Alita. Quilt Display. September 02nd , 2017.
Some people initially try to just keep it in the living room, keeping it on a couch so it can be easily used. But individuals quickly realize that this is not going to be a good long term solution. No matter how much instruction and scolding is given to kids, the quilt will frequently end up on the floor. This will get it dirty. And if it is stepped on over time it will eventually get torn. The other option is to simply store it in a closet.
You may have a number of quilts but need to either store or hang them for display. You then need quilt racks which are available in various styles. There are also quilt shelves and clamps which help to hang the quilts without damaging them. For those of you who have an heirloom quilt which you would like to store or display prominently, you can purchase the wonderful quilt racks that are available at various online sources.
When you want to use unique quilt blocks on your project, consider using Swarovski crystal rhinestone designs. Be the first person in your quilting circle to use these unique quilting embellishments. They add immediate and easy value to your quilt and are available in many different designs. You can also have custom quilting blocks made with crystal rhinestones that will compliment your quilt`s design or theme.
A design wall is a place on a wall where we can hang units of a quilt. This permits the quilter to stand back and scrutinize the design before sewing the quilt. Quilters often dangle batting or plain white flannel on their design walls, because quilt blocks tend to stick to it effortlessly without pinning. A design wall is one of the tools that are of immense advantage to any quilt-maker.
For example, the soft baby flannel that may be used in the piecing of a clown`s hat may evoke memories of a toy that the quilter`s son once played with in the nursery. The soft pink cotton that once was the out grown nightgown of a clumsy toddler is now the ballerina`s skirt in a children`s quilt of a graceful little girl, who grew up and now loves to show her Mommy how much she loves to dance, instead of crawling around the house. Or the blue jean train on the newly finished children`s quilt which was once a little boy`s first pair of dungarees. Tonight, when he goes to bed, and hugs his handmade children`s quilt, the story can be told again about the little train on that special children`s quilt, a keepsake for years to come, with a story to tell.
