Marveille Quilt Display August 27th, 2017 - 19:54:17
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 elderly people remember being taught, as children how to crochet, a practice handed down through the family for years. The exact beginning of this special craft has been argued for years with many countries claiming this honor. In our own country, the first English settlers did it in order to provide various garments for the family. Crochet quilts were often made for babies. Originally used to create such things as lace and other adornments it was soon found practical for clothing and bed coverings. For many years afghans were a favorite and many won ribbons at county fairs. They were especially appreciated for their practical use when someone was ill.
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.
For example, the soft baby flannel that may be used in the piecing of a clown`s hat may evoke memories of a toy that the quilter`s son once played with in the nursery. The soft pink cotton that once was the out grown nightgown of a clumsy toddler is now the ballerina`s skirt in a children`s quilt of a graceful little girl, who grew up and now loves to show her Mommy how much she loves to dance, instead of crawling around the house. Or the blue jean train on the newly finished children`s quilt which was once a little boy`s first pair of dungarees. Tonight, when he goes to bed, and hugs his handmade children`s quilt, the story can be told again about the little train on that special children`s quilt, a keepsake for years to come, with a story to tell.
