If you remember from this post, I re-did everything not too long ago. (ok, it was longer ago than I realized...) Here is how everything looked at the last house tour:
I really like the mini-bolts, but I was at the point where things were getting put away two layers deep, and I was forgetting about stuff I had already bought. This is how I ended up with several yards of the same Architextures print. Not that I mind about having more of that, but I do love some variety instead of buying the same things over and over, you know? At least it means my taste is consistent ;-)
I wish I had taken a before picture recently, but I just jumped in one day and started moving things around.
First I took everything off the bolts, and was left with a hefty stack of empties...
Then I put everything back all pretty :-)
I organize fabric by size of cut, and then by color. The FQs are on the second shelf, and I honestly try not to buy too many of those anymore. They're just gone too fast!
The half yards are on the little shelves to the right, and the 1-2 yard cuts are on the top two shelves. The second and third shelf have collections that I want to keep together instead of organizing by color. There are also a couple stacks that are pulls for projects I haven't started already. I also kept the solids on the mini-bolts because I use the foam board to label the solids with maker and color, since they don't have a printed selvage.
I like it! We'll see how long it lasts...
P.S. this post makes me think I need to invest in a decent camera (i.e. not an iphone!) sooner rather than later.
