When I began quilting in January of this year, my finished projects quickly piled up in a corner of the craft room. Even though they were clearly beginner projects, I thought it would be nice to display them in some way. I found some great ideas on Pinterest and finally settled on an old (or faux old) ladder on which to hang my little crappy quilts. Well on Mother’s Day (because I’m a pet mom), my husband returned from his weekly pilgrimage to Lowe’s with some random pieces of wood and informed me that he was starting a little craft project of his own!
I’m so proud of him for making this for me. After work for a couple of nights he would spend time cutting, sanding, staining, painting and distressing my new/old ladder. I love it!
It’s great that the ladder allows me to display only a little of each quilt (so I can hide all those beginner-level mistakes!) but makes them accessible enough to pull one out if I want to use it or show it off.
