We just need to place bits of fabrics, blocks or quilt tops on the design wall, bring into line the corners and boundaries with the stitching lines. The consistency of the flannel will cause the fabric to fasten. There are times when we can use straight pins to break through the batting. This proves helpful in keeping all the sections in place.

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.

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.

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.

The fabric used at the back can be the same that is used in front. We must keep in mind not to use too heavy a fabric. If the design wall is big enough to require seaming together the fabrics, using a flannel sheet can be considered. It is a good idea to pre wash all fabric used. Polyester is not a first-rate option for a design wall since it tends to have a good deal of loft and pills. A total cotton batting is the best choice. Quilts made with cotton batts are popular all the year round. They do not hold heat and make you feel cooler during summers. At the same time, they absorb and trap air and keep you warm on cold wintry nights.

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.
