    Modred189, I'll bet a lot of the members of this board are hoping you are their son.

    I like the first one and the Amish one. I think she would like either one. You are a good Son.

    Cool

    UPDATE!!!
    As promised, I wanted to post a review/pictures once it was delivered and set up. I ended up ordering this one:

    I also went to ThingsRemembered in the mall and had them create a little plaque that tacked into the wood. I opened the box when it got here, and it's a really nice product. It's freshly stained (ooh that wood-stain smell!), and made of real wood, not laminated particle board.
    They took it back and set it up, successfully, to rave reviews. And here are the pictures :

    With plaque visible.

    Complete with a recent (?) creation. She's a prolific creator so I'm not sure how old it is.

    Thanks everyone for your help!

    Too bad it doesn't match the Ferrari-themed humidor we got for my father!

    I know all this is to be kept on the DL re your DM but when this is all done, can we tell her what a fabulous, thoughtful son she has?

    I thought about it, but the websites scared me. They are covered in disclaimers like "we never guarantee any delivery ever" and "due to the handmade nature of the products they may not be square, may wobble, and vary in sizes." Just too much up in the air, imho.

    The stand is beautiful & looks great next to the chest. Your mom's quilt is gorgeous. You are such a thoughtful son.

    I have an old wooden step ladder that works great. Then there's the other kind of ladder with rungs that you can lean against the wall.

    They are hand made by a local man and great quality. Good luck in whatever you choose. It will be from her son with love! SHE WILL LOVE IT! regardless!

    Oh, it's beautiful and looks so nice with the chests she has. I love the idea of the plaque. Congratulations to your mom for a wonderful present and fabulous son.

    If it is for displaying other than at home then look for photographers display equipment. They are called "backdrop stands". I have seen vendors at quilt shows that make and sell them. Most are for permanent installation in the home. You might also look in any large furniture store for the stand up racks. They are usually put at the end of the bed to hang the quilt over. Antique shops also have these.
    If you want to put it permanently on the wall, then can go to the Home store and get wooden brackets and rods. I will try and search for the name of the company I have seen at the quilt shows.
