Last weekend, I decided that my sewing space was getting pretty messy. I decided that the best thing to do was to do a little work and organize all of my fabrics again. I’d done a pretty good keeping my fabrics organized by type and color, but when I used fabric, I was just shoving it back in the drawer. It was making everything wrinkly and hard to find.
So, I ripped everything out of the drawers and ironed the worst offenders before putting them back.
I can see what I have now, but it also made me realize just how much fabric I really had. A LOT. I have 3 drawers filled with nothing but quilting cottons. They are almost all fat quarters, so I should be good for quilting fabrics unless I need yardage for backgrounds.
Of course, if you have any yardage you would like to donate (for background fabric) so I can minimize the rest of me stash I’ll be happy to take it.
I’ll also take any time anyone wants to donate to quilt my finished tops. I have 2 tops with back ready for quilting, and a top that I will be making a back for shortly. Alternately, who do you use for your quilting? My local long-arm quilters are booked out at least a year in advance. They do fabulous work, but when you work as quickly as I do, it’s impossible to know you need something quilted a year in advance.
