Victorian Quilt Case is finished


Here it is, my version of a victorian quilt case. The case holds four quilts. The slant is steep enough to see a good amount of each quilt when standing in front.

I have a page devoted to quilt cases and wall and floor display woodworking  that will grow as time goes by:

    That is the most beautiful quilt case I have ever seen! A true work of craftsmanship! That sweatshirt speaks well of your tastes right there! Merry Christmas to you and your precious family! God Bless!

    I hope the glass is special glass that will protect the Quilts from harmful U.V. rays which will fade and wash out the colors, keep them out of the sun esspecially if there antiques, also put tissue paper over the rollers to keep the rollers from staining your quilts.

      Hi Mark,
      Thanks for the input. Just regular double strength glass in all the cases I have made. Never seen one with UV glass installed. The Victorian rollers don’t have any stain on them at all for I read the same thing you are talking about somewhere else. the other ones I made sure they were sealed well with several clear coats. Have not heard any complaints from my customers yet.
