A great storage solution



The stacks of quilts in my house had started to resemble the Leaning Tower of Pisa. So when I found this old cabinet for sale at a local printing company that is converting to an AlphaGraphics, I knew exactly what I could use it for.

Our house is 1916 (that’s original wainscotting on the wall), and I like furniture with some history to it that suits the age of house. This cabinet, originally used to display merchandise in the store, is 4' long x 2' deep x 3' high, with glass on all sides and bevelled glass on top. It has two sliding doors, so it’s easy to get the quilts in and out. It’s tucked back in a corner of a room, away from the windows, so the fabrics won’t fade. It holds most of my collection of traditional quilts, keeps them from getting dusty, while still allowing me to see and enjoy the quilts.

  2. Waaah - I want one. My traditional(antique quilts and tops) are in the closet! This is a beautiful way to display them: like looking at candy in the display case.
