I designed and built this quit rack for my cousin a few years ago. I looked for design inspiration on the net and looked at many different designs. I found little inspiration from commercial designs and had a vision of what I wanted. I came up with this somewhat unusual curved frame and panel design. The frame is joined with mortice and loose tenon and the panel is curly maple milled to 1/4”.

I understood these are to showcase the quilt. It would take a pretty amazing quilt to peel my eyes off of that…

Beautiful piece. I like the design and use of the natural wood contrasts. They work very well together.
