Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Hi, I tried your attachment for the spreadsheet calculations,however, it did not work. I would very much appreciate you sending me the spreadsheet by separate email. I want very much to get my sewing room organized and I have tried all kinds of ways to store my fabric. I really like what I am seeing here with this method; it looks wonderful. Thanks so much for your spreadsheet.
Awesome organization!!! Just curious how you organize your fat quarters?
I bought Comic Book Boards at amazon.com, 100 of them, 6 3/4" X 10 1/2", for about $10 total. I cut them in half for the smaller pieces and it works perfectly. They're acid free, waaaaay cheaper and produce the same results.
I had seen your tutorial awhile ago..and thought it to be a great and neat idea. My stash, which I've been working on for about 3 years, was forgotten because the material has been "hidden" in a number of places..So...After seeing your tutorial a 2nd or 3rd time I just started folding fat quarters first...they look beautiful! And then folded larger material on a bigger board. I didn't want to cut cardboard for all the bigger ones and I was at a standstill for a couple days. My husband and I were at the grocery store. I saw one of the employees stocking yogert. The board the yogert sits on before putting it on the shelf is wonderful and a great size. So..I got about 25 of them then...have gone back for more. The 2nd time I got about 12. Yesterday I wanted to see if I could get a couple more altho no one was stocking yogert.
Anyway...long story altho your tutorial is great and goty my mind going...and I love your nice, neat stash Thank you

OMG I love this tut! Thank you so much! What a perfect idea, you would wince if you saw how my fabric is stored now.
Hello dear alaskasunshine
I just love your post but I am having a terrible time trying to find 48x96 boards with out paying a ton for shipping. Our Home depot has them but they are white on one side and black on the other I believe and they are 4mm. Would this matter as far as keeping my material safe.
Would 18x 24" boards work and was your board you bought 2mm,3mm or 4mm
One of your devoted followers,
I am starting out as a new collector of quilting materials. In other words I am a newbie. This will help me to curtail the mess of all the loose fabrics and get me organized before I really build my stash. Thank you so much
