Peek into my stash

I was watching yesterdays posts, as folks posted about their fabric stash as Sarah asked “I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours” and created a linky party for today. I loved the idea. I thought I would let my photos do most of the talking so here goes…

First off let me show my latest addition to my stash that I purchased from Hawthorne Threads. It is Just My Type by Patty Young for Michael Miller:

Ok, now onto my addiction (yes!!! I will be the first one to admit it is an addiction). I store my fabrics using comic board inserts and store most of my fabric in my work table. At the moment, it is a little messy and I need to store all those fabrics onto somewhere πŸ™‚

On one side, I store collections and solids. You may be able to recognize…Lotta Jansdotta Glimma, Stof Uno, Lizzy House Constellations, Indian Summer, and some Tula Pink. Not too bad right???

The other side I organize by color…and I am running out of space.

Finally I showed my new project storage and scraps the other week, but this book-case also stores my linens, charm backs and corduroy.

That is my stash, I am linking up with Sarah over @ Sarah Quilts.

    I just said to my husband, and I quote “Honey, I don’t have nearly enough fabric.” πŸ˜‰

    Your stash is gorgeous! I love how it is organized. You can shop right in your own stash- just as it should be! Thanks so much for letting us peek.

    Looks gorgeous! I have thought about putting mine over comic book boards, but I don’t know if they’d fit in my shelves very well, so I’ve never gone out to buy some boards and try it. I don’t like my current storage solution (with everything in stacks) because it’s so hard to get out whatever fabric is at the bottom of a pile – sometimes you pull out the left stack and the right one comes with it – so maybe it’d be worth it to try, if I can find a store that sells comic book boards.

      I buy mine of amazon.com. If you want a couple to try out I can send a couple. I love them as it just keeps everything neat and tidy πŸ™‚

        I’m just too cheap to pay shipping, though probably it’d be cheaper to buy them online than in a store. (Or one of those versions of cheaper where it comes out the same – the product is cheaper, but the shipping makes it equal to shopping in a store.) Anyway, not to worry about sending out a couple – you can if you like, but no pressure either!

    Michelle, I am SO GLAD you shared! Your stash is gorgeous, and so well-cultivated. You don’t just have a lot of fabric, you have a lot of like, the best fabric. Your system is very attractive, too, the cuts look so great folded and stored neatly in the white shelving.

    (If you ever decide to open a fabric store…I think you’ve got display down pat!)

      Thanks so much Laura….unfortunately I am terrible at shipping things on time πŸ˜‰ so I do not think a fabric store is in m future. I loved the fabrics you shared yesterday – you made me want to post and share :-)….BTW it is on its way….

      I love how it is all in one place. It also give me a great indicator and allows me to have a good stash but a confined stash – otherwise my habit could be much worse.

    What a lovely space you have! So neat and tidy too! Love all your fabrics and the variety you have. One day I hope to have a rainbow stash! Also it is awesome that you can see it all so well.
