    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.

    Yes, I'd say you nuked it!
    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.

    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!
