I was working on a customer quilt today and looking through my fabric for something to use for another border when I realized I had no idea what was on the shelves. I have been either making quilts from Island Batik or customer provided material for so long that I had forgotten what I had in stock. Of course, the fact that everything was just stuffed wherever it fit didn't help. I had just read an article on line about using specially made boards for organizing fabric so decided to cut some out of a cardboard box and see how it worked. I kept at it for most of the day and now have all my larger pieces of fabric nicely stored on the shelves. There is still quite a bit of smaller pieces plus what has been piled in one corner of the room waiting to be used.
The ends of the fabric were pinned to keep them intact but I am planning on making loops from narrow elastic that can be just slid over roll. I am hoping this is the start of a new permanently organized stash.
My day for the Island Batik blog hop is coming up soon. I am going to have a lot of fabric that is left over after making the quilt. None is less that 2.5" square and most are 5 inches. To be eligible for the draw, you will need to be a follower of this blog.
