Large selection of Compression type Quilt Racks at
affordable prices. Custom sized to fit your quilt, tapestry,
run or wall hanging. The best in the industry.
Quilt Bars (sometimes
called “Compression Quilt Racks) are designed to hold
your quilt, tapestry, rug or wall hanging firmly and
with even pressure across the entire width of the
textile. The textile will not sag or slip from the
hanger. Material is held securely between two pieces of
wood. The front piece and back piece are compressed
together by a system of T-nuts and hanger bolts with
wood knobs. Textile is simple slid under the bottom 1¼”
of wood and compressed with the knobs.
Not going passed
the hanger bolts. Please note: Never put holes in your
quilt to hang it.
Utilizing the latest in hanging technology, our racks
can be hung on the wall after you have compressed your
textile in the hanger. By using steel keyhole hangers,
recessed in the wood, your quilt rack will lay flush to
the wall. Hanging instructions are included.

order your rack a couple of inches longer then your
quilt is wide. This makes for a better centered look and
gives the quilt or textile more support at the ends.
