Sharing….

My Stash
Pat Sloan at the Learning Center on the Quilting Gallery has been doing a series of organizing tips for sewing spaces.  And I’ve taken another look at my stash:

001002

It’s not very large, and I have some organization to the fat quarters (top pic) that makes sense….at least to me!  Sometimes I think I’d like to have walls of fabric like those seen in some of the studios featured on Pat’s post, but then I feel guilty at the fabric just sitting there doing nothing – and when I want to start a new project, I have to go and buy more fabric.  Most of what I have is leftovers, and actually there are times when they’ve come in handy to fill out a corner here and there, to do a Quilt-along, to practice a new technique.  Anyway, it works for me!
I’m linked to The Learning Center, trying to win the BIG prize LOL!
Happy organization!                    Blessings, Peg

  2. Good luck! I am cutting back on giveaway entries because I just don't have time!

  3. Your stash looks quite organized to me: you can see everything and have easy access. As for more fabrics - it is easy to get bored with what we see for a long time, and unless one is a super productive quilter a big stash would necessarily contain a lot of "old" fabric.

  5. My stash is in boxes and bags and my hope chest... I have a plan for organizing it and it looks great on paper! One day it will be real wood and baskets instead of just the imaginary kind.
