Hello Friends! I hope you are well. Some of you wrote and asked what happens to my magazine featured quilts. 99.99% of the time they are returned to me after they are officially featured in various magazines. And so, I do have quite a stash of quilts (see my list of magazine featured quilts here). Recently I acquired a large bookcase to house some of my quilts… folded and all stacked up! You would probably recognize some of the quilts.
According to the lady from whom I bought this English made bookcase, it had been used in a store. The lady purchased the bookcase when the store went out of business, and brought it back to the States from Europe. She had it in her farmhouse kitchen for years, and recently sold it to me when her kitchen was updated. This bookcase is LARGE and TALL , and has proven to be very useful in storing some of my quilts.
I draped my Monkey Around quilt at the front one of the shelves, and added a cross stitch piece to break up the monotonous look of stacked quilts to make things look a bit more attractive.
So, I am curious to know how you store your stash of quilts. Please share your ideas, as I am always looking for ways to store quilts creatively and beautifully.
A huge part of what I do as a quilt designer is pattern writing. I have actually been doing nothing but pattern writing for the last 2 1/2 weeks! I am quite anxious to actually sew on my machine again. Meanwhile, besides pattern writing, I have liked having my “under the weather” little one being home from school the last couple of days.
Thanks for stopping by! I was able to squeeze in a photo shoot of more quilts today, and hope to be able to share them with you soon! Hugs to you all!
