    I have a good friend who is an avid quilt maker. I just sent her an e-mail asking if she knows where to find plans for one. Will let you know.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Took some doing but I found a couple plan sites. Here is one:
    http://www.freeww.com/quiltrackplans.html

    Yesterday, I went into a local quilt shop and asked about racks and hangers. The owner said two features were essential for quilt racks. One, the hangers must be far enough apart, both front to back and vertically to allow hanging of thick quilts and to show them off. Two, all parts must be well sanded to prevent snags and the final finish should be a hard 'clear' coat to prevent transfer of stains to the fabric. He suggested gym floor finish or similar. And, they must be priced to resell.
    In his case, he has a rich retired guy who isn't interested in making money. He just likes to make things in his shop so he sells at a loss. Where have we heard that before? Hard to compete with those guys.
