Inheriting an heirloom quilt or finishing your first sampler is only the first step in the journey of a quilt. Now you have to decide how to display it so the world can appreciate it and you can enjoy it on a regular basis. I asked some friends how to display your quilts and got some great ideas. Of course, some people just have their quilts stored in a bag in the closet or laid out flat as a guest bed spread.
If you are looking for how to display your quilts, get inspired by these friends and bloggers.
How to Display Your Quilts
Display in a Glass Front Hutch
I love to display quilts my grandmother made me. What better place to keep them than in a glass front hutch my grandmother passed along to me as well. – Mandy B
Hang with a Curtain Rod
Want to display a quilt but don’t have a fancy display rack? Try a curtain rod like Megan from The Pretty Pickle.
Make a Rack out of Tobacco Sticks
My friend Kayelynn has her quilt displayed on a quilt rack made out of repurposed tobacco sticks.
