    Quilt Hanger

    This is a pretty basic project, but one of my projects none the less.

    A family friend made a decroative quilt for my son when he was born. My wife and I wanted to display it in his room. The problem in doing so, was that this quilt did not have a pocket on the back so it could be hung on a dowel. That is why I used a clamping design that you can see in the pictures.

    Nice

    This was a very nice project. Handmade quilts are lifetime keepers and to have a nice way to display it is special. Good job!

    Bob,

    I like the knobs. Are they hiding screws or are they just decorative?

    Very well done Sean. I have several friends who would probably buy one of those from you.

    One friend lives in Connecticut and makes quilts. It was a mind blowing surprise when I got one of her quilts in the mail one day. It is the thickest one I have seen in many years. This girl (Woman) spent over a year, on and off, making this thing for me. When I ask her why, she said I was the one that talked her into taking a quilt making class and she really enjoyed it. If it took a hundred years, I could never repay that kindness. She had no idea how much I love quilts.


    It's way to busy being on my bed to hang up though.

    (By the way, this is right after I got the bedroom suite. I did finally get lamps, pictures and curtains. )

    Nice piece Sean.

    How does the round thingy attach to the base?

    Jesse,

    Glad you like it

    Its a pretty simple setup. The round thing is a hardwood dowel. I drilled a pilot hole in each end. Then I took a piece of prem. pine that I had, and cut a dado down the center. Then I ran the dado on my router table to round the edges, so it wasn't a square cut... more of a curved cut out. Then I ran the whole piece on the router table with a chamfor bit, to dress up the edges a little. After that I drilled 2 counter sunk hols in the back of the piece, that matched up with the holes previously drilled in the dowel. Then I drilled counter sunk holes in the front edge, below where the dowel was going to fasten.

    I screwed one end of the dowel in. Then I slide the top edge of the quilt in. After it was centered. I put the other screw in. This pulled the dowel tight to the board, clamping the quilt in place.

    To mount it to the wall, I used the counter sunk screw holes on the front of the board,that are no longer visible due to the hanging quilt.

    Sorry if I gave too much detail
