Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Stacked Quilts

It finally occurred to me that because I use a variety of ways to store quilts, I might share those and some that I've found on Pinterest. 

Richard hung three vintage, wooden boxes on the wall of the studio above the sewing table. It's a space that is too difficult to reach, so I chose to fold and place baby quilts in them. To protect the fabric from the wood, I placed plastic along the bottom and back.

Another way that I store quilts is to hang them on a baby bed rail. This I simply lean up against anything so long as it's out of the way. When I need to get behind it for something, I just move it to another spot. Even with the seven quilts on it, it's not heavy to move.

Finally, I fold and stack quilts in my dad's old navy trunk. It's in pretty bad shape but I can't bring myself to have it restored or changed in any way. It holds plenty of quilts--20 or so queen-sized quilts plus a few smaller ones. To protect these quilts, I put down some fairly heavy plastic and then covered that with a heavy cotton. My idea is that the plastic will keep water away from the quilts and the cotton will protect them from any dirt or wood damage from the trunk.

And a few ideas from my Pinterest board, "stacked, quilts"...
