I'd call having too many quilts a "happy problem" - one we all wish we had. But it raises an important question about quilt storage. Once beds are covered, walls adorned and tables topped, what do you do with those quilts 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.
The antique wardrobe was originally designed to hang garments from hooks. We had it fitted with shelves so the quilts wouldn’t get stacked too high, causing permanent fold lines. The only problem with storing them here is that since the quilts are “out of sight,” they’re also “out of mind” and don’t get aired out 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!
Here's Sheila, sharing a Bow Tie quilt made for her by our friend Barb, for a very special birthday (hint: count the bow ties).
