Binding four quilts last month caused some minor pain in my right hand so I decided to take a break. But , there’s always stuff to do. I decided to re-organize after being inspired by this fabric folding tutorial which uses comic book boards. You put the boards within pieces larger than a fat quarter to guide the folding process. The boards can be bought at most comic books stores and it should about $9-10 dollars for a hundred pieces of cardboard.
My stash used to live in bins but I don’t think that is the perfect solution after they’ve been folder. I like the shelves but I think I would prefer a closed cabinet so it would look neater.
My scraps used to live in one bin but I find I often looks for scraps in a certain colour so I got new small bins (8.5 x 11) at Canadian Tire. The bins are shallow but there’s enough room. My bins are for red, orange/yellow, green, blue, purple/pink and neutrals (black, white, grey, brown).
I also have one bin for those scraps that don’t fall in any of my pre-defined colour categories.
