Storage Solution Found

I was cleaning out a closet in the guest room. I found some banners and small quilted wallhangings folded on one of the shelves. We all know that folding quilted items can cause a crease and wear and tear on the fabric threads. I have large quilts stored in a few dresser drawers and one hall closet (yes, I have many quilts).

What could I do to store these items without folding them? I may have seen this somewhere in the past, but a light bulb went on when I saw all the plastic hangers that came out of the closet! I could easily cut the bar across the bottom in half and slip the sleeve of each item on a hanger. (My husband let me use his mega-type dremel saw because he thought a small craft saw would take too long.) They could hang in the back of the closet and ready when needed.





Have you come up with a clever or easy way to store your quilted items? I'm always interested in a helpful suggestion on how to store my quilts.

Val discussed appreciating where we are in our creative journey in life HERE. Maybe my cleaning and purging made me appreciate this post.
