    I found a great plastic see thru container to store any size fat quarter and your charm packs - they are 2.74 at Walmart See the pics

    They stack together which is very nice and you can see at a glance what you have!!!

    This is the label on the box

    Wow, nice! I hadn't seen those before. Are they with the other plastic storage containers in the store?

    Are these what they call the shoe box size? I've got about 3 dozen of them. One holds all the supplies for one personal sized quilt. I use mine mosly for other sewing stuff.

    No. They are narrower than a shoe box and alot longer - probably even a little taller!! They are 16 1/4 x 7 x 6 3/4.

    Jaciqltnok~As far as letting the fabric "breathe" I dont believe they are airtight. I will be checikng this - if they are I will be poking holes in them. Thanks for the tip!!! :D

    Also I have the price wrong ~~~they are 2.47 ~ for some reason I cant edit my original post!!

    This is great! As a re-cycle nut, I use the empty Baby Wipe
    boxes. They will stack...problem is you cannot see through them, so I sort by color.
