Organization is sweet!

I'm still folding. I guess there's about 40 yards of fabric in the goodwill bag. Stuff I'll never use, lots of poly and upholstery. Still a little to go, but everything is fitting in its new space and giving me a ton of extra space. I'm not normally the most organized person but am hoping that this time, it will be easier to maintain. While I thought it was organized before, things weren't folded uniformly and that made it very difficult to get everything back into its proper bin, but this time, I folded using the ruler method and everything folded to about 6 1/2 inches wide. If I can pick up one more bin in the grocery today for my batiks, I should be all set. I posted a pic on the old blog to show how full the fabric closet was, now I'll have to take another to show how organized it is. I am tired of folding and organizing tho. Now, I'm ready to quilt and I need to piece three small star blocks to border a cmas applique block. Hope to get them finished today. And, I have fabric to serge and wash so I can get it in the bins. I was surprised to find unwashed fabric in my stash. Thought I'd taken care of that the last time I "organized".

Here are blocks 5 and 6 of the cmas quilt. Course, there are still embroidery details to add. Hopefully, I'll have block 7 by end of day.

Take care and have a great Sunday. I'll be trying to get to some quilting. Lane

Your blocks are really nice. I know what you mean about the organizing. I did that and posted about the ruler folding method on the old blog. It sure did help me out. I put more fabric in my small space than I had before. It sure does make a difference.

You know, I've never been moved to make a Christmas quilt, but I absolutely adore your blocks. Maybe one day I'll drop the Scrooge act and join the fun.
