    I confess!! I have tons of patterns. I use the clear sleeves and have them in binders.

    I download and save online and when I want them I send the file to my Kindle Fire. The Kindle is the same as having a book in my sewing room. I rarely print out patterns since I got the Kindle Fire. No paper to keep up with and lots less ink to buy. I love the technology we have now. It saves time and money when used right.
    Got fabric?

    Same here. It's my computer that's about to explode. LOL

    I used to print them out but was using way too much ink and then not making the quilts. Now I just save them on the computer and look through them when I want a pattern. Of course it's not easy to find the one I want, have to open each one to see what it is.

    I knew there was a good reason we invested in a laser printer; less cost per page. Now I can print off even more patterns.

    I print them out, save the links on the computer, have them saved on pinterest, and cut out pics from catalogs. Do they make a drug for this?
