    I have three tall bookcases with 2+ yard mini-bolts of fabrics and two other smaller bookcases with bolted fabric. I have another tall bookcase with folded one yard cuts, organized by color, season, type, and genre. I have a dresser with all my FQs organized by color. I have two DVD storage shelves that contain about three hundred FQs on mini-mini bolts. I also have a couple doored cabinets where I keep my 110" backing fabric and stabilizer/interfacing. Then, I have small plastic shoe boxes for all my smaller pieces. I also have a bunch of tubs of fabric with scraps that I haven't sorted and a few with larger pieces of fabric that I haven't room for on my shelves. (I have WAY too much fabric!) I keep small pieces for PPing and for machine applique. If I don't think that I am going to use my scraps, I put them in a ziplock and donate them to my kids' school for crafts.
