    How do you old your FQ's? I ordered some from Connecting Threads. They came laid out on top of each, folded in half, and then in half again. I'm used to them coming all folded up. Should I fold them differently, so I can see them better? Or should I leave them as they are?

    I always refold mine so I know exactly what I have. Otherwise I'll forget.

    Mine are all folded, refolded into about 5" square, then stacked by color,
    theme, or project I have planned.

    I hate to think of how big of a bowl I'd need - Paul Bunyan size anyone??

    Looks like we have the same problem. ;) Got my CT order yesterday.
    I think I will use Lneal's method and put everything in a tote or stack on a shelf.

    I have to refold mine. I have shelves and things tend to fall unless everything is folded the same size. I like for everything to LOOK neat (even when it isn't) and I like handling the new stuff, so I refold, stack and shelve anything new. It's my way of playing till I can pull it down and cut into it.

    I fold them repeatedly in half, adjusting the last folds a little if needed so they all are the same size, with the last fold being a little wider than the other direction.
    Then I store them (with the last fold up) in a standard size shoe box. It is easy to see what I have, and keep them all together in a compact space. The shoe boxes also stack well, as the folded FQ's are just about as tall as the box is deep.
