It wouldn`t really be a big problem if you have multiple pieces to hang on your quilt racks. You can buy quilt racks that have a tower-like effect which allows you to hang 2 or more expandable rods on top of each other by using clips or S-hooks. You can also connect several quilt racks together using a guild hub so you can arrange them in different directional patterns.
Mazloomi discusses how initially the work of African American quilters was largely ignored by the traditional quilting community as it did not conform to traditional commonly-held practices and beliefs surrounding quilting. Quilts created by African American quilters had naturally been influenced by the African culture from which the quilters and their ancestors had come. Even in the quilts of today the use of bold strong vibrant color can be seen in the quilts of their black creators.
There is a vast collection of books on quilting in existence today. Spirits of the Cloth: Contemporary African American Quilts stands out among them. In this book Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi gives African American quilters an emerging group within quilting a voice to be heard and an opportunity to be recognized for their outstanding contribution to the field of both art and quilting. Not only does this book outline in detail the beginnings of African American quilting and how it has progressed through the years it also provides stunningly beautiful photographs of quilts in this genre.
Probably the biggest advantage to using an online store for most people is the selection. Quilt racks are a niche product. Unless you can find a store that specializes in them the selection in the typical store will usually be sparse. If you typically shop at a large discounter like Walmart there will probably only be a few cheaply-made models available. This is fine if you are primarily looking to save money. But many people don`t like to scrimp on tacky furniture.
