    How I sort my fabric

    There are lots of threads asking about this all the time so I broke down and did a few pics of my working mess. Here are the shots of how I organize my fabric.

    The shelves for the major part of the stash came from a fabric store that closed. They are about eight feet long and six feet high.

    The table is from the same store. It is 3 1/2'W x 8'L.

    Hope my casual organization helps some to not worry to much about being focused on tidy rather than quilting.

    I love your concept, and your stash. Sure wish I had a place to store my stuff like that.

    Wow, can I come over and go shopping? You should be set for a while. I have a large stash, but yours makes mine look small. Love the shelves and the table sounds and looks great. Happy for you, ENJOY!...
