I did a bad thing today. I went out in public. I did it for a good cause. I supported my local quilt shop and pre-ordered for a quick pick up.
I picked up 52 batiks, 1 meter each and 2 lengths of wide backs.
As I was folding, I took a few pictures to show how I use my 6" wide cutting ruler.
I start with the selvage edges of the fabric to my left and the factory fold on my right. I lay my ruler over the fabric and start folding the ruler over and over.
Once folded on the ruler, I slide the ruler out of the folds and fold the length in half.
These folded fabrics stack beautifully in my IKEA Billy Bookcases. I can see at a glance what fabrics I have.
So, now that I've got all these new fabrics organized and put away, I need to choose a pattern to work on.
Mmmmm. Maybe it will be a new Studio 180 Designs pattern. I'll keep you posted.
