    Yep, Patrice, and the pics just does not do the fabric justice. I find it all very vibrant colors and a soft feel to the fabric too. I was not dissapointed in any of it , not even the cheapest cuts.

    no hubby to hide it from. at the rate i'm going, even if i finally met a Mr. Right, there's be no room here for him. :lol:

    what you can't see in the photo are the two remaining cardboard boxes in a corner. i'm afraid to look inside because i have a feeling they aren't full of teddy bears! :shock:

    oh well ... if i'm gonna be a junkie, i guess this is better for me than meth. :roll:

    Are we starting up a FUA (Fabric Users Anonymous)?
    I need help!!!!!!!!
    I'm beginning to think quilters shouldn't be allowed to hang out together. What one can't think of the others can and we lead each other down the garden path! :lol: But we do have fun!

    Wow - what a great way to store fabric!!!!!!!!!!!! What are the containers you used??? Are they stackable sets of plastic bins where the draws put out??? If so, it looks like you stored sets on top of each other without a problem. I've been looking for a better way to store my stash so I can sort it better - something like this might work.

    Thanks for any info you can pass on to me.

    i get my drawers at walmart. the brand is either sterling or sterlite. i'm at the office, so can't run to check the labels. they come in stacks of 5 or seven. i get the sevens. each stack is on wheels. to make the ones you see in the photo, i pop the top off one stack, leave the wheels off the second, then stack them together.

    the only drawback is that when they're full, the wheels get a bit wacky. i haven't figured out yet how to reinforce them enough to work with all the weight.

    i've started storing the bits and pieces of UFOs in their own individual drawers. when i'm bored with one, i just stuff it back into its drawer and go pull another one.

    along with the stacks, i got a brand new kitchen. (not really. it had just been so long since i'd seen my counters, it feels new. :lol: :lol: :lol: )

    Patrice, Do the drawers open and close easily? I bought a stack of drawers on wheels at Staples and the wheels work fine, but when I open the drawers they don't close without holding up on the upper drawers. I'm always pinching my fingers trying to close them.

    I love your idea about storing each UFO in a separate drawer. What a great way to know where everything is. :D :D

    Bearpawquilting.com has great sale and great everyday prices. Thousandsofbolts.com...most is under $5.00 a yard. Connectingthreads.com now has a line of their own at a great price. The fabric is wonderful to work with. Not a large selecton but more and more is coming out.

    the drawers work just fine. are your drawers full? it may be that too much weight has the same effect on your drawers as it has on my wheels. if they're stuffed full, try redistributing the contents.

    obviously, neither yours nor mine were designed by a quilter. :wink:

    Thank you for the info on your plactic stack units. I am going to buy 2 the next time I go to Walmart. Then I'll have my hubby modify them as you suggest. Since he is an engineer I think I will have him work on how the wheels can be reinforced. If he comes up with a solution, I will let you know.

    Thanks again for info.

    Thank you for this site... I think! Yep! I just spent a very pleasant hour shopping and oh, yes, good stuff is a-comin'!!! :lol: It was very hard narrowing it down though. I want it all! :mrgreen:

    Only a few days left (til June 30) to take advantage of AMAZING prices at www.fabric.com I bought a ton of fabric for $2.95 a yard, and it is top quality quilt fabric.

    Look in the Back in Time sale section. They also have a 20% off code for checkout: Clearance268.

    Hi,

    Talk about stashs. I recieved an e-mail recently about a quilter here in Maryland who actually had two paid, climate controled storage sheds full of fabric. She gave out her phone number so that anyone interested in purchasing some could call her and she would meet them there to cut it for and sell it to them. I think she must win the prize. I would imagine she has been pretty busy lately.
