I just have to show you our platform ladder.  It is wooden, very old and heavy, and perfect for hanging up the quilt rack.  What looks like the top rung is actually a platform to stand on!  I can't imagine trying to get the quilt rack attached to the wall while balancing on a standard ladder!

What a beautiful quilt, I always love strings and how neat that you quilted it in a frame! I'm doing the same now with my 15-91 and it is so much fun! Thanks for sharing.
