I am a fabric artist so I purchase many fabrics in fat quarters and small pieces. As a result, storage space in my quilting room was becoming an issue. To solve the problem, I purchased CD/tape racks for a few dollars at a thrift store. They take up very little room, hold fat quarters just right, and allow me to immediately view my special-effect materials.
