I have a issue with buying fabric or patterns then later (sometimes years) I can't remember what I had in mind for it. So I have been setting up project boxs with the fabric & pattern I want to use.
I always have issues posting pics, its not upside down in my file & when you click to enlarge its not upside down,

Project boxes look great! I do the same thing and it is so helpful....sometimes, by the time I grab the box, I may change my mind but that's OK, too. At least it's organized and readily available.

Craftiladi - my eldest daughter lives in El Cajon. She bought a condo out there about 13 years ago. Noticed you live in Las Vegas - you have some great quilt shops there. We go a few times a year and I have to visit them.

Craftiladi: Great idea! I have a few in boxes/containers and I try to keep my current projects in their separate ones too. I wish, however, I would have them in uniform tubs like yours. I have plenty of shoebox tubs. 😉 Just not consistent in what I put in them.

I'm terrible at keeping projects in a neat order..I'm lucky if I get it in a ziploc! Thanks for the inspiration, Craftiladi. I am kind of anal about my little strips though and glad that I am. I've started a mini project with 1" strips and many are sorted by length and or lights and darks and even a step further according to color intensity.

I started going through a larger red basket yesterday of fabric. All of it has been donated to me or my church quilting group over many years. There are 2 kits from Grannyís Quilting Shapes which is probably vintage. Some BOM packages with fabric in them for that monthís block. A few pieces here and there that go together and quite a few different yardages with the squares for making pillow tops. A few of them are flowers but mostly animals whether realistic looking or an artistís drawing. If I ever decide to learn to free motion quilt, those pillow squares would definitely be great practice.

Thank you for all the nice comments on my project boxes. I have a good size tote with ufo's I have avoided over the years, well I decided last week to pull them all out and organize into more project boxes-well good intentions fell by the wayside and I now have a sewing rm that looks like a bomb went off in it. Yep all those UFO's are laying around my sewing room in piles, Hope to get the motivation to get them to put away this weekend.

LOL! Not to worry, you are on a roll and Iím sure you will get them organized into project boxes.

I have been in super organizing mode this past couple of weeks. I needed a new computer and went from an 11 year old laptop to a nice big screen desktop model. As a result, I had to totally rethink how I was using my desk and adjacent work spaces. Still in process, but I will eventually end up with more work surface than I had before thanks to making some changes in how I handle paperwork.

We are anticipating a move within 2 months so thought I'd better tidy up the fabric room. I thought about throwing out some of the scraps but then realized I have too many usable small scraps in odd sizes. So l today plan to trim what I have into usable pieces and go from there. Quilters on this site gave me great ideas as well as you-tube. Already had lunch, found my cutter and rulers, and ready to attack the first large storage tub of fabric. OMG!!!
