    Hi Everyone!

    I wanted to share something I used, and even though it may not be a new idea, it was for me. I have many, many quilts that were pieced by my Mom’s mom and the quilting finished years later by my Dad’s Mom. These are treasures to me. I even have some I have quilted. They were all in a plastic bag in the top of a closet, as there was so many. I wanted to display them, but had no room for all of them.

    A few years ago, my Aunt ordered a quilt case, which was several hundred dollars. It was small, and still all the quilts couldn’t be seen. I had recently moved and had a curio cabinet that was suddenly empty. I took the glass shelves out, and folded the quilts so a design could be seen.

    Now, I am able to look at them, and remember my Grandmother’s. Sometimes, when you look around you realize you have what you need. I used what I had. There is a glare from the glass, but hopefully, you get the idea.

    Sherry, I love this.

    So often you see quilts that are so treasured stuffed into a closet out of view. This is a great solution. I bet every time you walk by it you smile. Thanks for sharingSmiley Cat
