Quilt Shelf

I ordered a shelf for my quilts as I was beginning to run out of closet space.  Finally found one at Wayfair.  My wonderful brother put it together for me.  I also moved my quilt ladder to the same room and put antique quilts made my husband's Grandmothers, Great Aunt and one by his mother. I love having them displayed together and I know he probably enjoys seeing them all together too.  His great aunt made the postage stamp quilt top on the bottom rung.  His mom gave it to me to mend as it had set of so long that the threads were starting to come apart. I sewed all the rows back together and my mother hand quilted it for me.  Then I put the binding on.  In one place the fabrics had deteriorated so bad I could not mend them, so I made an embroidered quilt label for that space.

These make lovely and treasure displays in your home. I adore that Strawberry Applique quilt that I see! Well done.

How nice that you have space for a quilt rack! It looks good! I have a colorful aqua-painted ladder, but it's jammed into my sewing space in such a way that quilts on it aren't very visible. Except for the 25 quilts hanging on the walls, the rest of my 50 or 60 quilts are in pillow cases in the top of our closest. Such is how it goes when one downsizes.
