I started by just doing the fabric on the shelves........988.5 Yards
All of those square plastic bins have my UFO's in them. The shoebox bins have my block swaps, string blocks, 4 patch squares and my binding for specified quilts.
I then found more fabric when opening drawers. 30.5 yards
I then counted the fat quarters.
I then decided to count the kits.....I should have stopped before this step. 1043 yards
|Ryan McKenna Kits (there are 5 series seen here)|
|My pile of quilt Kits and the cat Zeus.|
|My BOM, there are 3 different ones in there and they are all paper piecing.|
So my grand total is.............2267 yards.
Is that a lot of fabric or what. I am totally amazed, and the ironic thing is I am always wanting to buy more fabric.
As my mom always tell me fabric is my "crack" addiction. I am starting to believe her more and more. Will I tell her that, probably not.
I also thing that it is weird that with this much fabric I don't really think it takes up much of the house. I guess I am really good at organizing.....
Now was this a good thing, honestly I can say I think it was. It just lets me know that I do have plenty to work on and that I can use this up and shop my stash first. I don't always have to run to the LQS and buy what I need. I think now that I can see the fabric it will also allow me to find what I need quickly.
I am now going to take a break and sew for awhile before I decide to take the time and tackle my patterns. That is another monster on it's own.
So if you ever get the desire to clean, organize and measure your stash you might enjoy it. It is an eye opening experience.
