I packed all my supplies, except the hair dryer, into this rolling trolley full of drawers. I have had it beside my sewing machine with threads, needles, and all things quilty. As I packed the contents, it occurred to me that it was the better solution to journal supplies storage.
It turned out to be very successful.
Here it is closed:

The big yellow and white book is to be my travel journal (an altered book).
Here’s the best bit
This drawer has plastic cups to store pens and pencils. I have looked at so many journaling websites, I can’t remember whose site this idea came from. Perhaps by chance you may know so I can credit her. Thank you to her anyway.
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.
