    Your stash is enviable to everyone here on the board looking at it. Your spending habit might just be a bit out of control. I want to encourage you to try to select from your stash and stay out of the quilt store. I'm afraid if you really don't go shopping, the local quilt store might have to go out of business. LOL.

    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.

    I'm so jealous

    But it's so pretty and accessible!! I made the mistake of putting mine in bins and then stacking them. Whenever I want something it is in the bottom bin under 3-4 other bins.

    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. :-)

    let's see if I get this right - we saw 3 tall units FULL of neatly folded fabrics and you still have more?!

    You're having a garage sale in May? I wonder how many miles/hrs away you are - my hubby wanted to take a road trip to see the States this spring... lol

    People collect stamps. Are they expected to have them on letters. No, so why should you have ALL of your beautiful collection in quilts
