Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin: We are gearing up for fall. There have been a couple of hard freeze scares, but so far we've dodged that bullet. All of the tomatoes are on the counters waiting to ripen so they can be canned, and next we turn our eyes toward apples, grapes, carrots and pumpkin. If you've never had a pumpkin pie with home canned pumpkin, you are truly missing out!

The urge to Start Another Quilt is overwhelming. I am a staunch supporter of the Un-Finished Objects (UFOs). I guess my hobby isn't quilting so much as it is starting projects!

This week the sale page features our Fall Themed Patterns.

Storing Your Quilts....

1. Quilts should be aired or vacuumed before storing. Use a low suction hand vac with a nylon screen to protect it from harmful pull. When airing, be sure the quilt is laying flat, protected from soil, and not in direct sunlight.

2. The ideal storage is a flat surface, properly lined with acid free material, large enough to have its own space.

3. When folding, use crumpled acid-free tissue in the folds for support. Refold the quilt every 3-6 months to minimize permanent fold lines. Rolling quilts is an option, but it does place stress on the entire quilt.

4. If the storage unit is made of wood or cardboard, it should be lined with several layers of washed, 100% cotton fabric. This is necessary to protect the fabric from chemicals in the wood or paper. Cotton liner should be washed semi-annually.

5. Covers of pre washed 100% cotton sheeting, muslin, pillow cases, or acid-free tissue paper are strongly recommended. These materials allow air to pass through and keep light and dust out. Plastic is not advised.

6. Keep the storage area clean and insect free. The herb Artemisia is a natural pesticide. Hang in the storage area or in a small bag. Do not let the bag touch the quilts!
