    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!

    What a family legacy you possess!! They're all wonderful, but I'm intrigued by the tie quilt!! Can't wait to see a full picture and any measurements that you can give, such as how much of the tie did she use. Hand stitched or machine, etc.

    Another Okie. YEAH!!! Your quilts are amazing! Just gorgeous. You are very fortunate to have them so you can admire them often. Such sentimental value there!!! Your quilt Chest is beautiful as well. I know you must be so proud of these beauties. Wouldn't it be grand if these older quilts could talk & tell about the process of it being made or about the maker? I have always thought that. Thank You for sharing.

    Those are all beautiful quilts, but the necktie quilt is absolutely gorgeous, like WANNABEE, I'd like to see the whole quilt if possible, I'll bet it's stunning.

    What an awesome privilege to be keeper of the family quilts. I love them and love the displace case.
    Where did you get the quilt cabinet you keep them in?
