    Hey- I get my pizza boxes from Pizza Hut - hope they don't read this!!!!!!!
    My husband and I eat all the pizza we order so I just ask for a large box to go. Works -- so far. I have several applique UFO's . I more I do, the better they look, but I am by no means a pro at it. I am in awe at some of the quilts I have seen at shows and in magazines. WOW.
    My husband is in the oil field and the co he works for bought a yard in Midland so they sent him to check it out and make sure all was well and I got to go with him. I was in a motel for 2 weeks - hence - I got a lot of sewing done. I brought a lot of food home with me that I can't find here in small town Arkansas. I haven't been able to talk him into driving back to buy more food; however, we have gone that far to quilts shows.
    Have a great day to all.

    Hi - I've just been on a short time. I'm still not real sure how this works. I think I answered on Vicki with info for you. Forgive me. I do have a stack of pizza boxes with UFO's in them. I don't belong to any guilds as I don't know of any close to me. I really do live in small town, USA. I also do pieced quilts, but the grandkids and daughter keep taking them as fast as I make them, which is not fast at all because I hand quilt. I may have to find someone to machine quilts some of my tops.

    Hi all,

    I also use the cardboard that comes under a 24 pack of water. These are usually a bit higher than pizza boxes and they don't have a lid, but work wonderfully well to stack, etc., when working on a quilt. Also, there is enough room for lots of fabric, plus a space for blocks. If you're using a pattern, it can lie on top and sort of help to keep the fabric clean.

    I use boxes from a company called Schwan's, it is a home delivery service. The boxes are sturdy, and depending on what I order, they are different sizes, some are really great for pre-cut strips. Also great for wrapping gifts in, as I never wrap anything in its original box, always put it in something else.

    Off the subject alittle but I save all plastic lids for use as templates. Butter bowl lids, coffee lids, sour cream lids and list goes on. I use these instead of paper piecing also. After I've joined my pieces I just pop it out.

    I like the pizza box Idea that would be great for stacks of finished squares. They would stay flat and not wrinkle. I also like shoe boxes and the other storage item I collect are those heavy plastic bags you get with things like curtains/ shower curtains/blankets/some bath and cosmetic products. Because they are mostly clear plastic and some even have Zippers. and are lots of sizes. Gift boxes like for shirts go on sale after the holidays for cheap and come in diff sizes!

    I still like my sport shoe boxes, I put a large rubber band around them and they don't empty if knocked around........for thread needles and small stuff I use the plastic school boxes.with a sticker with contents. :D

    I have one to top all the pizza boxes-a few weeks ago, Joanns was throwing away all of their display racks and plastic bins. My fellow vendors and I went dumpster diving and found some great stuff. The plastic bins that they hung on the wall for their smaller items were all stacked in the dumpster, so I grabbed a bunch not knowing what I would do with them.
    Well, they are perfect for my blocks that I'm working on and all of my smaller pieces of fabric(like fat quarters). They all stack very nicely on my shelves.

    What a find. I also grabbed other items from the dumpster, but haven't figured out what to do with all of them yet!!!!!

    Thought you guys would find this funny!!!!

    Wow Tricia what a score :mrgreen: My Hubby and I were in Butte on the 18th. Spent the day with his mom and took her to lunch up there at the Gold Rush. We sat in the bar and had a glass of wine before lunch as there was quite a line for the restaurant. I saw the stained glass above the bar and was trying to make a quick copy of the design by hand but a napkin doesn't allow for the best flowing line drawing. I vowed to come back and take a pic. ( I had left my camera at home) Thought the stained glass design would translate into a beautiful quilt design. Then we took a tour of up town Butte. First time I had been all the way up there. Quite the view. If I had more time (It was a spur of the moment trip) I would have tried contacting you. I remember you saying you had a quilt display somewhere in town but, not sure where, or if it would be in place on a Sunday :-) . Anyway I recommend checking out the stained glass if you get a chance.

    oh wow, I wish we could have met, I had brunch at the Gold Rush on the 16th. Such good food. I had my camera with me too, if I would have even thought of taken a pic inside. Just got some outside with the grandkids! Well, let me know the next time you are in Butte. We will definitely get together!

    Isn't Butte a neat place, such history!!
