    These are some pictures of a series of Quilt display racks that I have built over the years for use in various places in our house. They are made of Cherry, (in case you haven't guessed, my favorite wood), and relate in size to the intended items to be displayed. They are in various rooms in use for display of the quilts and to have them available for timely usage. All of these quilt rack designs are patterned after some 19th Century quilt racks that I saw in various Shaker Museums that I have visited.

    I know that it looks Celtic, but it is called Tibetan Endless Knot. It is one of the traditional designs that Tibetan monks use on there devotional items, such as Altar Cloths or, in this case, Meditation shawls. I made them by constructing the knot as a separate piece, and then appliquéd that piece to the top of a to be diamond quilted shawl sized top and then quilted it. They turned out nicely and we use them for meditating in the winter months in the Attic room that we use for that purpose, for that little bit of extra comfort for these tired old bones. They spend most of the time just sitting there looking pretty.

    Woodwork is beautiful, as well as your quilts. Has DH considered selling?

    I am DH and I don't sell any more. The cost would be prohibitive and then there is the shipping. I don't know how you would pkg. them so that they would arrive in one piece.

    John, if you ever do figure out how to package/ship them, I would definitely be in line to buy a few from you. You did a beautiful job with them. :thumbup: :thumbup:
