65+ Quilts In One Room!

What do you do with 65+ finished quilts in a 12x14 ft bedroom?? I don't have a clue either! :) Well....I am having company in a few days. I good online friend, Lisa and her family are coming for a visit from PA. They will be staying at the lake cabins just about 10 minutes away! So I have been cleaning! :)

My bedroom is VERY small and this where we sleep and also where I have to keep most of my quilting stuff! Today, I folded and restacked 65 quilts in front of the double windows. Not really anything else that I could do with them. And this doesn't count the 2 quilts that are on my bed now and the few others scattered throughout the house! Needless to say this room is very cramped! I love antiques so this room also includes antique bed, dresser and wardrobe and more!

This is a photo of the doors on the antique wardrobe open. This is my 73 quilt tops, that need to be quilted. The ones in the bags are the ones that already have the backing and batting with them and ready to quilt. The small door there has the other tops that have backings but doesn't have the batting. And the large door, under the bags, are the other quilt tops that do not have backing or batting ready for them yet!
Here is a photo that was take in the middle of the mess! This is some to the quilts thrown on the bed before I refolded and stacked them back.
Giggle.....Lisa, if you want to look through these quilts, you will have to fold and stack them back!!! I'm tired of messing with them! :) Just playing!
Anyway, I still am not finished with that room. I still have to try to do something with the closet and some fabric! Don't think that I will have everything that I want to have done before Thursday, but I don't think she is coming down to see how I clean house anyway! :) We will have lots of fun playing with quilty things.
I am feeling a lot better today! Thank the Lord. Almost back to normal.....fat and lazy! hehehe!

I'm so glad you are feeling better! And I know what you can do with 65 quilts - I'll make a road trip:) Is that 65 finished quilts PLUS your quilts that need quilted? You are so motivated!

HOLY MOLY BATWOMAN!!! You are a quilt making fool!! Of course I have to ask how old and long have you been doing this!!

Just amazing and here I'm happy with my few in the house - I give a lot of mine away!

Carol VR said...

If ever you run out of room I'd be happy to take any one of those quilts of your hands...LOL

Curious to know if whether putting them in front of the window will cause them to fade?!?
