    A clever idea recycling for a quilt display

    Occasionally I go to quiltsby.me to check out all the lovely's people have made. Someone uploaded a picture that they had recycled an unsafe older baby crib into a display for quilts. This is clever! Check it out....

    Blogging ahead.....research in quilting and sewing with a dab of cooking/recipes too.

    It is clever.
    I've actually been on the lookout for about a year for an old crib like this for quilts, scarves, and such.

      Every quilter should have a baby crib for all purposes. I remember seeing one that was used for fabric storage (on bolts) with a cutting table on top - but can't find it now. Check out some of these though: https://www.google.com/search?q=upcy...ed=0CAcQ_AUoAg

        It's a great idea! So many slats to use. I was driving home from my Dad's one night about a year ago and saw a white one sitting out for the trash. It didn't take me long to pop it into my car. I took off the hardware (gave all that to hubby to put in his garage) and I just lean the 2 sides up for hanging quilts. I have so many wall hangings, it's great for them cause you can get more of them on for display. I don't think DH would appreciate it if I would hang every single wall hanging I ever made. I would have a new wall color for sure!

          They make excellent quilt rack display, especially for large quilts that don't display nicely on those Big Box Stor quilt racks! Here's mine!image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

                  Awesome !!! I really like the stand your DH built.....wish my 3rd generation carpenter DH would do something like this for me ( fat chance )
                  I love the crib idea too, I am on the look out for a crib too....hope I find one !

                    That's very clever... Looks good, too.

                      Glad to know that I am not alone in stopping and recycling trash into treasures !!! Have gotten a good many useful items that way, but the only crib so far was a vintage 1950 doll crib that DH refurbished into a working crib again for the Great Grands. They love it. Now I need to find a grown up version for us !!!!

                        The old wooden clothes stands would work as well.

                          I LOVE the crib display idea Monique! I still have the baby my children slept in. I can't bear to throw it away, but I couldn't hand it down for the grands since it isn't up to today's safety standards. Thanks for such a creative idea!

                            I wish I had kept the crib we had for the kids.....I hated to get rid of it.
                            Using it to display quilts would have been a great idea !
