When possible, Wee Possibilities uses regenerative design practices with fabric. This means that when textile fabric of exceptional quality or a with unique design becomes available, that fabric is purchased and repurposed for use in some quilt designs. The upcycled fabric in Wee Possibilities’ quilts is always new and has never been used in any capacity before. My goal is to leave a positive impact on our environment and prevent textile waste and the use of raw materials in creating new products. It also allows me to offer small batch designs that will likely not be found anywhere else.
tips for storing Your child’s heirloom quilt
It is important to store the quilt in acid free materials. There are acid free preservation papers and boxes made specifically for storing and preserving textiles. While nostalgic, hope chests and cedar boxes are not ideal for quilt storage because the wood produces an acid that can ruin the quilt. Mothballs can also be harmful for quilts.
Rolling the quilt is preferred over folding. If you fold the quilt, take it out and refold it differently a few times a year.
Quilts need to breath and stay dry, so storing the quilt in an area that doesn’t have wide temperature or humidity fluctuations is best. Plastic storage isn’t ideal since it traps moisture.
Keep the colors on the quilt bright by storing it in a dark without sunlight.
