    Thought I'd share some pics from my new quilt studio - which used to be our formal living room. I sold the furniture via Craiglist and used the $$ to buy the IKEA Expedit bookcase and saving the rest for when I find the "right" sewing table.

    One thing I've learned in this process is how dang much fabric I have! I've purged a lot and am really happy to have gone through each and every piece of it so I really have a sense of what I have, might need for upcoming projects. I can now make good choices when I start a new project vs. randomly going out and buying fabric that I already had buried in my stash. Now I know what I've got and can put it to good use!

    The bookcase is like a piece of art with all the colorful fabrics stacked inside the cubbies.

    Love your quilt studio. What kind of table is that? I love that it drops down so small. Your bookcase makes the perfect fabric storage. Good luck finding just the right sewing table.

    Craftygardenmom,

    What a nice room to sew in. Those cabinets could really hold a lot of fabric. I love all of your room paint colors too! Did you make the wallhanging above your sewing space? It looks very similar to a WIP in my sewing room. Would you take a closeup photo of it please?

    I have some of those same shelves from IKEA. Here's something you should think about though.... Having your fabric out in the light like that may not be a good idea. It will fade, get discolored etc. IKEA makes pull out boxes that fit those niches and yes, I know, more $ but your fabric will be out of the light. I keep my fabric in my closed closet. I've inherited fabric with obvious fold, fade lines and the previous owners probably stored the fabric where light got to it.

    Wonder if I can get away with that. Unfortunately my house is a 1908 ranchouse we refurbished and it is a lot of open space like on Bonanza, so if I put it in the living room, I have no privacy. You are so lucky. Thanks for sharing. Just love what you've done.
