My sister’s boyfriend asked me to design and make a wall-mounted quilt hanger, for a family heirloom quilt.

I reviewed several alternative existing designs, and many of them with a horizontal board on top for a shelf.

Because this quilt hanger will be mounted fairly high in elevation, we choose a simple design with no top shelf.

I found some oak finials at Rockler to dress up the ends. The finials came with a 1/2” male dowel, which I sanded off flush. I then carefully drilled a 1/4” hole in each finial to accept a short piece of dowel. One finial is removable using a slip fit, to install the quilt, or remove it.

The design for this quilt bracket is on Google’s 3D warehouse. I shared it in case other people want to use it.

To see all of my trials & tribulations on this project, see my web site.
