Sunday Stash #6: Organizing my Stash – The Greens

IMG_7241Recently I ran across Jeni Baker's series on The Art of Choosing.

It's a fabulous series, starting with how to recognize a fabric's overall color, and stash folding, organizing and storage.

I figured before I worked on stash building, it behooved me to do some organizing first. Most of my fabric was in large piles of flat pieces. Folding this way just makes a lot of sense for seeing what you have.

IMG_7242You can see one of my first mini-bolts in the first picture above. I'm happy to have found a way to easily store yardage. More on that later.

Unfortunately I don't have manufacturing details to share, but here's a close up of some of my favorites from the pile. I'm glad I still really like the ones I have larger pieces of. ;-)

      Thanks, Mara. I think I might need to make a top or dress for The Girl out of that fabric. I'd still have plenty left to use in a quilt.

      Time will tell in how well I can keep it organized... I'm not even sure where I'm going to put all my neatly folded piles yet. ;-)

  1. Folding makes lots of sense. When I first started reorganising my fabrics, I got a whole lot more use from them and came to appreciate them a lot more....even the little pieces! These greens are lovely and remind me of a rainforest!

      Thanks! And it's amazing how even the ugliest fabric can look good in a stack of coordinating fabric.
