    i haven't done it but seen where they cut down comic cards and fold the fat quarter on it and the person used the old cd holders she had slipped them into those.. seen an other put them in small crate type boxes fold where the fold is up so they could easily see the fabric and pull it out like a filing system in the old days. also seen them folded that way put in plastic bins that roll under the bed for those that have a lot of them. I have a few since I just started collecting them too so I have been looking for ideas too. those are the ideas i've liked best so far. I like the roll under the bed idea so far the best and will probally grow more so I won't out grow it so soon. also i am limited with space here

    I use the totes for DVD's. They have a handle, are flexible, hold a lot of fat quarters and have a handle for carrying. They are also pretty cheap and can be stored easily and keep your fat quarters clean. They are visible, clean, easy to handle and you can see what's available without even opening the case. Check out all those "unwanted" catalogs because they almost always have them. Just make sure the square size is large enough - usually 5 1/2" to 6".

    I buy plastic shoe boxes at Dollar Store and put one color in each box. I leave the lids off. I use the lids to hold pieces of blocks I'm working on. They stack nicely and keep me organized.

    ps at the moment I only have 4 of fatquarters.one row in from the right. The rest are scraps by color, strips, blocks, bindings, circles, half squares,
    etc.
