Giveaways + Storage Ideas

2 of my fellow Gumtree Designers are currently having give aways. Jenny is having a BIG one to celebrate the launch of her "Christmas Story" Quilt.

And Dawn has had a change of name. She is now known as "As Sweet As Cinnamon" to celebrate she is also having a giveaway.

There hasn't been any sewing going on here this week - Life for us has had a few hiccups. But I did buy these 2 baskets from Office Works. They are plastic coated and quite economical at $11.98 each.



I though that they would be perfect for storing my fat quarters. They currently sit in a stack on my shelf but are always toppling over when I want one from the botom of the pile.

So now I have them all displayed in my new baskets.




How do you store your fat quarter stash?

They look so pretty displayed like that! I started out having my fabrics in a basket simalar to yours, until I found a white tail in amongst all my lovely fabric.We now have the pest man come and visit!! As my stash has grown, I use large plastic storage containers with lids now, and also have a glass doored cabinet...where I keep all my favourites. Lisa

Your FQ's look beautiful in the white baskets. I also store my in those ugly plastic containers.

Fee those baskets are wonderful - your fq's look delicious in them! Mine are all in plastic drawer units, where I have to dig through to find anything, lol.
I used to have one entire wall of shelving to store fabric on, but the fabric did topple when I went hunting. It was nice though seeing what I had at a glance. We took it out when I switched rooms.

What lovely baskets Fe and a great way to store your fat quarters in. I store mine in plastic baskets but nothing as nice to look at as yours.

i could never find the right fat quarter when I needed it, so last September hol's, I got to and bought four sets of plastic drawers and sorted all my FQ's into colours, labelled each drawer for a different colour, and now I know EXACTLY where they live!!!!
I like the look of your white woven ones though....tres chic! I could never keep it tidy enough though!

I too have some baskets but they are from the $2 shop, inexpensive and made in colourful plastic. I use them to store projects and others for fabric. Maybe I should invest in one or two lovely big baskets like yours.

I love the way you organized your fat quarters!

They look great - I didn't realize office works sold any cane baskets, but then we don't have one close to us here in Bundalong (Vic). Maybe one in Albury, but not sure??? I see you also enjoy having hens & gardening! Craftwork, hens & gardening are my sanity savers :)

Love the baskets - will have to check out my local Officeworks. I keep my fat quarters in pigeon holes in a bookcasey type thing I bought at Aldi. It has only small cubbies about 6 holes x 6 holes, just the right size for holding fat quarters!

I use a tall boy and the draws are packed full of fabric.
