    I store mine in something I bought from Walmart. It's a 5 shelving unit hanging piece with 40 pockets...

    THIS was a wonderful idea!! My heart leaped when I Googled the term "DVD storage bags" and saw what they looked like. They're PERFECT!! Thanks for the suggestion.

The price ranges depending where you get them. I have found mine in a local shopping catalog and the cost is $5.95 for 2, yes 2, bags. Do not buy CD storage bags, they are too small.

    Hi this is what I found to be a good storage for fat quarters. We purchased the two, two drawer units at IKEA also purchased the cube bookcase at IKEA It is nice to just pull the drawers all the way out and choose what I need

    I have these in my sewing room, 4 of them. Like she says works great for fq's and I also store my jelly rolls, charm packs, turnovers, any pre-cuts...Love mine, And if you need some, you can buy individual little canvas drawers that will also slide right in to the compartments..... great idea....

    Love the Wire basket as well.....that would work for kits.....

    My sister uses plastic shoe box totes and has them on shelves in a closet....you can see all of them lined up nicely....

    Isnt it fun organizing?

    Shoe cubbies work wonderfully for fat quarters -- also the skinny Billy cabinet from Ikea would do a great job. I've cut up quite a few of my FQ's into precuts, and find that I'm making a lot more scrappy quilts now because of that...a win-win situation.

    I love the shoe pigeon hole storage for fat quarters. I think Wal-Mart might be a little cheaper.

    My FQ's are kept in bins and tins (to protect from light and dust) on open shelving.
