It Only Takes a Minute to Turn a Floppy Bundle Into a Pretty Presentation!
Once your beautiful quilts are done, do you struggle with how to present them to those you made them for? Simply folding a quilt the standard way creates a floppy handful that’s hard to wrap or to otherwise give neatly.
However, they can be folded into neat packages that look great and stay together. The folding method, from Julie Hirt at Six Two Seven Handworks, is simple to do yet secures a quilt so it’s easy to present. Once it’s folded, wrap the quilt, simply tie a bow around it, or even tuck a card into the front flap.
The flap on the front displays a bit of the backing, making for a more interesting presentation. Plus, it only takes a few minutes to fold a quilt into a lovely package.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
