I folded and packed up my quilts for QuiltCon today. Would you agree that there is something almost sacred about unfolding and folding a quilt? Especially when I am sharing a quilt with someone for the first time but even when I’m alone, the act of opening and closing a quilt whispers some sacred truth about the revelation of life’s moments and the hiding away of memory.
Practically speaking, I don’t know of any sure fire way to avoid creasing all together but to avoid worn creases in the center of my quilts I never fold them in half. Instead I start by folding the corners of my quilt into the center on the diagonal.
How do you fold your quilts? Your thoughts, experiences or insights on the act of folding?
