Easily Adjust the Size to Fit Your Space!
This interesting quilt rack is simple to make from inexpensive PVC pipes and fittings. Plus you can easily adjust both the height and width to fit your space. More cross-bars can be added as well.
Since it’s free-standing it can go just about anywhere. We love the idea of creating a room divider by displaying one large quilt. A narrower rack with multiple cross-bars would be lovely placed crossways in a corner for a charming display of small quilts. A small rack sized for a mini quilt can be displayed on a table.
Quilt show organizers can use several racks to display quilts. A rack can also be used in the sewing room for keeping quilt parts organized (we’d add more cross-bars).
Since the PVC parts are not glued, the cross-bars can be unattached at one end and slipped through quilt sleeves. You can also use large beach clips to attach quilts or drape folded quilts over the bars. Plus the rack can be dismantled for storage.

The size of the rack, found on Quilt Frog, is not provided. Instructions are included for choosing the right size pipes to support the weight of the quilts you want to display (you can go less than 1 1/4″ (probably 1″) for a small rack for table-sized 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!
