Friday my new bookcase/cupboard was delivered. I am so in love with it! The color perfectly matches another primitive cupboard in my studio and the size of this is perfect! Here it is against the wall. I placed a fat quarter pack on it just to get an idea of how it would look loaded with fat quarters. The cupboard is pine with Candleberry paint that has been antiqued outside and the inside has been stained a walnut color.
Here is a closeup. You can click on any of the photos to enlarge them. I spent all weekend going through the fabric I had stored in tubs, baskets and drawers. I ironed all the loose fat quarters and re-folded them to my preferred method. Call me weird, but I love ironing fabric!
Much to my astonishment, I don't have nearly as much stash as I thought I did! Can you believe it? Look below - there is still room for more fabric! OK, I have to admit that I have two large tubs of leftover scraps and one tub of nothing but yardage, but all in all, this isn't bad!
I still have to fill up the drawers below but haven't decided what to put in them just yet.
Now that I have all my fabric out in the open, I think it will be much easier to use it up! I found my taste has changed a lot since I began quilting. Plus, I found quite a bit of fabric and even some kits that I will never use. Hence, I'll be having a stash sale soon and my friend Stephanie at Loft Creations will join in as well! Stay tuned for the date! Everything will be at bargain prices! Given the price of fabric in quilt shops these days, this will be a sale not to miss!
