Over the past couple of years, I have been adding three drawer units to each of my fabric cubbies. Originally, each cube had haphazard stacks of fabric that would get messier and messier every time I would look through them. It was a lot easier on me and my budget to do one here and one there as the mood struck. This week, I completed the last of this project.
I saved the best for last. I called this my every color cube. If I had any doubt at all about what color a fabric should go with, it got tossed in the every color cube. The reason this one was so much fun to sort is that each fabric is distinctive enough for me to remember its story. Why it was originally purchased, what project(s) it was used for, etc. It was a good walk down quilting memory lane.
I spread it out on my cutting table as best I could. It was a very loose interpretation of light to the right and dark to the left.
There are some great pieces in there.
Here's how it looks all organized in drawers. There is black with bright, traditional, Amy Butler, white with bright, 30s and floral, and stripes and novelty. Loosely organized of course. There is often room for interpretation.
Now I will be able to focus on the quilt making rather than get frustrated searching for a fabric. When I told my family I was finished with this project, they responded with a "yeah, right". And while I absolutely am finished with the three drawer units, there are those bins of scraps to deal with. Hmmm...
