The batik scrap baskets are a mess and the bags of scraps are in the garage buried by my son's family furniture due to their ongoing remodeling and addition. I have a mountain of empty plastic storage boxes. The before post is here.
I am happy with the fabric organizing because I can see what I have without opening and lifting lots of boxes. I am unhappy with the scrap storage.
I put the Accuquilt dies on a metal shelf in the basement next to the longarm that has my thread boxes on it. I will move the Accuquilt out of the fabric room on top of my flat file storage also down there. Where it is now is awkard to use it and get to.
All the large yardage pieces are jammed in the guest room closet. I need a second low rod installed to try and hang this fabric. Unquilted tops on hangers are on the top rod.
I wish I had it all done and did not have to monkey around with it anymore. Sigh. I believe this will help me in planning and making quilts easier.
|Batiks by color. Hand dyes are the middle bottom shelf. Have to figure some quilts with them.|
|Reclaimed bookcase, 2 boxes on top with whites and solids. All by color and type.|
|Full cupboard with collections, Kaffes on top, texts, grays, florals.|
|By color, 2 cupboard shelves|
|Middle cupboard shelf- landscape fabrics and odd to classify|
|Pre-cut boxes, not ideal place but neat once I file the strips on top.|
|Slim closet in sewing room, precut small squares, trays, extra binding strips, etc.|
|The awful messy batik scrap baskets, Yikes!|
