A New Way to Fold Quilts!

Some while ago, Ann met a quilter who folds her quilts on the bias, instead of the way most of us do. This type of fold prevents creases from forming on our quilts so is a valuable piece of knowledge. You can view Ann’s folding directions by visiting her blog.
I have applied her method to a double/full-sized quilt made in the mid 1980s and given to us as a most welcome and cherished Basket quilt. Ann recommends laying your quilt on the floor or a table, but I had to use a bed. Here are the photos of my folds.
As you can see, all folds are on the bias, preventing permanent creases in our quilts. They fold quite flat and can be stacked on shelves much more easily.
You may have already learned this method. If so, please leave comments about your experiences with it.
