My wife started collecting quilts and wanted to display them. We put are heads together and came up with this design.

I cut the large cove molding using a shop made angled parallell jig on the table saw. There is a groove for the plate rail on top. I made this about 20 yrs. ago. so it’s a little worse for wear. My wife changes the quilt out 2 or 3 times year. She displays a chritsmas quilt and other seasonal quilts during the year.

Terrific way to show off a quilt and top them off with decorative china. Looks very pretty, decorative as well as serving a purpose, nice and tidy!
