Snowy day project

Spurred on by this tutorial on organizing your stash, the arrival of a fat quarter for my first ever quilting bee block, and the overnight fall of a foot of wet snow I decided to dedicate today to sorting and folding my printed fabrics and putting them in some sort of order.  Of course, I have no idea how to store these lovely piles yet but am determined  NOT go to Walmart today.  That would definitely ruin my whole fun snow-day-in-the-house project. 

Here is the fat quarter that Jenni sent and some of the fabrics I pulled so far to make her block.  I'm kinda liking this mixture and am having a swell time pulling fabrics and trying them out.  So much easier now with them all together and in color piles.   Now I'm off to fold all my solids and stack them up neatly.  What are you doing today?


  1. SUCH pretty piles!! *swoon* Best thing for a rubbish weather day, I agree!

  2. I love the combination!! I can't wait to see the finished project.

  3. Your stacks for fabric look luscious! I especially love the first photo in your post-- makes me want to dive in and sew!

  4. my hope is that sewing will fit in somewhere today. need to make it happen.....

    happy sewing!

  5. Your piles of fabric are inspiring! My pinwheel quilt is finished now, so I think I want to try something with some hand quilting next.
