Some people initially try to just keep it in the living room, keeping it on a couch so it can be easily used. But individuals quickly realize that this is not going to be a good long term solution. No matter how much instruction and scolding is given to kids, the quilt will frequently end up on the floor. This will get it dirty. And if it is stepped on over time it will eventually get torn. The other option is to simply store it in a closet.
A design wall is a place on a wall where we can hang units of a quilt. This permits the quilter to stand back and scrutinize the design before sewing the quilt. Quilters often dangle batting or plain white flannel on their design walls, because quilt blocks tend to stick to it effortlessly without pinning. A design wall is one of the tools that are of immense advantage to any quilt-maker.
In choosing the correct yarn, it is important that the correct kind be chosen. No one wants to do the work required to crochet a quilt and then have it not last very long because of a poor yarn choice. Worsted weight yarn seems to be the most popular type. It is important that instructions be kept regarding what needs to be done when it is necessary to clean the quilt so it is not ruined by incorrect cleaning. Many of the quilts are simply crotched blocks that are then put together with a tapestry needle. This is simple when something like a Nine Patch Quilt is made.
Probably the biggest advantage to using an online store for most people is the selection. Quilt racks are a niche product. Unless you can find a store that specializes in them, the selection in the typical store will usually be sparse. If you typically shop at a large discounter like Walmart, there will probably only be a few cheaply-made models available. This is fine if you are primarily looking to save money. But many people don`t like to scrimp on tacky furniture.
