Refold your Quilts

This is an antique feed sack. When preparing to wash it, I noticed how dirty it was on the fold line. It also had some tiny holes on the fold line. This is a good example of what can happen if we don’t we refold our stored quilts occasionally. I heard a quilt appraiser advise folding quilts diagonally and not square like we tend to do.


A diagonal folding technique helps eliminate a traditional fold line.
