall in my house that would be big enough to hang it.  I can't even find a wall big enough for a design wall, LOL.
