It wouldn`t really be a big problem if you have multiple pieces to hang on your quilt racks. You can buy quilt racks that have a tower-like effect, which allows you to hang 2 or more expandable rods on top of each other by using clips or S-hooks. You can also connect several quilt racks together using a guild hub, so you can arrange them in different directional patterns.
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.
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.
A design wall is a place on a wall where we can hang units of a quilt. This permits the quilter to stand back and scrutinize the design before sewing the quilt. Quilters often dangle batting or plain white flannel on their design walls, because quilt blocks tend to stick to it effortlessly without pinning. A design wall is one of the tools that are of immense advantage to any quilt-maker.
How does the story of each unique quilt begin? As a quilter commences her initial design work, thoughts grow and develop from the design board to the sewing machine. Each of her children`s quilts tells its own story, as the pieces are cut from carefully chosen fabrics, sewn carefully into patterns. The story`s is illustrated through color, design, and texture. Whether the quilter has a special child in mind, as she sews and quilts, or if the quilter is designing and quilting for the love of her art, either way, the children`s quilts come to life step by step.
