Pin It Weekly #70 Quilt Displays

There are some beautiful quilts in Pinterest.  I discovered that there are also many beautiful ways to display some of those quilts.  I show some of those display ideas on my "stacked, quilts" board.

A small goat cart makes a darling display... 
Adore this idea for storing and displaying quilts - where can I get one? :) #whimziequiltz

As does a reconfigured baby bed...
Use your old baby crib as a quilt rack.

Crib Rail Quilt Display!   I'm gonna be looking at Craigslist for a crib!

Of course, old chairs are especially easy display shelves since they can be plopped just about anywhere.  Just be sure that no one moves the quilts and plops themselves on the chair if it is too old to hold them.
For those cool fall evenings on the porch.

I want to make this one. It reminds me of a modern version of the one my grandmother made me when I was little. I still have it  ...   but it's thread bear and worn with love.

Here's a different use for vintage farm implements...
What a great idea!! From Quilt Hollow Blog.

Or if you can use a ladder this way...
Sewing machine table and quilts on ladder. Put spool cabinet on top of table?

Or that way...

Repurpose ladders to display blankets. #retail #display #merchandising #repurpose

How about an empty basket or box...

Blanket storage...the mix of the wire basket and traditional elements...mixing it up

Pretty armoire. This would be amazing to have in the family room to have all the big comfy blankets handy.

And of course, there's always a rack made especially for quilts...
Want this rack!

AMB's Blog Tour is almost finished.  Today we visit Fireball Quilts (Utah) and Hollyhock Quilts (Oklahoma) today.  If you haven't been by yet, you should definitely get going.  There are some surprises waiting and, as always, a chance to win some lovely AMB fabrics.

Tomorrow jog on over to Dora Quilts (New Mexico) and So Many Quilts, So Little Time (Arizona).  Then on Friday (our last day of the tour) hop over to Quilt As You Go (Alaska) Barbara Bieraugel Designs (Hawaii).  

I have thoroughly enjoyed following the blog tour and hope you have also.  It's going to be odd not checking in with the tour.  I'm also going to miss reading about the states and the talented quilters who created the license plates.
