In our prior post, regarding the use of longarm quilting machines for amish quilt patterns, we addressed the need for good storage for your unfinished quilt tops.
Your Amish Quilts Patternsquilts are an heirloom to be treasured. I came across a gentleman a few days ago who collects “old quilts”. As I didn’t see any quilts in the room I ask him how he stores his quilts. It didn’t surprise me that he said he stores them “in a plastic bag” in a trunk . I am sure there are many who cherish old quilts but don’t seem to know that they are not storing quilts to preserve their life.
It is important to keep the quilt out of direct light. Sunlight can fade the fabrics and cause them to age a little faster. Plastic should be avoided. Moisture and collect in plastic and will cause damage as well. If quilt is to be folded it should have acid free paper rolled and place in the folds. and then wrap the quilt in a sheet. Doing this can extend the life of your Amish Quilts Patterns quilt. An enclosed quilt rack is wonderful for storing your quilts so they can be displayed to family and friends.
