I love the look of quilts displayed on a ladder. When my husband found a vintage ladder, I scrubbed it clean and made rung wraps to protect my quilts. To make a rung wrap, measure the rung length and add 1"; measure the circumference and add 2". Cut a strip this size from fabric that matches the ladder. Hem each edge ½", and add hook-and-loop tape to the long edges.
