    Here is a picture of my fabric cabinet that my boyfriend and I made to house my fabrics. I started color coding them in each basket. The cabinet has 36 baskets with the last shelf holding odd and ends of large amounts of fabric. I think I need another one as this one is full and I have a few more bins full of fabric.

    I just wanted to share -- I was awwwwing over a lot of sewing rooms. Maybe I might have time to clean mine and take pictures too!

    Yes I did design it. I decided on the basket size and started with that. Then I decided where I wanted it to sit in my lil shop and then decided on the demensions. I have used the pattern for the doors on a dinning room hutch we made and just enlarged them to fit the cabinet. Build it. Sanded it. and Stained it.

    I do have to say we make a good team on making things together. He's a keeper!!! :lol:

    Thanks everyone.

    Not only do I quilt but I do have my very on wood working tools, and i paint, crochet, cross stitch, bake, garden, fish, camp and knit and on top of all this I have three kids almost all grown and I do still work a full time job as on office manager/accountant. I have to have something in my hands doing something at all times. Never enough time in a day to get everything I want done but oh well there is always tomorrow. I would love to retire and be a stay at home person so I can sew all that fabric into nice quilts. lol Until then I will just keep adding to my stash so that I can have stuff to do when I retire. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Great job! It is wonderful. I would need about 6 of those cabinets. And the baskets would have to be 3 times that size.

    All I can say is wow!! That is so cool that you can make your own cabinetry to fit the baskets you want to use exactly!! Isnít it so great to have stuff organized?? Thatís how I felt when I put all my scrap sin color coded baskets. Such a relief!

    Cheers!

    Beautiful cabinet!! I too love to design things to fit what I have. There's nothing like DIY to me!! Your stash is the perfect size IMHO -- not too big to be cumbersome and not too small to be lacking anything! Your quilts can be beautiful with what you have already!! Just finding the time is needed....thank you for sharing with us. He's a keeper!! :D :D

    Wow - very nice - my favorite two things - a quilter and SugarLand! I love the singing group Sugarland, they were on the Today show today! I love their songs and even looked up Sugar Land on the map to see if there was really such a place - yes, in Texas!
