When I got home from my travels, there was a big pile of boxes waiting for me.
The units each measure 10 1/2” height x 28” width x 65” length. Before I had these units, I simply folded my quilts up and keep them in tubs. This was OKAY but not ideal. With the new system, I can roll each quilt, wrap it, and store it.
I’d seen better plastic, but I did not know where to find it. Finally I figured it out. I’d been buying my plastic at the shipping store, when I should have been buying my plastic at the hardware store. Yep. This is the plastic you want. It can be used over and over again. Packing tape sticks to it, but it also easily peels off.
With my new plastic and the pile of boxes in the hallway, I knew it was time to properly pack all of my quilts for storage. I rolled each one up with the design facing out. This way I easily know which quilt is which.
One by one I wrapped and added each quilt to the storage unit.
I do store the slats in the storage units, but I do not store them with their quilt. I have found that if I roll the slat in with the quilt and store it that way, the slat makes a deep crease on the quilt. I can iron the crease out, but why not skip that step by storing things separately? If you want to learn more about my quilt hanging system, you can by clicking here.
I did this for ALL of my quilts not just the ones that had returned from shows.
