    What impressed me more than the amount of fabric you had, was the amount of work you have done to get that all organized! Congratulations! I am very proud of you!

    I am still waiting for my dd to get the rest of her stuff out of her old bedroom so that we can remove the carpeting, paint and install shelves. Then I will be organizing my stash. (She got married in July)

    Wow, you do look like a fabric store. I could have a ball with all that material.

    I love the way you used the (matching) baskets to store your smaller pieces in front of each shelf. Very good use of space still allowing you to see what is behind.
    Really if your going to sell some you should do it on Ebay fabric sell good on ebay!!
    I'm so jealous
    Jan,
    You're so right...it is out of control. I'm ashamed to admit it, but this is not all of it by a long shot. This doesn't include any of my flannels, home dec fabrics, Thimbleberries collections or Civil War and 30's repros. Having to organize it all was just the thing to make me realize that I simply have way too much. I'm going to be having a heck of a garage sale in May, and I will be making lots of quilters very happy, I think. It's better than many addictions, but I am taking this pretty seriously. :-)

    The shelves are floor to ceiling (about 8 ft.). My dad made them for me. Part of the reason I get away with all of this is that I am single and have no children.....hey! I deserve to have this if it makes me happy, right?

    OMG - I thought I was bad! I see a penchant for pink and purple, I think. This will require more study. And when we are this bad... we find a way to organize. Your little baskets would make me nuts, however. Enjoy it and use it like crazy!

    Very well organized and what a beautiful array of fabric. I love the idea of the little baskets too. You are right, you deserve it.

    Yes you do! If you think it's too much and have a solution to fixing it then you solved the problem, so technically there is no problem LoL

    Beautiful fabrics by the way :thumbup:
