    Over the years we've bought specialty dishes for holidays that we store in the attic when not in use. The Boxes & cardboard inserts are getting pretty ragged. Just found this great quilted storage solution that's going to the top of my to-do list!
    Here's the link for the free pattern

    My grandma used something similar and she also put fabric in between the pieces of dishware.

    I made these to hosue our dishes in the motorhome during storage and travel... they are easy to make up.....
    I used pinked edged felt for between the plates....
    I have seen ppl use coffee filters between the plates...but I liked a bit more cushion..

    What an excellent idea! I have my dishes stored in a plastic tote! This would be more secure for them! Thanks for sharing the link and pattern!

    If you're moving, pad the china with towels. Both china and towels get there clean. For everyday, I just use paper towels.
