This is why I LOVE blogging!!!
You never know what idea is lurking on a blog, waiting patiently for you to find it!!
Chris, over at AnAQuilting posted this photo in her latest blog post!
The ladder was too tall for her room so she improvised by hanging it on the wall sideways! I love this because each quilt hangs independently and does not obscure any of the other quilts! I am on the lookout for ladders now so I can hang several in my quilting studio!!
I thought you all might like this idea too!
Crazy Quilting is addictive so we just have to STITCH IT OUT LOUD!
One of my magazines I just got in the last few days shows how to make a cover for the rungs of the ladder to protect the quilt. You just cut a piece of fabric about an inch longer than the rung and a couple of inches wider than the circumference. Hem the edges and add velcro to fasten around the rung.
In order to see the rainbow, first you must endure the rain.
This would've worked great in my old house with the long hall...but have no place for it in my current home...this way or standing up...
Does this hat make my butt look big?
Nice tip. I just love those old ladders. Tom refuses to give his up to me. Thanks for sharing girls.
How fun to use a horizontal ladder instead of a leaning one. You get to see more of the quilt this way. Here's one done with a side of a baby bed:
I bought two of those at the antique fair at Round Top, Texas 5 or 6 years ago. Do you think either one of them is up with quilts displayed on it? No, but that may be about to change. I have a short one and a taller one.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
I'm used to seeing the ladder used the other way. This is a great idea!!!! Like the info about making a cuff for the rungs, also.
I have a doll-sized ladder. Think I'll make some small quilts and hang them on it!!!!
eta: Was just looking at my Chr*stmas Country Sampler. There's a darling picture of a ladder with doll-sized santas sitting on the rungs. Ok, here's my dream picture...red and white quilts on the rungs with santas (I collect them) nestled among the quilts. YES!YES!YES! Now I just have to make the red and white quilts.

What a good idea using it sideways!
Hmmm! I know there's a ladder out in the garage and I have some wall space! TFS!
Love the look. I'll keep that in mind as I empty my Dad's workshop.
