    Hi new to posting here. I have done a few quilts for the Downey quits for kids. This is a dumb question but how do you mail yours back. It seems to get costly if you are sending back 2 or more quilts. Any suggestions? :?:

    Flat rate. Just fold them real tight to fit in a small flat rate box.

    Funny you should be asking that question now. I'm getting ready to mail some quilts back. I've already got the box. I need to see how many I can fit in one box. Remember if you stuff to many and then have to tape the box shut it voids the flat rate. Ask me how I know?

    Good to know that. I want to keep doing this and I dont mind purchasing the batting etc but the postage can get a little crazy.

    You might ask a few friends to make QFK kits, send them all back at one time and share the postage.
    QFK just sent me 4 kits which I shared with members of our quilt guild yesterday.
    UPS will usually be more economical when the package is over 5 pounds.

    Yes, and Fed-x is lower than both at times.

    How do you close the boxes if you don't tape them? Doesn't that just apply to the Priority Envelopes, that have built in adhesives?

    The boxes have an adhesive strip.
