Finished a quilt rack for my son Ben just in time for Christmas. He inherited some of my mom’s quilts after she passed away and he found some he really liked and wanted a way to display them. This is the result with one of our quilts that mom made for us as an example of her handiwork. All hand stitched.

Walnut from BIL’s tree, all through-tenons with shellac then polyurethane over that. I was pleased but most of all, so was Ben.

I really like this design and you did a fine job on the build.

I sent a picture of this to my mother. Her first words were, how tall is it? She noted that it needs to be rather tall to see all the quilts. She likes it too.

Could you tell us what the dimensions are?
