Quilt Racks are a fantastic way to display your quilts with pride. There is no reason why you should put your quilts away in the cupboard when you aren’t using them if you can use them to create a homely feel to any room. Quilt racks come in many different shapes, sizes, forms and colors.
The typical quilt rack is a stand-alone rack with either two or three rods to display two or three quilts. Generally they are made out of wood (stained or natural) or wrought iron. The most popular woods are pine, oak and cherry, although walnut and other woods are also available. All types are perfect for displaying an heirloom quilt.
It doesn’t matter if you are a novice, a quilting enthusiast or inherited one from a loved one, your quilting rack is the perfect way to display all your hard work and love that went into your quilt.
Whilst the most popular quilt racks are quilt stands, wall hung racks are also popular. These types of racks are fantastic because it means the floor space underneath them is free and can give a room a larger feel. It also means if you hang your quilt rack quite high, that more of your beautiful quilt will be on display. Generally wall hung quilt racks will have a shelf above the rail, to display other little goodies you have in your house and to keep dust off your heirloom.
