Quilt Storage

Vintage Pillow covers are perfect for short term seasonal Quilt Storage ! They are cotton and a bit more roomy than an standard contemporary pillowcase. Most that I have found have little ties that were used for keeping the pillow "in" the cover, I can fit several of smaller quilts and table runners or one larger quilt in one of these! I store mine after being cleaned and freshened from season to season rolled up with a little lavender sachet tucked inside and they are ready to go when needed to be used or hung for display. Besides they look really pretty and classic in a vintage cover, great for presenting a quilt as a gift too!
