It's that time of the year again

With starting a new year, I decided that I would once again reorder my stash.  Part of that decision came because I can't find my finished blocks in order to finish up the teapot BOM.  That led me to realize that I had better get organized again.  This time I will give away what I don't want or think I will use.  I'm still keeping scraps because they go in a different storage area.

So this is what I'm starting with...





Keep in mind that I pulled these out of bins and drawers so it looks a little worse than what it was.  I also have noticed that some of my bins are broken so they will be thrown out.

I am going to put everything that I no longer want in one of the broken bins so that it won't go back into the stash.

I have managed to get my good fabric into one bin.



By good I mean my costly fabric.  That's the fabric that I bought from a quilt store or some lines like Stonehenge.  I am not putting the JoAnne's, Hobby Lobby, WalMart fabric in that bin.  I'll still buy from those three because it fits my budget and we don't have a local quilt shop anymore.  They have nice fabric also but you need to be more careful in your selection.

Next step is to put my normal background material (whites, blues, green, black, etc.) in containers.  Then I'll look and see what I have left.  It's a good thing to start the new year with it getting organized.  I know it won't stay that way but at least I'm attempting to start it off that way.  :)

Time to get back to the sorting.  Happy quilting.
