Hello All,

I made this quilt rack for my mom, who is a quilting machine. It’s made of pine, and the inlay is red cedar. I finished it with BLO and blonde shellac. This was a fairly simple and fun project.

this is a great idea… hmmm
My Mom, also, is a quilting machine … she made about 8 quilts between Sept and Xmas last year.
This would make a nice display for her “latest”. She lives in a trailer home now so I’m thinking that this would double as a knick-nac shelf when she’s not showing off a quilt or it could be taken off the wall when not in use..
the possibilities!!!

I definitely like the “hooked” rods idea. The one I just finished up for my wife is just a plain-jane ol’ straight rod – I can see where your design would be a bit more secure. I’ll have to keep that in mind. Thanks for posting!

Thanks hops. My rods where super easy to make. I used a forsner bit in the drill press to make centered holes in a 3 1/2 wide board. Then I just ripped 1” strips off of each side. Took about five minutes.

Great Idea. Well-made and nicely finished! Might see if the boss wants on of these instead of a quilt ladder.
Anybody have plans for one of those?

Hi Larry,

Thanks for bringing this one out of the archives. The quilting rack looks good and the inlay adds visual interest to the project. Nice photography too.

Thanks for the post.

i just did a bunch of sketches in the ol’ notebook for a hanging quilt rack—and here it is. nice work. looks an awful lot like what i’ve sketched out. it’s a great help to see it in wood while so far i’ve only got it on paper. so, thank you, larry. time to rummage through my scrap! happy new year…
