I've decided it's time to reorganize my quilt fabrics. I did that with my fibre art supplies and it made such a difference! So here's the plan.
#1 - get clear project boxes or large ziploc bags. Got it.
#2 - sort fabrics into piles that make me happy. Instead of "yellow pile, blue pile, red pile", I need "these go great together" piles. Include a note about any specific plans for them. See below:
|next summer's beach blanket! (YESSSSSSSSSSSS)|
|chinese coins w/ dark fabric for vertical lines - for Etsy|
|cherry lemonade - triangles with white|
|pretty large bedroom quilt to sell - or a big girl quilt for my daughter?|
|summer log cabin? sailboats?|
|Moda FQs - winter blues and greens... GIVE AWAY CONTEST!|
#4. Out of all the piles of left overs, fill a box with suitable prints for landscapes. These are things like earthy batiks, small leaf prints, grasses, bark, blues for sky and water, tie dye for sunsets, neutrals & beige for fields). Done that. Sorry no photo...
#5. EVERYTHING ELSE gets sliced into 2" strips and chucked in a big bucket. This will be for super-scrappy quilts and binding. Will do!
I feel great about this! I especially like that several projects have just bounced off the shelves. lol As for the next give-away, I'll post that on Friday. I need to decide what I want from YOU first. : )
