|Chained to Colour - First real scrap quilt finished in 1999.|
We are redoing our bedroom and cleaning it out. We bought a king size bed and needed to move out the old and clean for the new. My husband and I took turns with the vacuum. He would be upset if he knew I took this photo let a lone post it for all to see.
|Green and Blue quilt is from my mom, made about 1999.|
It is taller then normal so you do not need to fold the quilts as many times. Great for show quilts and large wall hangings. I try not to fold them or change how I fold them often. I try not to fold in half down the centre because everyone else folds down the centre and that is the line the quilts will wear out first.
I spotted this under the pile. I forgot I had it. It can from the same lady I got the rack from. It is hand sewn and old. I will have to get a full shot photo someday. I have never taken any photos of it. Hexies.
Look! Our new Bed with new sheets and freshly washed Quilt. And the room is really clean too. Now I know why a person should do spring cleaning - cleaning in the heat is not fun. Note for next time do this kind of job in April or early May. Better yet, do it in January when you just can not warm up (maybe not drying quilts outside).
