I have officially received one third of the Stash Fabrics Kona Club fabric. In January, I wasn’t sure how I was going to store all this fabric so I put it all back in the box it was shipped in and tucked it away in my “super closet” for later consideration. I am getting a yard of each color, and by the time it is all here, I’m pretty sure this fabric alone will be about 1.5 times the amount of fabric I normally have in my stash. So a better plan was clearly needed. But before I share the current stashing solution, let me share the last two months of color goodness!
March brought a lot of spicy, warm, earth tones. I really appreciate how the reds and oranges interspersed with the browns and creams created a lot of warmth and interest. Food for future thought when I get to the point of considering how to use all this great fabric!
The bundle this month really makes me nostalgic for the desert. I have worked through a lot of misgivings about certain colors over the years (hello pink and orange, I’m glad we’re friends now!), but olive green colors have remained a bit of a mystery to me. However, seeing it grouped here with the dusty pinks and creams, I can definitely see a path to being excited to dip into that color for a project.
When my husband was building a dividing wall to create a small bedroom for us in our cottage, he made built in bookshelves on the opposite side of the wall. We didn’t bring many books with us (not knowing how the paper would hold up in this high humidity environment), so I figure the best way to store all this lovely fabric is to put it on the bookshelves for now.
I’m keeping the fabric in protective plastic for now to protect it from the inevitable dust; a quilter does live here and works very nearby, so there is a fair amount of dust and lint around. The bags are not completely sealed, and I plan to make sure there isn’t moisture building up in them over time, but so far, so good.
Do you have a unique way or place to store your fabric stash?
