I'll show you mine...

...if you show me yours. Stash that is. Fabric STASH!. Dirty bird!

Sarah at Sarah Quilts is hosting a stash sharing link party and has invited everyone to join. Don't mind if I do...

Show me your stash...

Well here is mine in all it's glory! I have limited space (1/2 closet) to store mine. I'm sure it's more than others but one day I dream of having a beautiful white hutch with all these lovelies on display. And a cutting table. And two sewing machines set up, one for piecing and one for quilting. And a display wall. And a quilt display wall. And an iron station. Oh, a girl could dream! Post Edit - In case you were having a hard time imagining what I am thinking, Sarah from Sarah Quilts shared this link with me...Olabelhe's Studio.

Show me your stash...

Ok, back to reality. Right now, I like to use magazine boards to wrap my 1 yards into mini bolts. Anything less than that gets put in the middle basket. It's mostly FQ or large remnants from my LQS.

Show me your stash...

In the shoe boxes above is all my QALs or quilts in progress. I then have bins for flannels, knits, small remnants, quilting and embroidery supplies, layer cakes & jelly, and charm packs. Nothing too exciting.

Show me your stash...

I use chalk board labels I made on my silhouette to stay organized. I have an over-the-door shoe organizer to hold all my scraps by color or collections. Easy to see and grab from when I need to work from scraps. When it gets too full, then I take them all out and cut them into quilting squares. I hate that part of scrap busting!

I've been doing the 'stash of the month' club from Pink Castle Fabrics for the last 4 months. So far I've received yellows, greys, pinks, reds and then this month is low volume.
Show me your stash...

Here is my stack of low volume and text. :) Doesn't it look fun? I cant bring myself to start using them.
Show me your stash...

And that my friends is it. Oh, and I leave you with my sweet big relish riding a "quarter" horse.

  1. Very very nice! Thanks so much for sharing. Love that stack of texts! I've been stocking up on those myself.

    Speaking of dreaming, I found this on Pinterest the other day: http://www.olabelhe.com/shop/My_Studio.html

    1. Oh my word! I am wiping the drool off my face from that sewing room. That room alone deserves it's own pintrest board. I just made my husband come over to see it too! I think I am going to edit this post to include this link! lol Thanks for hosting the fun link party and I am new to your blog and really loving it!

  2. So organized. I keep organizing and re-organizing mine, but after a project it tends to get a bit messy.

    I also checked out that link and: oh my gosh. I could LIVE in that room.

    I only have 1/2 a closet as well, but not just for fabric, but for all of my other crafting supplies as well. One day I'd like to graduate to full closet...and dedicated table. Haha. My hopes are small for now.

    Thank you for sharing! I just love looking at little stacks of fabric.

    1. Yeah, I was still on the fence with the magazine boards. It seemed everyone was doing the ruler fold method. I think once I started storing them vertical like books it made it easier to grab and cut what ever I needed without having to refold...like my own little fabric store. lol Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! I now need to get busy on my Virtual Quilting Bee block...this one looks quick and easy :)
