    After two months of work I finally think I know what I have and my DH is right, I have too much fabric. However I love every little inch of it and plan to spend as much time sewing as I did organizing.

    Much of the help came from fabric storage boards and hints I picked up from the members of this board. Thank you one and all.

    Doesn't it feel great just to get it organized? I'm almost there. I see that you have a lot of novelty fabric. It's challenging to use up, isn't it? Good luck!! At least you can see what you have and can work from there!

    what a task - what a great hubby you have to 'put up' with your hobby.

    I love the stash on the guest room bed - if I come to visit will you notice if I stick it all in my suitcase?

    Love your fabric stash and now neat it is. With the prices of cotton going higher the stash is money in the bank.

    You are welcome anytime! I might if there are little corners hanging out of the suitcase, otherwise if you can get it in your suitcase...

    I think you did a marvelous job and now you can see what all you have. That way, if you need something you can look and see...and if you don't have it...you can go buy it. :-) Great job, my friend!

    Don't you just LOVE being able to see all your fabric???

    I just re-organized my stash a few months ago and love being able to walk up and see exactly what I have that will work in my current project.

    BTW..... you do have a marvelous stash!! Happy, happy quilting! ;-)

    Beautiful stash. No I do not feel so bad with what I have. I noticed an electrical cord on floor in one picture. Please be careful so it does not get damaged and cause a firs. Would not want anything to happen to your wonderful stash.

    I did mine too and I am more productive now that I can see what I have. I put all of my small scraps into containers and I'm now working on piecing scrap quilts from them. I put one top together and haven't even put a dent into it!
