Hope Valley and Dolce
Remember this post and my little stash storage conundrum?
I was so unhappy with the way my stash is stored and kept jealously looking at other quilters' stash storage. But at the same time I just can't get myself to take my collections apart and sort by color although I probably really should. Well, what I decided to do, at least for now, is fold the fabrics so I can actually see all of them when opening the drawers rather than just piling them on top of each other.
And the result is this:
Woodland Tails and Backyard Baby
Chevrons and some Patty Young
Patty Young Andalucia
... and Lush
... and Sanctuary (and some Tina Givens Haven's Edge)
... and Flora and Fauna
Joel Dewberry, Heather Ross and Sandi Henderson
Pat Bravo and some Far Far Away
the Laura Gunn drawer
my beloved Echo drawer
lots of kiddies fabrics
FMF and Loulouthi
the Layer Cake drawer (some Central Park, Sweetwater, Summersville and newest additions are Simply Color, Juggling Summer and Cuzco, can't wait to work with those)
stripes and some solid pieces
Laurie Wisbrun and some Far Far Away
Echino and some more FFA
and last but not least some random pieces and blenders, mainly stripes or dots for some reason.
With this new way of arranging my fabrics I will hopefully be more tempted to actually use them all and won't forget what I have as I can see every bit of fabric when I open the drawers. I know sorting by color would probably be better and make it easier for me to break out of the habit of using whole collections rather than mixing them. But this is at least a first step.
What do you think?
Lots of love and enjoy your summer (we are away in Germany until the end of the month, and I will make sure I pop over to Frau Tulpe in Berlin. yay)
