How To KonMari the Fabric Stash from Blossom Heart Quilts

Whether it’s because your cupboards are overflowing, you’re moving house, or you just watched Marie Kondo on Netflix and want to put that motivation to good use, there are times when we look at our fabric stashes and ponder going through it all to get rid of the pieces we don’t use, love, and/or want anymore. But it can be overwhelming, knowing where to start, and how and where to destash.

I’m most certainly no KonMari expert, but I have just moved houses a couple of months ago, and into my own sewing room, which ...

Archaeological Accomplishment for the Month of August: I Have Unearthed My Cutting Table and Rediscovered a Window! from Cheeky Cognoscenti

There Was a Cutting Table Hiding Beneath Those Mountains of Fabric!
Does your work space ever get so cluttered that it's literally paralyzing?  Mine had gotten to the point that I was stalled out on several works-in-progress because I only had about a square foot of this table surface available for cutting and measuring.  That was fine for making those decadent little string triangles, but I didn't have anywhere near enough room for:

  • Measuring and adjusting the pieced borders of my almost-completed Jingle BOM quilt top
  • Measuring, cutting and piecing the backing fabric for my Paint Me a ...

It's been a while since I posted the previous two installments sharing my fabric organization/storage method: yardage & medium pieces. There's a reason for that (other than life getting away from me).
I'm not quite sure my "small scraps" storage method has been 100% finalized. I'll share where I'm at with this and, if you have any input, please share.

Fabric Organization, Part 2 from twiddletails

In my previous post I shared how I organize scraps between 1/4 yard and 1/2 yard.

The rest is a bit of an experiment.

My larger pieces of fabric (> 1/2 yard) have always just been folded up and stored in a tote. I never even looked at them and, frankly, was pleasantly surprised at what I found when I started looking through them.
After some online research, I did the following:
I decided to "file" them. I ordered these magazine backing boards from Amazon.com. They're acid free and not too thick.


Next, I found these ...

Still here...and fabric organization from twiddletails

OMG! A blog post!
I tried using my iPad to post but Blogger doesn't seem to have an IOS app. Let me know if I'm wrong. I'm contemplating migrating the blog to Wordpress.

Anyhow, in the mean time I'm trying to get a hold on my personal fabric stash. I don't have a whole lot since I have a store full of bolts to choose from and I feel guilty buying fabric, but that will hopefully change in the (fairly) near future.
It's more about being pro-active. I'll be saving some yardage of ...
