    Hi everyone I just wanted to share with you the great gift that my Uncle gave me.
    My Aunt died two years ago and on a recent visit to see Uncle he showed me a plethera of fabric and things that his wife had left. He gave me boxes of fabrics included in one of the boxes were an abundance of quilted blocks I was so dumbfounded at the work she had done that I decided to panel all the blocks together to make a form of memory quilt and I must say it is progressing well. When it is complete I will post a piture for you all to see her work as everything was made by hand.
    But I am having difficulty in storing all the fabric and woundered if any one out there could advise me on a supplier of acid free fabric boards as space is at a premium. UK supplier would be great. Thanks everyone.

    I think someone on here suggested wrapping folded fabric around a ruler like you would around a fabric board and then slip the ruler out. Would that be an option?
