Pattern Protection

To keep all my patterns together in one place I place each pattern in a plastic page protector/clear cover and sort them by type of quilt pattern in a large 3-ring binder. I unfold the smaller patterns or separate the pages into their own page protector. I also have a separate binder for each of my block-of-the-month patterns and each month I simply add a block.

I use 's' hooks – often used for suspending kitchen gadgets from a rack – and I suspend the patterns vertically through the chain links. This also helps to organize them. I hang quilting patterns I am planning to use soon on one hook and perhaps clothing patterns for grandchildren on another and so on. Works for me…
