Stash Organization

Hello, there! I'm Flaun of I Plead Quilty! guest posting about fabric.

Do you organize your stash at all? How do you do it?

After months of creativity, not much cleaning up, and a general dislike of how my fabric was stored, I decided it was time to reorganize my stash.

Keepin' it real
See that stack of fabric? Lazy!

I sorted all the fabric that had been piling up into color groups (I had my stash already sorted that way), and decided to refold the whole shebang.

Organized, but still a bit untidy.

First, I ironed any wrinkly fabric and laid it out on my cutting table.

I lined my long, straight ruler up with the edge of the fabric...

Line the edges of the fabric up as you flip.

Keep the fabric taut.

Done flipping!

Once I reached the end of the fabric, I slid the ruler out of the end of the fabric...

...and folded it in half.

After a week of folding, here's the stash!

Pretty!
Okay, keeping it real. I still have three more shelves to fold, but won't it look lovely when I'm done?!

There's another shelf below this on that didn't fit in the pic.
