I organized my fabric room with shelves and picked up the empty bolts cards from JoAnns to wrap any pieces over 2 yds. that way I had everything organized by color and picking out what I needed was very easy. Everything below two yds i put into pull out bins standing the fabric on end so I could see what I had at a glance. sure did make it all easier to use and to find.
good for you. I organized my room last year and have kept it that way. I feel way more creative and have made many charity quilts in the last 12 months. It helps to purge, pass it on maybe to someone that lost their stash in Hurricane Sandy or other disaster
