I moved this summer and still trying to get organized. I unpack my fabric an fold mine with 2 different ruler. I use my 6 1/2 x 24”1/2” rulers to roll them on. When done I fold in half and don’t need the boards. I use the smaller of the two for a yard and the bigger for more than 1. Yard.

It's such a good feeling to get my fabric organized or anything else that needs attention in my house. For me, and maybe for you too, I feel it's so HARD to keep it organized. I try to "put back" as soon as possible but sometimes that's hard. Funny when scrapbooking was the rage and I wasn't quilting, I went to a couple scrapbooking parties and thought...no way can I do this. Too much stuff...paper, stamps, inks, trims, etc. So what do I do now? Quilt! Supplies: fabric, thread, notions, rulers, books, patterns, mags. Funny, huh?

Comic book boards are white, acid free cardboard sheets used to protect collectible comic books. The comic book and one board are put in a protective plastic sleeve to prevent stains and folding. You can find them on Amazon in a couple of sizes and usually one hundred in a pack. They cost less than fifteen dollars. Look on Youtube or Google for ways to fold your fabric around them. I use plastic alligator clips to secure the fabric ends. So much better than rubber bands or pins. You end up with mini bolts of fabric that you place on a shelf just like books. Love being able to see all the fabrics at once.

OOoops, sorry, Onetomatoplant. Somehow I missed that you had already posted a reply. Didn't mean to run over you.

No problem! You’re explanation was better than mine. 😊
