    I am wondering how you organize your fabric. I am a beginner quilter and don't have much fabric but when I get some would like to be sure it is all organized. Hubby has been unemployed since July 2009 so $ is tight for us. Have a wonderful day!

    I just came across this link and thought I would post it here to see if anyone else has used this organization idea.

    I do mine by colors. Fat quarters by color and yardage by color.

    I am kind of half and half on that. Some are by catagories....Christmas, Halloween, doggies, stuff like that. Then I have two plastic containers of BLUE, and another of tans and greens. Guess I just can't make up my mind....

    Am I the only one that doesn't organize? My fabric is a mess. It's all over the place...in closets, drawers, bags...I think I need help! I have to admit I should organize it so I can find stuff. I spend a lot of time digging around and getting frustrated but it seems impossible to get organized! Who wants to come help me???

    I have 2 bookshelves in my sewing room where I put my FQ's in color groupings. And large tubs that I keep the larger pieces in. Also have the seasonal things together and the Bali fabric in another group.

    I also sort by color and theme. Black and white together, novelty. I also keep flannel all together.

    I have a dresser I keep all the fat quarters in by color. The rest of the fabric is in a cupboard by length of cut. I can see what color it is and there's no point in pulling a piece of fabric out if it's not the right length. That way if I need a 3 yard cut I'm only looking at 3 yard cuts and longer.
