    My son made this for me for Christmas this year. I like it it fits perfect at the end of my hall and I don't trip over it like I did a regular rack. I guess I should have seperated the two pictures a little more!

    That is a really great rack! I need to get something to display my quilts. Right now they're all hidden away in the closet, except for the one on the sofa.

    Ingenious solution!

    And - if one had the wall space available - you could easily have a set of arms going in the opposite direction for displaying another 4 quilts.

    Lucky you - it's a wonderful gift.

    He did a great job. The quilts look nice there!
    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.

    Your son was very talented to come up with that idea. It makes the most of a small space.

    What a great idea. I think I will have my son build one for me. I really like your quilts also.
