Does anyone have pictures or plans for a quilt ladder? I want something that looks 'finished' and will give a nice display for large quilts. Hoping hubby can find time to 'surprise' me.
Thanks in advance! :thumbup:

I use an old ladder that was my late grandfather's in my dining room to display quilts. I also have a bunkbed ladder I found by my neighbor's trash that I use on landing in my living room. I don't know of a specific pattern for a ladder but would be interested if there is one. Don't forget to use acid free paper on the ladder rungs under your quilts--even sealed wood can leave marks (ask me how I know!). Good luck in your search.

Here are samples of what's available online - just do an internet for "quilt ladder" and these are among those that will come up.

I agree with searching the internet. plenty of great ideas and plans. If you have some lumber laying around, they can be made for a reasonable price and without too much difficulty.
