ONLY if you keep the quilts in their own pillow cases...or line the trunk/chest with heavy fabric..DO not glue it it...DO not paint or seal the wood with urethane! Simply staple or use decortive tacks to line it with something like a heavy duck cloth or make a liner out of recycled denim...it is there to protect your quilts from getting yellowed due to the gas/oils the wood leaches out!
