    New Quilt Holder

    So the DH has always been supportive of my hobbies. Recently he built a closet off my sewing room It is actually the "walkway" from our house (my sewing room) and the second story of his garage. We never use it to get into that space so he suggested a big closet. It has sloping ceilings on both sides. I wanted a space to hang tops when they were in the queue to be quilted. I had come up with a design but was not convinced it would work. So DH come up with this idea - I started with only two poles as I was not sure before we did it .... but after having hung them up, I can not wait to go the Home Depot for more!!

    This is exactly how mother made hanging rods for our clothes hangers because we didn't have a closet
    to hang our clothes when I was a child. How nice for you to have this space.

    Your DH's closet solution has solved a problem that has been bugging me for 4 years! And MUCH cheaper than the $1700 I had feared!! Yay!
    Thank you for posting pictures of it.
