Valuable Tips for Quilt Storage from Martha Spark

-- Swim Noodles are safe to use to roll our quilts that are no wider than the 48" noodle length.
 

-- Clear plastic containers are safe for fabrics storage IF the letters PP and/or PE appear on the bottom next to the triangle.

-- It is not recommended to use Space-Saver type plastic bags for long term quilt storage as the compression of the fibers will cause strain and breakage over time.  A better option is to wrap quilts in clean, white cotton sheets as textiles need to breath.
