Fauna. Quilt Display. August 28th , 2017.
To a typical person, a quilt might seem like a normal piece of bedding. But for many quilt owners this could not be further from the truth. Often they are one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Almost always they are hand made, either by the owner or from a good friend. They have intricate designs and take dozens if not hundreds of hours to create. However, since they are stitched together they usually don`t hold up to wear-and-tear like mass-manufactured blankets from a factory. This poses a dilemma for many owners.
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.
Many people want a quilt rack for their home. This is often because they have a quilt gathering dust in the closet. They want to display them but know that quilts cannot withstand the wear and tear that takes place in a typical household. A quilt rack is an excellent way to show off a quilt in a safe way. If you are thinking about purchasing one, you should seriously consider buying it online. Using a web retailer offers much more selection that would not be available in a normal store.
Many manufactures also offer metal quilt racks through online dealers. The brand names along with the pictures and detailed reviews are also presented on the websites. The metal racks are very sturdy and well built with good antique finishes in gold or silver. They also mention other important details such as the number of quilts that it can hold, the weight capacity and instructions for assembling. These come in the form of scrolled ones too, and provide a convenient method of storing.
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.
