Do you know how to display, care and store your quilts?

Posted by Susan Dorchester on 30 April 2017 | 0 Comments

Do you run out of ideas for decorating and displaying your quilts in your home? I may have the answer for you. My "Display Your Quilts" online workshop gives you ideas and how-tos for this along with the very important information about how to care and store your quilts.

Basic quilt care should start when the fabric is brought home from the quilt shop. Do you wash your quilt fabric before you cut it up to make a quilt? Do the edges of the fabric come out frayed and tangled after washing? Have you had problems with the darker fabrics bleeding? These are just some of the items that will be discussed in this class, along with several display ideas with how-to photos.

My “Display Your Quilts” class is now on-demand to allow you to start the class as soon as you sign up.  You can read through the materials at your leisure, knowing the lessons will be available when you have time.  And if you have questions, I am only a mouse click away and I will respond as quickly as possible.

Here is a great display idea! This is a photo of 3 applique quilt blocks done by Ruth Blanchet. The blocks have simple frames around them which keeps the focus on the quilting.... And Ruth chose a wall display with a coordinating vase of flowers as part of the vignette. For more ideas and how-to’s, check out my “Display Your Quilts” class.
