Question: What makes a vintage quilt valuable?

The older they are and the better shape theyre in, the higher price tag you can set. If youre looking to make serious cash from quilts youve inherited, though, youll need them to be in “museum-quality.” That means not just a pristine condition, but connected to a specific era of history.

How do you clean a vintage quilt?

Wash it with quilt wash on a gentle cycle in a front-loading machine, if possible. Rinse and spin twice to remove all residues. To dry, lay the quilt flat on a sheet outdoors or on a bed. If drying it outdoors, cover the quilt with another sheet to protect it from passing birds.
