Quilts should never be stored in plastic. Reason being is quilts need to breathe and plastic tends to draw and trap moisture. When moisture gets into fabric and stays for any length of time, you end up with mold and or mildew. Once either of these gets into fabric, they can be almost impossible to rid of. What I have found that seems to help in eliminating this problem is a Quilt Bag.
Creating a Quilt Bag made of 100% cotton fabric with a draw string at the top allows a quilt to be stored and kept clean while being able to breathe. Whether or not embellished with Hand Embroidery, appliqué of some sort, or even just the use of a matching fabric, the Quilt Bags created by Timeless Thread Design can and often do match the quilts that they are created for.
