I’m curious about something. As much as we all write about our quilt making, I never see posts about how people store their quilts. There must be a few collectors amongst us, who have more quilts than they actually use on a daily basis. What methods do you employ for storing quilts when they’re not in use?
At our house, extra quilts are kept in this corner cupboard. Because it’s positioned across from a window, we keep the door closed to protect the quilts from dust and sunlight.
We had the antique wardrobe fitted with shelves, so we could fold and stack quilts. The only problem with storing quilts here is that since they're “out of sight,” they’re also “out of mind” and don’t get aired or rotated into use as often as they should.
Here, Sheila is folding so fast, she’s just a blur!
Now I get to see and enjoy my quilts everyday. Thanks, dear friends, for a job well done!
Sheila received this Bow Tie quilt as a very special birthday gift (count the bow ties), from our friend Barb.
