You can also use this rack for other things. It will be great in the sewing room for organizing and storing pieces of a quilt in process. Or make a drying rack for the laundry room.

Just about anyone who’s handy can put this together. The process involves cutting pipe to size (which can often be done for you at Lowes and Home Depot), and then gluing the pieces together.

The following video from Know How Now shows how to cut and glue PVC pipe. A ratcheting cutter produces clean cuts, although a hack saw can also be used.

The rack can even be painted. That’s best done before the cut pieces are assembled. You’ll find instructions for both spray painting and painting the pipe by hand here at WikiHow.


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!
