Stash Report 12/15/13 & Storage

Last week my bee held their Christmas party and we had a rob-your-neighbor gift exchange. I was gifted a charm pack of Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille for Moda, and some lovely lavender sachets. Eye candy!

So, about 3/4 yard added to the stash. Nothing out that I can count yet, although I will be able to count it by the end of the month.  Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times; check out everyone else's stash reports over there.

Vicki Welsh over at Field Trips in Fiber is hosting the Real Studio Tour and this week's topic is storage.  Here's how I store my fabric stash. DH took the closet doors off and installed shelves, and I keep my fabrics sorted by color in these baskets.

These baskets keep most of the dust and light off the fabrics. Whenever I'm looking for something, I do have to take out the basket and root through it, but that's actually a good thing because I'm reminded of what I have.
 
I'm starting to accumulate a lot of scraps and I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone else manages their scraps over at Vicki's.
 
And in case you missed my earlier post, AQS has ACCEPTED my book proposal!!! YAY - I'm so excited! Now the hard work begins!

  3. Congrats on the book proposal! I know it is a lot of work. Please let us know (as if you wouldn't!) when it's available. I can't say that I do a very good job organizing my stash, but I blogged about my organization of projects here: http://hillsidequilter12.blogspot.com/2013/11/a-tip-for-tuesday.html

  4. Your baskets are a great storage solution for your fabrics. The hard part now begins, writing the patterns and making the quilts - congrats on your new book.
