Organizing

Today I spent the afternoon organizing my stash of patterns and Precuts. I have a really bad habit of purchasing precuts with a specific idea in mind and then forgetting. OR buying a pattern with a certain precut in mind and then forgetting. So today I decided to do something about it.

I slipped the pattern or a printout of the picture into the plastic of the Layer Cakes and Charm Packs…DSC_0013

 

I slipped pieces of paper with the name of the pattern I was going to use with the Jelly Rolls…DSC_0014

 

I added a print out of the pic for some of the Jelly Rolls…DSC_0015

 

I even printed out all the tutorials and inspiration quilts I had been saving for so long and added them to binders for easy access…DSC_0016

 

Feels good. Now I know which fabric is called for and which fabric is not :)

I need to show this to my husband, so he can see that I'm not the only one whose fabric has babies. :)

Rene, I think you're amazing to be so organised. You have no idea how jealous I am of all those Moda jelly rolls. Wish they were so easy to access here in UK. Your quilts are lovely!

I am so Glad that someone else's stash is that big :0)
I do the same thing, but sometimes a new pattern comes along and everything goes out the window!
