    Fabric Folding...Love It

    As a beginnerquilter, I have lots of odds and ends of fabric or find remnants that I love and buy them but I have been stuffing them in white trash bags, which left them wrinkled and difficult to find. I love this idea and will have to reorganize my room. Thank you so much for the tutorial, it was fantasticly easy to understand and follow along.

    The Quilting Board is just great. And there are so many quilters who share their ideas or insights like this. Again thank you so very much.

    I am also a new quilter and have started using this method for storage. Also, if it doesn't fit on a bolt, it goes into color tubs, starting with shoe box size.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Hi There,,, I want to first say, you (alaskansunshine) are Adorable!!! and your fabric storage is just amazing!!! Thank you so much for this really great tutorial on folding... I too have tons of fabric... and my oldest son recently moved out of our home (bless his heart, bought his own home at 23 yrs old) yes I am really proud of him ... so I finally have my dream "sewing/craft room" that I am really excited about decorating and making it a beautiful place for me to do what I love. I have bought some really neat shelving units and I'm so excited to have found your tutorial and to get started folding You are super sweet, and incredibly inspiring,, and thank you for helping so many of us fellow sewers.

    Great pictures!!! I have recently started to put my fabric on boards too. I am on my third pack of 100! It sure makes it easy to see what fabric a person really has. I even had doubles of a few fabrics (I work at a fabric store, so I am always purchasing remants). I think I will start using boards for my smaller pieces like you have done as well.

    Have a great day!

    They are called comic book boards. Acid free. They come in packs of 100 for about $10 - $13. They are sold on Amazon, ebay and at comic book stores.

    I thought I was organized. You put me to shame. I wish you lived closer. I'd love to gather more tips from you.
    Thanks for the tutorial!

    Hi, I tried your attachment for the spreadsheet calculations,however, it did not work. I would very much appreciate you sending me the spreadsheet by separate email. I want very much to get my sewing room organized and I have tried all kinds of ways to store my fabric. I really like what I am seeing here with this method; it looks wonderful. Thanks so much for your spreadsheet.

    I bought Comic Book Boards at amazon.com, 100 of them, 6 3/4" X 10 1/2", for about $10 total. I cut them in half for the smaller pieces and it works perfectly. They're acid free, waaaaay cheaper and produce the same results.

    I had seen your tutorial awhile ago..and thought it to be a great and neat idea. My stash, which I've been working on for about 3 years, was forgotten because the material has been "hidden" in a number of places..So...After seeing your tutorial a 2nd or 3rd time I just started folding fat quarters first...they look beautiful! And then folded larger material on a bigger board. I didn't want to cut cardboard for all the bigger ones and I was at a standstill for a couple days. My husband and I were at the grocery store. I saw one of the employees stocking yogert. The board the yogert sits on before putting it on the shelf is wonderful and a great size. So..I got about 25 of them then...have gone back for more. The 2nd time I got about 12. Yesterday I wanted to see if I could get a couple more altho no one was stocking yogert.
    Anyway...long story altho your tutorial is great and goty my mind going...and I love your nice, neat stash Thank you

    you can copy the tute over into a word document and save it on your computer so you don't lose it. just do a copy & paste. i hope this works for you.

    Hello dear alaskasunshine
    I just love your post but I am having a terrible time trying to find 48x96 boards with out paying a ton for shipping. Our Home depot has them but they are white on one side and black on the other I believe and they are 4mm. Would this matter as far as keeping my material safe.

    Would 18x 24" boards work and was your board you bought 2mm,3mm or 4mm

    One of your devoted followers,
    Brenda

    I am starting out as a new collector of quilting materials. In other words I am a newbie. This will help me to curtail the mess of all the loose fabrics and get me organized before I really build my stash. Thank you so much
