I hate to admit it, but I don't have a lot of quilts displayed in my house. Considering I am part owner of a collection that exceeds 100 quilts! I have a few quilts on my kids' beds and a few little things here and there but,what to do with larger quilts when I don't want to hang them on the wall or have them all over the place. Myra gave me this idea one day, out of necessity. We were packing up from a quilt show, she rolled the quilts and stuck them in a bucket (they would take up less room that way). So off to the store I went and bought this basket and rolled my quilts and change them up every now and again. I really like the way it looks, especially by my wood stove. I just thought I would share in case any of you are looking for a new way to display your projects.

On another note...the winners of the charity contest are... Diane & Mary Grace. Ladies, could you please email me your mailing info? To the rest of you, I am so sorry we couldn't send you all fabric. I know all the charity's are worthy.

Cori, I like that idea. Since "I keep all my quilts", LOL, I too will have to look at rolling them. Thanks again for a terrific weekend as always.

I love the idea of rolling quilts like that to display them. I do that with towels and washcloths in the bathroom and love the way it looks.

You two are so very generous and kindhearted and I am so grateful to be receiving quilt supplies from you for this local charity. I'll email you right away. Thank you so much.

I have 2 baskets of rolled quilts in my family room that everyone who comes over knows they can wrap up in when watching TV. We invite friends over to watch ballgames and many of them get used that way. An added bonus...everyone can oooh and aaah over them too.
