Scrappy Storage Idea

Karen at Quilty Creations is having a Sunday Link-Up to show your stash organizing ideas, and it's so interesting to see what other quilters have come up with!

When I first started blogging in January, it didn't even occur to me that a quilter might make an entire quilt just out of scraps from her stash!  I didn't have a very big stash, and still don't, really, but I've started to look at scraps in a new way.  Especially now that my Scrappy Trip quilt is almost done!  A few years ago I saw this idea for organizing your stash in an American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  These are CD/DVD shelves, and they work really well for holding all kinds of fabric!

I've had the one on the right for quite a while, and it's full!  So this summer, I got a second shelf which is twice as wide! And now it's full too.  I guess I've started collecting more fabric!

I haven't really gotten around to organizing my stash completely by color yet, so right now there are shelves that hold different kinds of fabric, like flannel, or lines of fabric, like my Honey Honey or Hello Sunshine stashes.  And for now, that works for me!


I guess I'd better get to work on my next scrappy quilt!


  1. Whatever works, right? I could use more shelves myself.

  2. I just got back from my holiday and am playing catch up, thanks so much for linking up! Your shelves look like they hold a lot! I have a CD rack that would work great for neatly folded FQ's! I just have to get rid of all the cd's... :o)
