1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / How to store quilt in progress? on: July 20, 2014 06:23:18 AM
Hi All!

I'm new to the quilting forum here and am working on my first quilt. I am hand quilting it together now and am really enjoying the process. My question is: What do I do with it when not actively quilting it? I have two kids and a husband and it's always getting moved around - but I have nothing to keep it in. I feel like it would safer if it was in something. Any advice? Thanks!

I've gotten sharpie marker off of wood with a Magic Eraser. I don't know if that would work with walls though. You may have to primer it. You can get Kilz primer at any hardware store, it cover's pretty much everything and comes in oil based and latex.

My suggestion is thrift store sheets for curtains and wall hangings. Anything with little flowers is really sweet in a little girls room. And I'd paint that changing table white.
Here's a tutorial for making crib sheets. http://stardustshoes.blogspot.com/2008/05/crib-sheet-tutorial.html
I do these with cheap fabric from Joann (1.99/yd or so).

A pocket organizer wall hanger thing would be handy too (and would cover up some wall).

I've heard of using that puff paint stuff to make no slip socks. Maybe it would work for rugs too?

I love the Rita's Rump pattern. http://handmadebyrita.blogspot.com/2007/10/httpwww.html
I make them as pockets with fleece in the outside and flannel on the inside. I make the inserts out of microfiber towels from the automotive section at Costco. The fleece is still a touch leaky so best for around the house. PUL would be better.

I made my little guy a giraffe costume one year. I got a pattern for the assorted animals and just added giraffe ears, tail and paws.

I suppose you could test it by pouring some water on it and seeing how it does. I've had some luck making diaper covers out of fleece. They aren't completely bulletproof, but they are fine for around the house.
