Storage Tips for Quilters

(1 Votes)


  • Use a sturdy drying rack to display several quilts in progress.
  • Un-used pizza boxes, purchased from a supplier, make handy storage for quilters. They stack well and one folded box will hold an entire set of quilt blocks. Write details of the project on the outside on the box. For a project on the go, add thread, needles, scissors and other suppplies. 
  • If you can't get your hands on pizza boxes, use photo boxes sold at craft stores with the handy labels at the front.
  • Use an empty Altoids tin to hold pins.
  • Several, small glass jars, such as baby food jars, work well for holding needles, pins, button and other items. Use the jar tops to create pin cushions.
  • When sewing small quilt pieces, line up the pieces in order on a corkboard on the wall behind your sewing machine.

I like the pizza box idea but I'm concerned about acid being in the cardboard. Could it be that because there used for food there is no acid? Dose anyone know? If so, please write and let me know.

When you get take-out or stuff from the deli - save the clear plastic containers. Wash them out and use to sort pre-cut pieces of fabric or your own "kits". You can write the size with Sharpie on top of the container.

If you take plain flannel material and put on a piece of cardboard that stands up on a table you can then put your pieces of quilt to see how you want to put them together. Works well!!
