Alita. Quilt Display. August 25th , 2017.
You must agree that there is something vibrant and homely about seeing quilts hanging on a wall. Using wall quilt racks, this can be easily done as the online suppliers offer you all the hardware necessary in the form of clamps and you can also have some extra batting pieces to keep behind the quilt in order to thickness to the clamp. Some of the wall mounts display the quilt flat, while others do so in pleated or gathered form.
Just because it`s called a "quilt" display rack doesn`t mean that its use is limited to such items. Quilt racks would also be useful as in-store displays to advertise latest store deals, services, and products. You could also use these to hang curtains, which could then be use to surround your exhibitor space. Teachers can even use these to feature class artwork projects or as teaching aids. Photographers are also fond of using these to hold their background graphics during their outdoor pictorial sessions.
People who do not particularly like to make quilts using material and a sewing machine have found that they can make beautiful quilts by crocheting. When placed on a bed the quilts stand out with their bright colors and complicated designs. It has been found that designs such as Dresden plate are lovely when done by crochet. Anyone who has done any of the basic crochet stitches can complete a crochet quilt. The result is a beautiful creation that, unlike a regular handmade or purchased quilt, does not need a filler. In addition, it has the advantage that it can be turned and the same beautiful pattern is on the other side.
Some people initially try to just keep it in the living room, keeping it on a couch so it can be easily used. But individuals quickly realize that this is not going to be a good long term solution. No matter how much instruction and scolding is given to kids, the quilt will frequently end up on the floor. This will get it dirty. And if it is stepped on over time it will eventually get torn. The other option is to simply store it in a closet.
There is a vast collection of books on quilting in existence today. Spirits of the Cloth: Contemporary African American Quilts stands out among them. In this book, Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi gives African American quilters, an emerging group within quilting, a voice to be heard and an opportunity to be recognized for their outstanding contribution to the field of both art and quilting. Not only does this book outline in detail the beginnings of African American quilting and how it has progressed through the years, it also provides stunningly beautiful photographs of quilts in this genre.
