    Saw great idea to store FQ's

    A friend went to the local goodwill and bought one of those disk storage units, the kind that turn. Hers is about 4 feet tall. She painted it to match her sewing room put some cute decals on it, and has all of her FQ's folded in it. You can see each one and the little storage unit only takes up a few inches of floor space. Thought it was worth mentioning here.

    It is a great id. The CD holders are the right size, I have been looking and haven't been able to find any used and the new ones are expensive. I was looking at Idea and they were more than the bookcases I got.

    Love this idea!! And it's just in time - I'm working on getting my new sewing room set up and was trying to figure out how to store fat quarters. I think I know how I'm going to do it now!! Thanks!

    I love this idea. I will look for one as soon as I can. It will free up some of my drawer space.

    Cute idea. I have limited floor space and use shoe cubbies from the big box stores on the back of my cutting table.

    That's a great idea. We've got one that's not being used so I think I'll confiscate it. Thanks for the tip!!!!

    Hum... this gives me all sorts of ideas! I have a couple of old tall CD holders from Ikea. I bet I could turn them sideways & mount them on the wall. I'd have to glue the shelves in place but this would be lots of storage space. Thanks for the thought!

    I wouldn't be without mine, I also have a larger one that swivels that I put ongoing projects in. The beauty of the CD tower is the small space that it takes up, oh and mine was free given me by a nephew who upgraded to a posher one

    With Netflix and the internet we really have no need for movies. I just boxed them up to donate to my daughters high school. That leaves me a beautiful empty rack. Darn have to go shopping for more fat quarters to fill it up. I shall suffer in silence.

    As I read this, I am looking at both sides of my computer desk thinking about FQ's instead of CDs in the racks. Thank you fro the idea!

    I have my FQ's stored in a repurposed VHS tape cabinet with doors. Will try to post a picture later. I'll bet you ladies could find some of those cabinets at second-hand stores for a bargain price, too!
