    Still trying to cut down and cut back on my fabric. So here are some of the ideas I had for my stash control. I have a Husky Iron I use to press the fabrics. I'm working on doing the Twister quilts, and the Tube quilts. So far I have gone through 5o different fabrics... I'm afraid to look what is left upstairs.
    My sewing room is clean and full, now what to do with the over flow. I have another roll of batting to find a place for, we just picked up a new shipment on Friday.

    5"sq~10" sq~2 1/2" strips

    I also do a 1 1/2" strip and a 3 1/2" strip.

    Of course, then I find a pattern that wants 1" and 2" strips. :)

    LOL, if there's too much fabric you can always send me some! Or have a sale where I can buy some :-D - I think we all have this problem. We're all closet fabric horders and proud of it!

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    I like how you're organizing, that's what I do and it really does seem to help.
