How to Care and Store Your Country Quilts

Treat your handcrafted and heirloom quilts with loving care, and they’ll remain vibrant and beautiful for years to come. Here are three helpful tips:

  • Never display your quilt in direct sunlight.
  • When storing your quilt, do not fold it. Place clean tissue paper over the quilt and gently roll it into a bundle. This way you can avoid facing and wear on the folded edges.
  • Cedar-lined chests make the ideal storage place for your most prized country quilts.
