Simple nothing to do quilt racks

There I was, huddled by the warm flickering fire on a frozen tundra like winter day with no projects of purpose on the to do list. My wife, a huge quilter, was expecting some quilting pals soon.  Casual, she suggested I might want to take a look at a set of quilt rack plans her friend was bringing. Concerned 😬 it was a trap to make 100 or something, I muttered “frizzle frazzle freaking frackers”. Unfortunately, I did not have my hearing aids in and, unbeknownst to me, I muttered frizzle frazzle freaking frackers rather loudly. 

Knowing the secret phrase for “I heard you”, which is “what did you just say?”  I scrambled for the most plausible thing I could think 🤔 of that rhymes with frizzle frazzle freaking frackers - what spewed from my mouth was nothing short of sheer brilliance - I quickly retorted, “I said, I would love to take a look, and how many would you like me make?” Ha, disaster averted - once again, our hero saved the day.  

Well, when the dust settled, I ended up making two. Both are cherry with a salad bowl finish. 

So, in truth, my wife has a friend who wanted a quilt rack and I didn’t have much on the project plate. About a month later another friend wanted one. Not as exciting as my first account of the event. But the results were the same.  Two cherry quilt racks because I didn’t have much to do. 
no quilters in my house but i sure like yours.

working with my hands is a joy,it gives me a sense of fulfillment,somthing so many seek and so few find.-SAM MALOOF.

Well done!  And nice save (sort of 😆).  
Nicely done! My wife quilts from time to time. We’re about to concert one of the spare bedrooms to a craft room for her. A quilt rack might be right up that alley. 

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Now that was quick thinking Frenchie... cool project.

Now if you were in the WORDLE forum here, you probably would have gotten yesterdays word in one... at worst two.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Cute story! The quilt racks look great.
