Jill Kerttula recently re-posted a great tip for storing your quilts. It involves 2 shelf brackets, 1 closet rod (cut), plumber's pipes, and chain.

Jill originally wrote on her Facebook page:

In case you are looking for a good way to store/display your art quilts... Here is what I have done with 2 shelf brackets, 1 closet rod (cut), and plumber's pipes. The chain is for security, but may not be needed depending on how secure your brackets are.Jill knows a thing or two about quilting as well as she was one of two artists featured in the Special Exhibition Rising Stars at Houston 2018. The annual Rising Star exhibit  features the works of specially selected quilt artists who have developed and demonstrated substantial creative growth over recent time. Ricky sat down with her to talk about the honor and to look at some of her quilts.

Recently she updated the post to say:

I am reposting this, because it has turned out to be a great idea. I now not only use this one, but also a couple other bars in a pegboard to hang small pieces on. It makes them easy to get to and stores them hanging. The poles I used for the longest started to bend a bit after a while, so you might opt for metal, wood, or thicker pipes. I also bought the fittings for the ends, so no more duct tape!
