    I've been toying with the idea of taking all of you through my studio and gallery (my house). I've often wanted to respond to others pictures of their sewing rooms and stashes. From what I've seen, my stash is a bit different. I consider myself a scrapper. I buy remnants, half yards and fat quarters. Sometimes I even buy some yardage! but not often. And scraps, of course.
    I've been quilting since the early seventies. I live by the rule that if I use it all up - then I won't have it anymore. In the first picture of this tour - you can see one of only a few "planned" quilts I've ever made. I believe that variety is the spice of life.
    There will be numerous installments to this post. If you like it - keep watching! As always, I appreciate your feedback.

    I have a lot of the same little pieces - I do a lot of applique and need small scraps for it. I could shop from you very nicely! LOL

    How nice to find what you are looking for and not rummaging through boxes.

    You are my inspiration, now I better get working on my sewing room, all the tubs of material, closets, shelves and other places I can stuff my stash. I am so impressed with your quilt along with your lovely stash and organization.

    :thumbup: Love the dresser for fabric storage. I buy fabric in much the same way as you do.....fat quarters, scraps and a little yardage.

    Wow and wow again. I guess I have had the idea all this time that is against the rules to be so organized!! Sure wish my fabrics were so nice and neat as yours are! Wish I had the place to put them to make them so nice and neat.

    That is very neat - I am getting there, but I keep getting sidetracked by life.
