And the fun begins!
The fabric ‘cage’ is up! Next step… putting away my fabric. I have 100s (if not 1000s) of pieces of fabric, not counting the ones in my scrap bins. Some are no bigger than 1/8 yd. Some started out as half or whole yards, but have been cut into odd shapes over the years. I have pristine fat 1/4s, lumpy 2 1/2 yd.-clumps, odds and ends of this and that… you understand. The ‘cage’ is supposed to hold the neat and tidy 1/8-2yd. cuts of fabric. I arrange my fabric by color in ‘cube pairs’… 1 cube of blue prints above a cube of blue batiks, 1 cube of green prints above 1 cube of green batiks. I continue around the color wheel like that, with a detour into pink and brown. I’m thinking of starting with purple in the top right corner and then adding blue, green, and brown across to the left. On the bottom, starting at the lower right, I’ll add yellow, orange, pink, and red. The blacks and whites will be stored in the cubbies (blue and white in photo) under my big board. I’ll have to show you that another day.
Oh, and here are some more bolts. The rest are on the floor to the right of the cubes. Stay tuned. I’m taking a few days off work to finish this epic task, so I’ll have oodles to share on Monday. Now, if only I had a helper… hmmm… perhaps it’s time to throw myself on the mercy of my young and energetic daughter-in-law, Vanessa. She’s a quilter herself and the most wonderful person you can imagine. And, thank goodness, she is the Queen of Organization. Upward and onward! I’ll keep you posted.
