    Oh my goodness!!!!! That is absolutely fantastic! I wish I could organize like that
    Quilts are like friends - they age with you, yet never lose their warmth. Friendship promotes the good and happiness in each other.

    I'm curious how this works with a group of quilters. Does the stash belong to everyone? IF so, how is it fairly divided among you all? It's fantastic how nicely it's organized!!

    So is this all your beautiful stash? I love how organized it looks. Anybody living in Phoenix Az want help organizing their stash let me know. I enjoy doing this. Plus I don't have a stash down here so it gives me an excuse to touch fabric and organize at the same time. Any other snowbird quilters down here?

    That looks great. Now you can see all your fabric and it is easy to pick and choose your fabrics. I have the Polar Notions boards and boy what a difference. I know it would have been much cheaper to use the comic book boards but my studio is in the basement and I was told they may not hold up in the basement if it gets damp down there. I run a dehumidifier all year round, but didn't want to take the chance.

    We used no comic books or anything... we just used a 6x24 ruler to wrap fabric over and then fold in half..

    we folded over a 6x24" ruler then folded in half... this started by me asking what they pay for fabric... count it $10 a yard by the time you pay taxes... and the most money they spend is on fabric but it isn't treated very well, so figure out how you can treat it better and invest in getting it together. It's been interesting to see who did this and who didnt'

    Thanks for all your comments.

    I would love to have a stash like that! Right now I don't have that much fabric but what I do have I don't know how to organize and fold. Thanks for sharing.

    Looking great, Ladies! Here's a suggestion for anyone who is inspired to tackle this project on their own...when I folded my fabrics and organized them as in the photos here, I measured each fabric and wrote the amount on an index card (cut in half) and stapled the card to the front top edge of the fabric. This way, when I need a piece I can tell exactly how much I have and if it will be enough for my pattern without unfolding it. It took a little extra time, but is was well worth it later. Hope this helps.
    Create with joy in your heart!
