Custom Wood Furniture / handmade in Wichita, Kansas
I have had several requests to build a quilt case. The ones I have seen just didn’t have the character I was looking for. I wanted to create a conversation piece but give the main tribute to the quilts inside the case. I try to do this by using lots of glass space and thin framing in hopes that ones eyes will be drawn to the large front glass where the quilt is. An inlay, in this case a rose, is installed on the top pediment , much like a rose would be sewn into a quilt patch. A high pitched glass lid will increase the view of the front quilt and 4 to 5 inches of the top of the quilts in back. Should be able to hang four quilts comfortably. Post number 2 will have the finished product with my customers quilts in it. This piece is made from quarter sawn white oak. It will have a medium walnut Watco oil finish with hand rubbed clear top coat. Many inlays are available for the pediment. The customer chose this particular one. Keep in mind the lid is not finished and the top pediment is not attached. They are just sitting there so I can shoot the pics.
