    I do separate them by color in bins but they later end up in different color bin. I think they mingle while I am asleep. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    I just sort mine by color into plastic stacking bins, but this looks like a much better idea. Thanks for posting.

    I just recently organized my fabric. ALL of it. Took about two weeks. Now, the scraps are in separate bins, sorted by color, theme, and size. Some of them (such as patriotic and halloween) take up several bins. I am now trying to work through all of the kits and BOM's I have purchased...

    I don't know what organization is although my sister keeps telling me I need to get some.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I looked on the site that prints the labels and have found several other interesting labels to print as well. I like that idea. organize??? I keep trying but it is something that does not come naturally to me. So I NEED labels.

    That tells me it's time to sew

    Mine are in two bins, one for colors and one for whites/neutrals. The bins fit right under my quilting frame.

    I separate them by size and within the sizes they are subdivided into prints and solids(or prints that read as solid). The prints and solids are further subdivided by value-- darks, mediums and lights. I don't separate by hue (color) because that would take more time and space than I've got available.
