Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I'm wondering how other quilters keep track of their fabric. I often ask others whose fabric they used in a particular project. Most of the time they are able to tell me. I would draw a big blank. Do you document your purchases, keep a swatch, know who the manufacturer is, the designer and the name of the line? Inquiring minds want to know!
If you're talking about my table it is 32" high and six feet long. I did have it made and it is on wheels!
I bought the 3 drawer roller carts about waist height from Walmart they are see through, so each color goes into a drawer so I can see the fabrics. They also roll right under my cutting table and sewing table.
My larger bunches of fabric I have in large tubs on a four shelf that my father the carpenter built into the wall for me. I have 25 buckets. All color coded, years ago I clipped each fabric put into a binder that had labeled numbers. Over the years the binder is out of date as some of the fabrics are gone now. Some day I will get in those to organize them again. There are some great old fabrics that will fit nicely into some quick quilts.
I wish I was more organized with my fabric stash to help you out , but if you seen my stash you would know I'd need an extra room just for the info. I love fabric and I don't have any special love for any color or style, I just buy it all and maybe one day put it to use. I am an official fabric -holic. The only way I keep track of any fabric is put it in a quilt. My newest pic is an example of my sickness.LOL. Don't waste time organizing them, just go for it and have fun, you'd be surprised what comes out of being a fabric juncky.
