Taking Care of Your Quilts

Rustic quilts and applique quilts have long been a part of our culture. Many have treasured memories of applique quilts that lay across grandmother’s bed or rustic quilts that hung on mother’s wall. Some are lucky enough to still have those rustic quilts and applique quilts in their possession due to the good quilt care taken by ancestors.

Some of the most beautiful applique quilts available today can be found at cabinplace.com. The patterns and colors are designed to perfectly compliment rustic cabin décor and these rustic quilts and applique quilts are made with extra durable fabric with a high stitch count to aid in durability. If cared for properly, rustic quilts can last generations.

The first thing to remember about quilt care is quilts must not be treated like any other blanket or throw. They’re just as much a work of art as anything you’d hang on your wall. To extend the life of your rustic quilts and applique quilts, don’t over-wash them. Cleaning once a year is sufficient quilt care for most quilts.

When it’s time to wash your rustic quilt you’ll first want to check for colorfastness of material. To check for colorfastness, wet a white cotton cloth with hot water and rub it over the quilt. If color comes off, your rustic quilt needs to be dry-cleaned.

If you are able, hand-washing your rustic quilt is best, although washers without an agitator can be used for quilt care. If your rustic quilt has rips or places where the fabric has separated, repair these areas before you wash. If you have an applique quilt, have them repaired before washing.

Use cold water with a liquid detergent and add 1/2 c. vinegar to keep colors bright. After your rustic quilt has been washed, take care when transferring the wet quilt. A sheet used as a sling is helpful to prevent the seams from pulling. It is best to lay quilts flat to dry. If you want to take your rustic quilt outside to dry, cover it top and bottom with a sheet to prevent sun damage.

Using good quilt care techniques for your rustic quilt or applique quilt from cabinplace.com will help preserve it for generations and give your children something to treasure.

Should You Have Your Rustic Quilts Appraised?

We’re always surprised when we ask someone with beautiful rustic quilts whether they have had a quilt appraisal done and they’ve never even heard of such a thing. The fact is, many quilts are quite valuable, and there are several good reasons to consider having a qualified professional appraiser give you a quilt appraisal.

The main reason many people have a quilt appraisal done is to establish the value for insurance purposes. For many of us who have received rustic quilts which have been handed down over the generations, no amount of market value could describe the real value these precious heirlooms have to us. In addition to being ties to our family history and their historic value, they are valuable to us for entirely personal reasons.

Of course, such items are irreplaceable. Even still, many rustic quilts, and especially older ones if they are in good condition, have a high market value which is worth insuring. Without a quilt appraisal, most insurance companies will only compensate you for the cost of the materials in your rustic quilts, should they become damaged. Obviously, the materials aren’t worth anything near what even a brand new rustic quilt is worth, much less an antique.

It’s also important to have a quilt appraisal performed if you plan to sell or donate your rustic quilts. Knowing what your quilt is worth can help you establish a price with a potential buyer. It can also help ensure that you get full credit for tax purposes if you give your quilt away as a charitable gift.

If you do decide to have a quilt appraisal on your rustic quilts, make sure to have a certified appraiser do the appraising. The most common certifying body for quilts is the AQS. An AQS certified appraiser can give you an accurate value for your old or new rustic quilts based on current market trends and a general knowledge of quilts and the history of rustic quilts.

How To Make Squares For Cabin Quilts

It can be wonderful to collect the odd scrap of material here and there, until you have enough to make your own quilt; and doing this with special items like baby clothes for a baby’s quilt can be even more wonderful. But if you want an authentic log cabin quilt, you’ll need to follow a specific pattern when creating the squares. Log cabin quilts are unique quilts that involve many different colors and sizes of squares, all perfectly lined together to make one beautiful and intricate square. And this pattern is repeated over and over again. These quilts are the perfect addition to any cabin décor, and the squares are really easy to make too!

First, start collecting fabric in seven different colors. For a really authentic look, try to use the same color but different tones of that color, or that color in different patterns that look nice when placed together. Then begin with the lightest color and cut it into 2″ x 2″ squares. Then cut the second-lightest tool into another 2″ x 2″ square. Create a 1/2″ seam with the two squares and sew them together. Then to prevent bunching and to make it easier to complete the rest of the square for your log cabin quilt, iron the seam so that both squares lay flat. Again using the second-lightest color, cut a 2″ x 3 1/2″ square. Sew this new square to the bottom of material that has the same color and the lightest color. Iron the seam open once again.

