    I used the 6.5"x10.5" size, I wasn't aware there was more than one.

    I folded the fabric selvage to selvage, then again leaving the selvage showing the fabric line on the outside so I can see it on the board. I thought about measuring them as I wrapped them but decided it would take too long. I can guesstimate by looking at the size of the fabric on the the board pretty easily.

    I was iffy about comic boards until I saw yours in your drawers. I have dressers like yours with fabric in them and I want mine to look like yours!! I am going to Amazon right now and order 100 comic boards. Thank you for showing me that you can use them in drawers also!!!

    1/2 yard up to 2 yards for most of the fabrics.

    I spent some time last weekend while watching March Madness trying out some different folding methods for FQs and settled on the "Basic Tuck" method found here http://badskirt.blogspot.com/2009/01...o-fold-it.html

    Here is drawer #1 which contains some collections and my "rainbow" FQ stash. I'm planning to start filling drawer #2 with batiks.

    Asimplelife: Well you have really inspired me. Not only are your drawers easily accessable, their just plain great to look at. I have two large (six foot) bookcases that currently hold quilting books and odds and ends. Out that stuff goes. My fabric is ruler folded and I discovered it will stand up and even the smaller yardages are still visable. I don't know how much of my stash will fit into the cases but I am going for it.

    Emma S: You will love it! Especially for stash that you use often, I find it so easy to browse and find fabric(s) and best of all quickly put them away again.

    You did a great job of organizing. What pretty colored fabrics you have. I'm sure it took a long time to organize. It looks like the perfect storage! Good luck filling up the top drawers!
    Go forth and sew!
