Babette. Quilt Display. August 24th , 2017.
Observe a playground of 3 year olds playing for a few minutes. They are the busiest little independent group of individuals. Each can make you smile, cause you sleepless nights, and give you the most love and joy you have ever experienced in your life. As a quilter, designing a children`s quilt is much like these little ones on the playground. Each of the unique children`s quilts stand alone in a sea of other unique handmade baby quilts, yet all belong to the collection entitled, "Children`s Quilts." The quilter smiles and sews, thinking of the child, who will cuddle under the quilt each night. Yet, those late nights spent making sure the children`s quilt meets with the high expectation of its maker, if not, long hours will be spent until the problem is resolved. But as the quilter adds the last stitches to the finished project, she knows that unique handmade quilt, will become another keepsake to her growing collection of the children`s quilts.
Well, it is quite hard to attract a crowd if you`ll just place your quilts on the floor - visitors wouldn`t be able to see your quilt collection from a distance. And it wouldn`t really help if you`ll just tape them on the wall - it might come off as very unprofessional and messy. That`s why portable quilt racks are highly recommended to use in trade show exhibits because they keep everything in orderly fashion and easy for both the exhibitor and potential customers.
Why should you use Swarovski crystal rhinestones? Because they will last the lifetime of each quilt that you create. Although there are less expensive rhinestones available, they may not continue to adhere to your quilting blocks when washed. A quilt is an heirloom. If your rhinestones fall off, it will lose some of it`s value. Genuine crystal rhinestones will add an amazing touch of sparkle to your next quilting project. All you need is your own household iron.
A traditional wooden quilt stand is the ideal furnishing for storing your quilts... at home. But if you plan to bring them everywhere, like in trade shows or in class, you might want to try and focus your attention on the portable types. These are usually available in steel construction, specifically aluminum, and could weigh around 14 to 17 pounds. A standard model is composed of a single horizontal beam that`s supported by vertical beams at each side. Most of the products in the market have fully adjustable horizontal beams, which could extend up to 10 feet to match any length of your trade show backdrops or quilts. The tripod feet can be made wider to increase their stability.
This will probably be the best option if you are looking to preserve your quilt. But this simply means you will not be able to enjoy it all. What`s the point of having a quilt if it`s going to be stashed away where it cannot be seen or used? This is why many quilt owners eventually by a rack to store it on. With an official piece of furniture to place it own, family members will be more respectful. And just as important, you will be able to display it in whatever room you please.
