I have been organizing my house lately. I blame Marie Kondo. Netflix recently released a series starring this Japanese organizing consultant and just like how the food shows make me hungry, the Tidying Up show makes me want to organize.
I have been moving through my house, organizing each area. The bedrooms, the kitchen, the bathrooms, and the closets. This week I am organizing my fabric.
I started out with about 4 large tubs of fabric in many forms.
I dumped each one out and sorted it into three piles. Keep, Give away, and Throw away.
Then I sorted the Keep pile into colors.
I then folded each one and put them in fun little plastic bins.
Then I labeled each bin and stacked them on a shelf in my closet.
Before, when I start a quilt, I have a good idea what kind of color scheme I would like. So I would dig down into one of my bins a few inches, decide that I didn't really have what I wanted, then go buy some fabric. I really had no idea what was in the tubs of fabric.
Now, I can pull out a little box, and see everything I have.
Maybe I can take a break from buying fabric. Probably not, but it was a nice thought.
Happy quilting, or fabric organizing!
