Organzing Fabric..What Fun!!!

Today's post is going to be short, because I can't wait to go out into the cottage and start organizing my fabrics.  My goal is to tackle the totes, which contain fabric not delegated to a project!!!  It is a lovely winter day (spring is right around the corner) in Wisconsin.  The temperature is 78'. Who would think we had 17" of snow fall, on the ground, only a couple of weeks ago?  Wonder if today will be another record breaking day for temps?  I digress...back to organizing fabric.

I would like to share a link to The Smashed Peas and Carrots Blog, where Maggie posted wonderful pictures of her fabric stash. 

Maggie's picture of how she stores fabric using comic backer boards.
Storing fabric on backer boards sounded like a wonderful idea.  So, off I went to Duluth, MN to see if Collector's Connection in the Village Square Mall (If you crave some delicious ice cream... Bridgemans is also located in the mall)...

Doesn't this sundae look good?
 I digress again...back to organizing fabric and looking for backer boards.  Sure enough, Collector's Connection sells two types of backer boards.  I purchased a pack of 100 Comic Care, 7" x 10-1/2", backer boards for $10.99. (The other package had boards that were a 1/2" wider.)  Had to chuckle when the owner asked if I was going to need 100 boards...I told him not to worry, because I can always come back to the shop if I need more. Then I realized he was wondering if I needed the 100 count package. Guess he doesn't quilt and have a fabric stash.

So I am off to organize my fabrics!  I will let you know if this technique works for me....it has to be better than storing fabric in totes and  forgetting what fabric has been purchased.

Time to open up the windows and enjoy the fresh air,
