    Great job! I have most of my UFOs the same way. Love those boxes, I caught them on sale the other week for $2.50. Was excited bought some more at that price, go Micheals!

    Looks wonderful. Most of my fabric is neatly folded in the cupboard with the rest of the material for the project, some are in boxes like yours. Outside of that, my organization method is to sew it up. If I have to move it again I'll lose something because I put it away where it should be, but think it should be somewhere else and can't find anything under my nose.

    Great price. I was able to get some on sake at Joann's fir 5.99 and the
    Used my 25% off total purchase coupon so that worked also. I look for
    Sales but had nit thought of Michaels, I am thinking they soul be in their
    Scrapbook area.

    Thanks for the organization idea - I have some boxes similar to those, but not enough for my UFO's. I will have to go looking - half the battle of getting them done is getting everything together in one place. My quilting buddy needs help with her organization, I keep telling her we need to go into her room together one morning and start making project piles down the hallway ... she is a little afraid to use her stash sometimes for fear she will use something that she needs for one of her buried projects. Of course, several of my projects this year came from her cleaning out UFO's. As a matter of fact, I finished two of them and gifted them back to her - ALL DONE! She was thrilled to have them back all finished.

    I love those boxes, but I have scrap booking and rubber stamping in mine, so you just showed me what to do with the rest of the ones I bought a Michaels, hmmm, I may need to buy some more, I have my fabric on fabric boards, so these should go together with them very well
    happy to have enough stash fabric at all time

    That looks so nice and now you can just decide what project you feel like working on and find it so easily. It must feel good to get organized.

    Just wanted to report that my organization with the containers has already paid off. Our youngest daughter just told me that her friend was having a baby in February. I remembered I had four 15" Benito block made with pink girly fabrics...opened the container and additional matching fabrics right there for borders. This is the resulting flimsy in a few short hours
