    quilt rack

    Hope you can tell what these are like. I have a blind corner in my living room so hung them there, but you can hang anywhere as long as you screw them into a wall stud. This is made from alder wood which looks just like oak, 48" long and the 4 "arms" are 24". Hangs quilts beautifully and doesn't take up any floor space.Name:  DSCF1735.JPG

    Jaba, those are beautiful! And so are the quilts! I wish my husband did woodworking, but he'd rather read ( also a good hobby, but you can 't hang quilts on the books!

    licorice works better than yogurt, and more immediate. I rarely find that as a side effect and even more rarely would want to! My mom and I would fight over the black licorice . It would get pretty ugly! Lol!

    Love seeing everyone chatting, yes I do! I can eat licorice all day and it is just fine. guess it depends on the person. me I think its all this jell type stuff it should do the opposite right? like glue? lol. ok never tried Danish candies much truthfully. or Swedish. My mom was truly about those German things. She was an AMERICAN ask her would tell you this, even though she had a very strong accent. She was offended when people said where are you from.. sigh she was so proud of being an American but never got rid of her homeland when it came to food or music. ump a pa bands were all the rage, we listened to that a lot. Its funny how certain things trigger memories isn't it? forgot all about that. good memory.

    I am going to start the medallion quilt in the block of the month. Patrice has approved me but said to have a back up person in case I get sick. Shoot did a whole year of table runner swaps and now I get the you can only do it if your covered. So Jan I said you would cover me if I got sick for a bit. Should have asked you but told her we were like sisters you would be there. phew thank God for angels right?

    Will do brat! Nancia was going to put them on here for sale but Patrice said no. He's going to make a couple more and I'm going to see if the quilt shop in Powell and Cody will display them for me. He loves coming up with ideas for wood working and these are fantastic to display your quilts. Need to sell some.

    I think the issues are product liability, and financial. You have to pay to get a cookie pop up advertising spot. And, of course, something constructed of wood is potentially more likely to cause an injury than the swap blocks, and the qb would not want to be held responsible in any way. I still think it's a great idea. I could see one in my family room right above the heater. Then when dh gets cold, has very thin blood, he could pull a heated quilt down, and warm up. Sounds good to me!

    come on they sell sewing machines on the sales board could sew your finger into those, is the qb liable? no, and rotary blades seen them for sale here too, talk about dangers. Those quilt hangers are beautiful saw two hanging on the wall in Jans house with her beautiful quilts on them, magical display units and easy to pull forward or put closer to the wall. not dangerous at all. I wish I could afford one but probably my landlord would not appreciate me putting things screwed into their walls (lmao when I write this Jan is my landlord). I would have one in a ny second. I had a standing one but they take so much room, this elevates things to eye level which is amazing.

    Ingenious idea Nancia, heated blanket right at your fingertips. Way cheaper than buying those towel warmers for the bathroom. Landlord will have to think about that miss brat.

    jaba I love your quilt display racks that hang on the wall; what a clever idea.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Thanks dabbler I love them. Bill made me one to put downstairs too so I can hang the quilt tops on it that need to be quilted. Long arm is downstairs so will make it really handy. For that matter my whole sewing area is downstairs and I take up practically the whole basement. At least I'm using it that's for sure.
    Been cleaning out and throwing for the last 2 days and will do it again today. So much stuff that I use to do and don't anymore and tupperware type containers and small kitchen appliances, I have 3 of everything. Only need 1 since we sold the cabin and the house in Denver. 3 truckloads so far to the second hand store, lots of just garbage, trading mamahauser x-stitch supplies for a storm at sea quilt (I can't do pp at all) items for miss brat that she had to leave behind in her move here and several kits that I need to sell on this board. I actually have a big closet now that I can find something in and cupboards that I can tell what's in the pantry. Better get to sorting again, check in later.
