  1. I look forward to seeing how everyone else stores their fabric. We break ground on our new house (complete with sewing room) next month. Right now my fabric lives in boxes in a storage unit and my trunk!

    I like using FQs for quilting. I know that is pretty generic but I'm new to pre-cuts and quilting in general. The only FQs I've ever owned, I cut up and sed to bind my quilt (last week...).

  2. I've got a soft spot for fatquarters, because when I first became interested in sewing, I bought a ton of them. Now I store them all in a picnic basket that a basketmaking friend had given me. I like to make little pouches and cases out of them, but I do have a cute quilt pattern that takes all fat quarters and is a quilt as you go that I've started.

  107. I dont' see the question anywhere but in reading others comments, I assume you are asking how we all store scraps. I fold and shelved all pieces larger than fat quarter size. I have FQ's in another plastic shallow tote. Anything smaller than a FQ, I just put in a drawer, then when I need "time away" from the machine I will take the scraps and cut them into the biggest piece/measurement I canget out of it and then I have plastic drawer units (12x12) and I labeled the drawers, 2,1/2 - 3,1/2 - 5". I either cut the strips that width or cut squares that size. Haven't made anything with the scraps yet, but it is fun to do this much!

    ReplyDelete

  171. I love fat quarters! I have mine all folded and sorted by color in three large under the bed size containers that are stacked in my craftroom closet. I also have a smaller container that holds all of my 1930's quarters.

  175. I have a great mid-century china cabinet that I use to store most of my fabric. I fold my fat quarters, fold out according to line or color, depending on what I get.

  176. I store them in a wire basket. It's pretty to look at and I can always see what I have to work with!

  180. Gorgeous fabrics! Great reading how everyone stores their fabric. I have FQs all over. I'm setting up my sewing room so fabric is everywhere, hehe, boxes, drawers, bins and bags.

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

  184. I story my FQ's in cute little boxes with lids that i purchased at Micheal's. They look nice on my shelves and I can pull them down and look through them easily.

  185. All my fabric goes into a chest of drawers, often I'll lose the overview of what exactly I've got which makes the rediscovery during my periodic sort outs all the more exciting. Thankfully the end of this system is insight when I finally get a dedicated sewing table and bookcase to store fabric. Regarding fat quarters I only have one bundle and that is getting turned into 2 farmer's wife quilts

  186. For now I keep all of my fabric in a big rubbermaid tub in the attic so my husband won't know just how much fabric I have.

  187. My fabric is stored in sorted cardboard boxes - my fq's are in a much-worn box dedicated to my quilting cottons.
    I use them for lots of "use those fq" projects, like clutches, or little bits for scrappy projects.

  188. If I haven't cut into them I store them on a shelf in my cupboard where I can see them for inspiration. If I have cut them I re-fold them and store them in a plastic box with a clear lid so I can see what I have left.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  189. I have an open shelf above my sewing table where I keep all my fabric. Folded and stacked by size and color. If I can't fit any more, I (try) don't buy more....

  191. I have my stash stored in boxes stacked in a corner of my living room. My dream is for a space of my own!

  192. I have them in big ziplock bags on my desk, and I take them out a few times a week to pet them and decide what they shall be made into. Some of them just get petted because they aren't big enough yet :)
