Dear Sally, The way I have re-stacked my loot follows: I bought both
enameled and plastic bins. I envited two of my granddaughters over for
lunch and after a good lunch topped with ice cream, I laid out the plan
which started with wash your hands. This is how they chose to solve
the problem. They emptied all the stacks on to the middle of the
floor, selected their favorite color and started to work from there.
They actually did a marvelous job which stood for at least a month
before I added a few improvements to the system. They check up on
their arranged quilting quarters from time to time and are delighted
with themselves. They earn shopping money from helping their
grandmother, but I'm sure they would do it free.
