Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I agree, the ruler fold method is awesome. I just finished my last bit of material and my fabric stash will be all organized. Mine is kept on shelves in a closet and I open the door just to look in an see my fabric, it is so inspirational.
I have just finished doing this, and it's great just being able to quickly see what I have. Also it saves a lot of space over my former helter-skelter habits. I was fascinated to see that I have a disproportionate amount of red fabric. I have hardly used any in my quilts, but I must like it because I have bought plenty of it. The next quilt will definitely have some red.
We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.

It's going to take me a while, but I am going to go thru and do this to all my fabric!
I've been slowly going thru my fabric and doing the 1-3 yard cuts using the ruler method. My LQS had and 'empty the bolt' sale and there was a JoAnn's that was moving, selling longer yardage cuts. What do you do with the larger cuts, like 5-6 yards? I tried the ruler method, but the roll was so thick that you couldn't fold it at the end. Bigger ruler? Beg empty cardboard bolts from my LQS???
