I have been so busy with Julie’s quilt that I haven’t done a lot of other things and one reason is I have to enter fabric madness when I want to find THE fabric! I did some checking online and found a neat way to organize fabric. So many quilters are using comic book boards. No kidding! I had no idea! Here are some blogs that have touted this technique:
There are quite a few tutorials on the net. Here is mine!
Going from messy to snazzy!
Notice the messy top part? Well, the comic book board method makes my cupboards look like a quilt store! My mini quilt store! So neat and tidy. The best thing…well, one of the best things is that when I pull out a fabric, I don’t have to refold all the fabric around it, nothing gets messy!
Here are my steps and hints! I ordered 300 (they usually come in packs of 100 for about $9) I used my first 300 and I wrapped all 1/2 meter and more! the smaller pieces I will cut my boards in two and wrap!
The comic boards! Oh and they are archival safe….
Now tell me how far behind the times Iam and that you are all doing this! Will I be more productive? I think yes because I have been reconnecting with long lost fabric that has been hidden under piles. In my defence I was rather organized but got lazy in the refolding department.
I am linking up the The Needle and Thread Network…it’s been too long!
