Bobbin storage

2 04 2013

Here’s a great idea I saw on Facebook the other day — using ice block trays for storing bobbins! I happened to have an old tray with large openings, just perfect for three of my Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen M size bobbins. This particular tray will hold 48 bobbins, and I only have about 20 or so, so there’s plenty of room for more 😉

Even better, this storage system slides neatly onto the shelf under the HQ Sweet Sixteen table.


Suggestion: As this ice block tray came with an old fridge, and I’m not sure they make trays with this sort of depth or width these days, perhaps try a secondhand store or op shop.

I saw that one, too, and thought it a great idea! I have a question for ya….do the “community quilts” come to you as tops ready for quilting and you have the batting/backing???? or how???
