Now you know that’s not quite true!
My main stash is the one which I use every time I start an art quilt
and it fits in three shoe boxes, organised into colour families where possible. The boxes have tight-fitting clip-on lids which keeps the dust out, and I always put a bar of (old) fragrant soap inside anything I store to discourage moths and other creep crawlies.
My specialty fabrics such as conversation prints, and backing fabrics (just a few!) are in plastic bins that are about 24 inches x 18 inches x 12 inches. I use these fabrics for grandbaby quilts, quilts for people with special interests like ducks, or for hospital quilts for kids. My tiny collection of batiks sits in a tiny plastic bin on a shelf in the studio van.
The shoe boxes are not your average shoe boxes either. They fit six pairs of shoes and are designed to fit under a bed or at the base of a walk-in wardrobe.
Here’s how the fabrics fit
