    I have a similar multi-quilt rack ... three levels of rods.
    Had it made to fit the space between a window and a corner in my bedroom.
    This way I get to admire my work first thing in the morning and last thing at night!!!
    The lower rod holds the quilts that I use periodically in my bedroom.
    The upper ones tend to just hang for show ... though easily removed if/when needed.

    If you are making one ... it's best to have each lower rod come into the room a little further, to allow for the bulk of the quilts that are hung.

    I wonder how heavy the quilts are on this wall. How would this be placed on a wall? I can hear my hubby.

    Love the idea.

    Love the idea.
    With one that big and with that many quilt, it would definitely need to be installed at the studs.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Looks great, I think she probably figured out it would need to be hung so the screws would go into the studs. Most people are at least that smart.
    I don't have that much wall space.

    That is very nice but I sure don't have any blank wall space like that!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Wow. Awesome. Showed dear hubby. Believe it or not he says it is not to difficult to make. I wonder if they used curtain rods to hang on the shelving? A project for his retirement. Thanks for sharing. Piecefully Carol

    That looks very similar to what Eleanor Burns has in her design room. There was a photo of it online.

    If you didn't want to hang one on the wall you could build an oversize ladder and lean in against the wall. Don't know if my cats would stay off it though!
