Default quilt rack

My wife asked me to make three quilt display racks. the rack is 23 in inside, her quilts when done will be 22 in.

I went for something different, I like how it came out.

Looks good David. Your doing a good job on those. Thanks for posting the picures of the build, that helps everyone visualize how to do it.
Is this your own design or did you see it somewhere?

I'm always amazed at the creativity other folks seem to have. You take a simple quilt rack and turn it into a work of art! Well done and thanks for sharing.

Very nice David. My wife too is a quilting addict so I feel your pain. She's never requested one of these.. might have to surprise her.

Your wife does beautiful work too. I am sure glad that there are women that have carried that craft on, my Mother and grandmothers both did that . I had hand sewn blankets on my bed as far back as I can remember.

Thanks for posting the pictures.
