My Stash


I didn't sew or play with fabric yesterday. I worked on page layouts for the magazine. So no pictures to share.

Sooooo, I thought I'd share a picture of some of my stash. I had these bins with drawers when we lived in Birmingham. The movers wrapped each one in heavy plastic and moved them without unpacking the drawers. The upstairs laundry room was the perfect spot for them! It's just down the hall from my studio. The space only fit 3 of them and I do have a fourth one. That one lives in the closet you see on the left of the photo.

I printed the labels, laminated them, punched holes in the top, and hooked them to the drawers with zip ties.

Is this all my fabric? Heck, no! I also store LOTS of fabric in the closet of my studio. And larger yardage is stored in the closet of one of the guest bedrooms.

I really need to go through all these drawer and sort and fold. Maybe someday?

  1. I bought these bins from IKEA a couple of years ago and love them! I did stack two of them, which freed up some space. And no, it isn't all of my fabric either :-)

  3. well lets be honest a quilter cannot have too much fabric! I look at storage similar to this every time I go to ikea but it is finding room for it and I would really like to downsize not get bigger

  4. I have one of those bins and had planned to get more, but when I moved I no longer had room for more. Now my fabric is all over the place. One day maybe I can get it all in the same room again.
