I always have lots of rolls of stabilizers and fusibles that get lost when I need them most so I went to the garage to find a box but found an old wine rack. The rolls fit perfectly in the wine rack and I can hang pretty labels around the exposed ends so I can identify what I need. Mine is small enough to fit on a shelf in the bookcase or on top of a table. Thinking of expanding the idea for rolls of fat quarters, etc and use the stand up rack that holds about 40 (bottles) rolls. Would work for small quilt projects that are ready to be cut too.
Great tip White Eagle.

EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Speaking of storage, I found an old wire pop bottle rack that they used to use when pop came in bottles out in my garage the other day, I cleaned it up and rolled some fat quarters and stuck them in where the bottles go. It makes a cute way to store FQ's. I like your idea of the wine rack, too. Welcome to the group.
Like your tip welcome to the club
I would love to go garage shopping in your garages hehe. I have used the cardboard rolls for paper towels and roll my ironing sheets in them. I use them For anything I don't want folded and easy to store and later find.

Elaine, this is right up my alley as I have vintage furniture in my sewing room. I think these could be wall mounted, too. Will have to scour the antique shops and see what I can find. Thanks for the suggestion. Oh, boy, another treasure hunt.
Also a great storage tip I found in a quilt shop. They have an old Library card catalog filing cabinet in which they keep their fat quarter. The labels on the drawers tell which colors are inside. Sure wish I could find one of those. I have also seen the large long nail cabinets from hardware stores of old used for fabric storage.
Use your imagination, the possibilities are endless.
