    Your organization makes sense to me...

    Now that is a stash!!!!! I sort mine by color too, with some special boxes like 30's, civil war, thimbeberries, black/white, paisley, plaids/stripes (from shirts) - and then there are the stacks that don't have a home yet. I use plastic shoebox size boxes and when the lids don't fit anymore then it is time to raid the box for a quilt. I also store by size - 1.5, 2, 2.5 squares and now 2.5 strips. I don't purchase fabric unless it is for a specific project and since I do a lot of scrappy quilts, it is usually for borders/bindings/backs. All my stuff in boxes is pretty small - FQ or smaller - I really don't have yardage. I am green with envy!!!

    Love it and what a stash you have, and I thought I had a lot. Great you have so much space too. Don't forget to show us some quilts.

    Thanks for sharing - it's always good to see what others do - we can glean any ideas that will work for us! My room is always a work in progress. I'm now working on cutting 1 1/2, 1 1/2 and 2 7/8 inch strips and putting them in boxes. That certainly came in handy this week when I needed one more strip to finish the blocks for a quilt. I can either have a clean room or sew - can't have both!!

    When you posted you got your shelves from a fabric shop that closed - did those shelves have the fabric still on them? Because you seem to have enough fabric for a store.LOL
