    fabric shelves before and after

    I finally got enough foam boards from Dollar General to finish winding the majority of the fabrics in this bookcase. There's one small stack left and part of what's in the stack is kits.

    Before,

    I actually took out a shelf and still have it all back on the shelf. The two full size bolts are a fusible interfacing so it's going to stay on the full size bolts.

    Awesome! I have about 1/2 of mine on comic book boards. I hope to finish before I have to return back to school. I love the way it looks and how easy it is to see what you have. You inspired me to continue.

    It took over 10 years to get that much fabric. A lot of them are only 2 yard cuts.

    That looks so nice and organized. By the way, your "before" picture looks better than my space. Sigh...you have inspired me.

    Sure! One of the biggest reasons I did this is so I can pull the fabrics out and play with them. When they're in stacks you end up having to fight with the stack and end up with a mess when you're done. This way I can pull out what I want and put it back with no mess!

    I will not however post a pic of my desk!

    Hmmmm, you've got some great quilt stores on that side of the state. I might have to consider it!

    It's beautiful! Isn't it nice to have your fabrics right at your finger tips instead of digging through bins?! Your own little fabric store. I really enjoy looking at my collection of fabrics!

    A great collection of fabrics, organization makes it easier to pull fabrics for a quilt, as well as saves you time.

    What are the fabric boards called that you got at Dollar General? I've never seen anything like that here locally.

    They're just foam core boards. If they have them they'll be with the poster boards. I checked at our other DG and they don't have any at all. My Dollar Tree doesn't have them either but some people have said they can get them at DT.
