I have been making some quilt ladders to support my wife’s long arm quilting business (www.cathyfarrisquilts.com). The quilt ladder can be free-standing when used with a back support so that it resembles a step ladder (pix 1 & 2) or can be just leaned against the wall (pix 3 & 4). I have also been experimenting with a screen that will hold quilts (pix 5). The last picture shows how it is assembled using threaded inserts in the ends of “rungs” and connector bolts that go through the sides into the rungs. This makes it easy to take apart for shipping or storage. The wood in the pictures is red oak, stained and finished with shellac. The design was inspired by a project in Wood Magazine – October 2008.

That is a nice quilt rack/display. You did a good job on this. What is the height/width dimensions of this if you dont mind me asking? Welcom to L.J.’s also.

PS—the scroll sawn ribbon on the gift box you posted earlier is fabulous. A very nice gift!
