    I've been organizing my fabric/sewing room and I was shocked to discover I had so many fat quarters. More to come I suspect as I uncover more boxes. Dally (speckled one also my avatar as a baby) and Squaw (Miss Smiley) are "helping" me.

    That would be squaw. She hasn't met a latch or drawer that she can't get into. Slight over achiever.

    It looks like your FQ's are on cards. Hope they are acid-free.
    I take all mine out of any wrappings, remove any labels, wash and press, then re-fold and stack on edge. Your boxes look like they are just the right size, too!

    Can't you feel the message they are trying to tell you, "You need more fabric". At least that's what I think they are wanting to tell you. :)

    Now those are the best inspectors a quilter could have! They are adorable and it looks like they are guarding your stash with all their hearts.

    LOL, they know what's important!

    Both dogs are Australian Cattle Dogs or blue/red heelers. Dally is a rescue. He was turned into a high kill shelter at 5 weeks for biting. At the time I was running a heeler rescue and of course, when I saw his picture, I just had to have time. Didn't intend to keep him but he was skinny, somebody had cut his tail off, and he needed a good home. Why not mine!! He has been a challenge (tons of attitude) but he has turned out to be a good dog.

    What cute helpers you have, now which one irons and which one folds the fat quarters? lol Where would we be without our pet companions? I have a cat who thinks she's a dog at times, as she follows me everywhere, actually she walks 2 steps in front of me until I step on her, then she moves faster, but she has to be with me all the time. I love it. Now that we have moved to a 2 bedroom apt. and have separate bedrooms, she gets to sleep with me, which she likes. Besides the need for privacy and a place to be alone, the apt. wouldn't fit our king size bed. Oh well. I need my space to be alone and quilt.
