Quilt Tips From Quilters Around The World

Quilt Care

I store my many wall hangings by wrapping them around the paper tubes from wrapping paper (right side out). Then I place them in a pillow case and that keeps them from rolling off the shelf. - Carol in Michigan

How to get blood out of your quilts: Dip a cotton ball in hydrogen peroxide and rub it in to stain and it will vanish." - Lora in Oklahoma

Roll your quilts on wrapping paper tubes covered with acid free tissue paper to make them safe for your quilt. - Rhonda in Washington

Save your empty cardboard tubes from Christmas wrapping paper and roll your quilts onto the tubes to store them. The quilts will not wrinkle on the closet shelf. - Anne in California

Don't fold quilts in half and then in quarters--the dent in the middle shows quickly.  Fold it in thirds horizontially and then vertically.  There is less less wrinkling if the pieced side is out. - Nancy in Florida
