    What a perfect way to store them!!! They can be seen but protected! Much better that inside a closet.

    I love the necktie quilt!

    I 'store' my hand me down quilt that my Grandmother made on a bed so it doesn't get fold lines. It is under a store bought quilt to keep the sun off of it. When I have visitors, it magically appears and the visitors get to use it.

    Don't know what I'd do if I had as many antique quilts as you have! I have enjoyed looking at them and would probably ewww and ahhh over them if I got to see them for real!
