If you didn’t read the saga of the ridiculously lost quilt, you really should. It’ll make you laugh. Or cry. Either way, click back one post. before you read this one.
These days I’ve got my quilts mostly rolled up by type. Portraits, abstracts, class samples, nature, etc. One brilliant idea (came from Laura Wasilowski) is to pin tags to the back of each quilt with it’s name. They all hang out so I can see which quilt is there without unrolling it.
This has sort of worked, but it doesn’t solve my missing quilt problem. The hang tag strings also get horrifically tangled as I unroll the bundle.
I could tuck them all in. I think what I’m going to do is use one index card tucked into the end of the roll. It will have all the quilts listed, but I can make a note if it is out traveling somewhere.
Systems take time to set up. And sometimes they make a mess. But you learn as you go and pretty soon they are saving you lots of time and heartache..
How do you store your quilts and more importantly –
how do you keep track of where they are?
