This DIY Wall Rack Takes Up Little Floor Space

Perfect for Storing Strips, Borders, Tops and Other Parts of Quilts in Process!
No matter how large and well organized your sewing room is, you can always use more storage space, right? Here’s a great idea for turning a wall with little floor space in front of it into storage.
This unit was constructed with 1x4s and dowels, with a 2×4 used for hanging. It’s perfect for the space and provides storage for quilt tops, pieced strips and even jelly roll strips waiting to be used.
JoAnne from The Patriotic Quilter also plans to use hers for keeping strips and strip sets organized, as well as borders. She provides an excellent overview of how it was built.
If you’re handy with a drill and hammer, or know someone who is, you can easily make one to fit into your sewing room. Simply alter the width and height to fit the available space.
This is a great idea for displaying small quilts in other areas of the house, too. We can easily imagine a smaller unit hanging under a narrow shelf and filled with one or more small quilts.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
