How do you organise your stash?
For a while I have had mine in four baskets by size of the cut and within the basket by colour but it had all got a bit messy and even thought I knew in my head that I had several 'collections'of fabrics going on I thought after the sale today I'd better sort and see how close I was to having enough to do each quilt in my head.
So I tipped the lot over the floor
and bundled them up in bales either by particular projects wheer I knew what I was going to do with them or by colour theme - this is my Japanese bale.
Then I put the bales in the baskets. ( Wadding and scraps are in different - large- leather boxes)
Of course as they were full before I now have a bale of 'won't fit in the basket big pieces'. It is also interesting to note that I have two full baskets of African Fabrics! If I didn't know better I'd say it was an obsession. As I do know better I am saying that it is a 'series in planning.'
Also this does not deal with all the quilts actually started and the piled up dressmaking fabric downstairs. I have decided that a good plan would be to use some of the stash to make bags to keep all my ongoing projects in.
Sadly as I did all this I forgot to photo what I bought today except for this panel which of course goes in the Japanese bundle for a Kitty Pippen inspired quilt with sashiko..... some day!
