Hi All!

I'm new to the quilting forum here and am working on my first quilt. I am hand quilting it together now and am really enjoying the process. My question is: What do I do with it when not actively quilting it? I have two kids and a husband and it's always getting moved around - but I have nothing to keep it in. I feel like it would safer if it was in something. Any advice? Thanks!

I stored mine in a GIANT plastic bag while I was sewing it. This kept it safe from pets and spills, but was more portable than a box. I didn't worry much about it getting wrinkled as I worked on it-just ironed it every so often.  Smiley

I always keep mine in a garbage bag (usually a regular sized one because most mine are baby or lap quilts) but I keep them rolled up instead of folded.
