    I've been making so many quilts that I've run out of room to store them. Most of them are Christmas presents so I can't give them away yet, but I've moved my sheets out of my chest and into a rubbermaid container (I hate the smell when I pull them out but it's better than the quilts smelling like it) and the 3 blanket chests in my house are full with blankets and quilts. We don't have a linen closet and my small closet doesn't have a shelf. And there's no spare bedroom. Any ideas of where to put them all? Because I don't want to stop making quilts

    get one of those bags where you vacuum out the air and it compresses everything. Then store under bed.

    Hey, I have 4 spare bedrooms...wish we were closer be happy to help out...wink wink. I would only keep the ones I love for myself!

    Forgot I was going to mention the storage bags as well. For the short time you need them they would be perfect.

    Just a thought- anyone you can trust with them at their house??

    Do you have a friend with a spare bedroom that would let you layer them on their bed until they area ready for wrapping?

    Be careful if you are using cedar chests. The cedar wood ate the quilt I had stored in one.
