    fat quarter and yard storage

    Someone made one like this that was smaller and cuter but this works for me and uses a space where big furniture would be in the way. I made it with 1" x 6" whitewood. I am by no means a carpenter but I was proud of it when I was done. The top shelf is charm squares, jelly roll and those fabrics with the 6 colors on them. Then 4 shelves of fat quarters or halfs. Then 2 shelves with 1-1.5yard cuts. All of my bigger fabric pieces are wrapped on comic book boards or neatly folded and waiting for their new space. I am getting laminate floors soon so I haven't finished my space since it all has to move out. I will show pictures after floors.

    Just my 2 cents and probably not worth that much but I ALWAYS have an opinion!

    Great job!

    I am very impressed with your carpenter skills. Maybe we could build something together sometime?