You’ll then need to use a third fabric to cut one square that’s 2″ x 3 1/2″, and one that’s 2″ x 5 1/4″. Sew the smaller piece to the along the left side of the small square you’ve already made, iron the seam and then sew the larger piece of the third fabric to the top of the log cabin quilt square you’re creating. Again, finish that piece by ironing the seam open.

With the fourth fabric, you’ll want to do much the same as you did with the third fabric, but the pieces will be slightly larger and you’ll need to attach them onto the right side of the quilt square. One of these pieces will be 2″ x 5 1/4″ and the other will be 2″ x 7″. Sew the smaller piece to the right side of the square, and the larger piece onto the bottom of the quilt square.

The fifth fabric will be used to cut one piece that’s 2″ x 7″ and one that’s 2″ x 8 1/2″. The smaller piece needs to be sewn along the left edge of the main cabin quilt square, while the larger piece should be sewn along the top. Just like the other squares, after you’re finished sewing each onto the main square, iron the seam open.

The sixth fabric needs to be cut into one square 2″ x 8 1/2″ in size and one in 2″ by 10″ in size. Use the smaller piece to sew along the right side of the quilt square and then iron the seam open. Then using the larger piece, sew it along the bottom and iron the seam. Lastly, use the seventh, darkest piece of fabric to create one 2″ x 10″ square and one 2″ x 11 1/2″ square. Sew the smaller piece along the left and iron seam the open and then sew the larger piece along the top and iron the seam again.

Continue to do this until you have enough cabin quilt squares to sew together an entire quilt of any size you please!

Quilt Ladders Are A Great Way To Display Rustic Quilts Learn How To Make Yours!

Do you have lots of beautiful quilts, but don’t have enough beds to display them on? It’s a shame to hide stunning quilts in a closet, especially when you can use something such as a quilt ladder to display them. Quilt ladders are just that a four or five step ladder that you can hang your rustic quilts on to display them and use them not only for warmth, but also as art! Unfortunately, quilt ladders can cost a small fortune in catalogues, and even online. Luckily, it doesn’t cost very much to make one yourself!

Before you begin building your own quilt ladder, you’ll need to gather these materials: 2 72″seasoned wood rails, 2″ in diameter; 5 1/2′ seasoned wood for rungs, 1 1/2″ in diameter; drill with bits; saw; 16 penny nails; wood pencil; measuring tape; and sandpaper.

Start by laying out the two wood rails beside each other. Mark one indicating that it’s the left rail. Measure and mark each rail at 12 inches up, 28 inches up, and 44 inches up. Using a 1/8″ bit, drill a pilot hole at each of these marked points. Then you’ll need to cut both the top and bottom rungs. Measure the top rung out to be 16″ and cut it at that mark. Measure the bottom rung out to be at 24″ and cut it at that mark.

Using the pilot holes you drilled as placement guides, place the ladder rungs in between the wooden rails. Then set the top and bottom rung in place. At this point, you’ll need to measure out how long the middle rung will need to be and cut a piece of wood to fit. Once that’s done, you can then sandpaper and file the rungs to get them to fit together nicely. It’s important to remember that a bit of a rustic look here will work. You will after all, be placing rustic quilts onto it. But, you also don’t want there to be very large gaps between the rungs and the rails.

Next you’ll need to drill a 1/8″ hole in the end of each of the rungs. This hole should be slightly longer than the fastener. Then place the top rung in place and nail it in with a penny nail. Then nail the middle rung in place, and then the last rung.

After this, just run your hand over the entire quilt ladder to see if there are any rough edges. While again, it’s fine to be rustic, you also don’t want your beautiful rustic quilts to snag on the ladder that they sit on. Once the ladder is smooth, you can then stain the quilt ladder, paint it, or design it in any way you choose. One of the greatest things about making your own quilt ladder is that you can allow it to really show off your own personal taste and style!

Still need some rustic quilts to hang on your new quilt ladder? We have tons that will be the perfect finishing touch! Make sure you check them out!
