I’m curious about something. There’s plenty written online about the making of quilts, but very little about how people handle the abundance of quilts in their homes. Once beds are covered and walls adorned, what happens to all those quilts not in use? How do people store their quilts?
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 for hanging garments from hooks. We had it fitted with shelves so the quilts wouldn’t be stacked too high, creating permanent fold lines.
Here, Sheila is folding so fast, she’s just a blur!
Now I get to see and enjoy my quilts everyday. Thanks, dear friends! We all agreed, it was a very good thing they did.
Lest anyone asks about the red and white bowtie quilt tucked amongst the others piled on the sofa, it was made for Sheila by our friend Barb, for a very special birthday.
So tell me, how do you store your quilts?
