    This made me laugh! Kind of like the rubber raft that got inflated accidently in the middle of the living room floor!!

    When tabs cut the plastic just duck tape, works like a charm

    Thanks for sharing. I have not used space bags but it sounds like I should.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I had to look them up on Amazon. Looks like a great idea.

    I love the story about trying to sneak in the 'hay bale'! I have done that before with large objects which could not be moved into the house under prying eyes of DH - I shudder to think that when he retires he'll have even more time to try to micro-manage me. LOL

    I keep my leftover batting squished in kitchen garbage bags in the closet and stuffed between books and boxes on the closet shelves, and just yesterday I went to grab a remnant for a table runner, and what was tucked inside but a dried-up old acorn! I'd better pull it all out and find the nest!

    Last week it suddenly struck me to use space bags to store my batting in. Now I get 4-5 times more batting in the same amount of space as without the bags. DUH, why did I not think of this before.

    Don't know if any one else has problems posting. When I try to submit it freezes and says "Quilt Board has stopped responding".... Very frustrating
    Great idea-I use them to store rarely used clothing/extra blankets in summer, etc-but never thought of batting! I also have the same problems posting-freezes the same way about 50% of the time I try to post. Might happen this time too-we'll see!! Many suggestions were offered, (see my thread posted about it in the last week), but haven't sorted it out yet.
