    I think putting a swatch of all my fabrics into a notebook would be great. Whenever I want to make a quilt I could pick the fabrics out of it. Would take me a month or so with all the fabrics I have.

    You can never be too rich, too thin, or have too much fabric.

    Get some of those plastic baseball card pages that go in a 3-ring binder. Also I would highly recommend including where you purchased the fabric for quick reference in the future. Before my stash exploded I kept a small photo album in my purse with a swatch of each of my fabrics. Now it would take a pirate's trunk to haul it all around!

    Great idea tho! Kudos and keep it up!
