    From my experience (and I'll bet others would agree), you will not have the FULL AMOUNT OF TIME ever available to do this PROJECT in one setting. For me - it took weeks to get the job DONE. Throughout those weeks, I did spend about 2 full days working on the fabric but otherwise it was a few hours here - a couple of hours there - 30 minutes when I could sneak it in. Hope you get the picture.

    Step by step - 30 minutes by 30 minutes...getting started is the hard part.

    Quite often the local fabric stores will give you the bolts that fabric comes on and you can cut them down to any size you want- and they are free. Just ask them for the think bolt holders (there are thick ones that are about 3/4" thick and the ones that are just a heavy piece of cardboard- these are the ones you want). Most often they will save them for you for a few days until you can get to pick them up.

    Looks great... i just don't understand why quilters don't get organized!! and... but...if we all used our fabric the quilt stores would go out of business!!! Can't have that!!! it's amazing what we can find once we get it organized.. you did good!!!

    Nice job! Really! I got probably 50% of mine on those same boards, did have about 90% til I bought a bunch more material! It is so fun just to see the fabric, thanks for posting!

    I ordered my comic book backs about a week ago and am still waiting for them to arrive. I can't wait to start putting my fabric on them.

    Kay45, I love the way you have organized your fabric. You have inspired me to look into the comic boards. I see that they sell them in two sizes. What size did you use? I am really excited about getting started on organizing my stash.
