I looked at a lot of different quilt racks before designing this one. Most of the racks looked at seemed either overly chunky and heavy, or ornate. The purpose of a quilt rack is to display quilts. Like a picture frame, it should enhance the art, but not out shine it.
So I decided to make it with as little wood as possible, just a few graceful curves. This turned out to be a great exercise in wood-bending. (My first attempt at bending was back in February.) It’s a surprisingly easy technique. Just takes time and patience.
If you would like to make this design, here is my template for the s-curve sides.
