    What did you use to hold the bolts together. I used pins but you mentioned bolt buddies what are they?

    I use extra large paper clips - they work fine.

    Hello
    Love your organization. I found this on Pinterest. I see you posted this over 5 years ago. so I am wondering if you are still using this system.
    Also do you measure each piece? and if so how do you mark it?

    thanks

    What kind of board do you use?? I don't use straight pins because I had some rust since I use the boards that fabric is sold from. I cut the clear tablecloth vinyl 28" length, 2" wide and wrap it around the fabric and secure with a piece of scotch tape.

If you are not able to do that they may cut them for a fee.The only thing to be careful of is making sure your lines are going the right way otherwise the bolt will fold up as you try to wrap it. I give that information on the first picture on this tutorial.
    have lots of fun with this. Also if you have more questions feel free to ask away...
    Hello,
    I am wondering if you have ever tried to use he foam board for this? They say it is quit tough and easy for anyone to work it. Just wondered if it will collapse like cardboard does. There are no lines to collapse so it makes it stronger. And I think it is way cheaper. You can order it from Amazon. Thanks QM

    I used bolt buddies. I purchased them at a local quilt shop. The boards are Coroplast it is like heavy cardboard only made from plastic! Very cheap and affordable!

    I am now trying your method for organizing my fabric and boy I didn't realize how much fabric I have. I love the way it is turning out so far. I started doing this three days ago and hopefully it turns out as good as yours

    I do this, but also take the small sticky note and attach it to the board with the measurement of fabric on each board. It helps me when I need a desired amount of fabric, or just because.

    Just wondering if anyone else has used this folding tutorial in organizing their quilt room? Please post pictures so we can oooh and aaah and encourage others along the way. By the way, my fabric remains to be very neat and organized but the room is a wreck!

    nice to see you are still here alaskasunshine , a lot of people have looked at this thread
    I didn't use boards, just ruler folded, but it has been about 10 years ago and the stash still looks great.
    One, because I quit buying fabric in 2001 but more so because I put things in order after I've auditioned fabric.
