    A New Quilt Rack ... solid, low cost and easy peasy!

    Here's my new quilt rack ... simplistic and doesn't impose on the quilt it will hang.

    ... a pair of coat hooks, a 1-1/2" x 8 ft dowel and a wall!
    Hardest part was finding coat hooks, with a big enough hook for the dowel.

    Looks like a great idea!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.

    So, where *did* you find the hooks with a big enough support for the dowel? Can you give us an idea of the model/maker/price and store??
    I like this idea a lot!! Thank you for sharing it.

    nice job! So how about a pic with the quilt hanging from it :O
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    DHMom ... hanging sleeve is being installed ... it's my Pony Club quilt!

    JanInVA ... the hooks were just standard ones from Home Depot. $4.99 each.


    I wanted something that sat close to the ceiling, and did not steal the show from the quilt!
    Plus that would make it easy enough to put the rod and quilt on/off the rack/hooks.
    Longest dowel available was 8 ft. Otherwise I would have made it longer.
