Cindy reporting in after a chaotic finish to my barn block quilt. In order to get it quilted and in the mail before Christmas, I had to send it off to my quilter, Ms. SJ, last week. Wait until you see the finished quilt, it’s beautiful.
Needless to say, my sewing marathon created chaos in my sewing room. It was a scrappy quilt and I had scraps everywhere! Drawers of fabric were dumped and scattered! I was always looking for just the right fabric…you know the drill!
After I finish a big project like that, I try to clean up and get organized for my next project.
Gasp! Why are my blacks and grays mixed in with my purples? AND there’s a scrap of gold and a big scrap of white in there too!
Looks like I’m going to have to bring order to this chaos before I get started on my next project!
Do you have some tips for organizing fabrics? Let us know!

I have my scraps organized (using that term very loosely) by color. However, I need to find a good solution for storage for them. My space is small, and I’ve yet to find a good working solution. Bins are likely my best bet, but nowhere to store them
I’ve been waving a magic organizing wand…and it doesn’t work.
Chela — you made me laugh out loud!
😂Good! We all need a good laugh these days.
I organize by color but I have the same thing happen where it starts to look like I had sorted by color while under the influence and I catch a dark navy in the black fabric…You are smart to clean up between projects!
