A major fabric management crises from weeks of neglecting to return fabric to stash in an orderly fashion came to a head this week when I could not find my Clover Wonder Clips (for binding) nor my scissors .... really frustrating.
And so I spent almost 2 days hauling fabric, ironing, folding, and stacking. I like to arrange my fabric stash by color but this time I also separately stashed the low volume - light/white background - fabrics. Pictured above are all low volume fabrics; fat quarters or smaller and most have been cut into. It's quite a task ironing and folding irregular pieces of fabric into a the same size format.
Before and After
Of course in the process of tidying I found several great
hoarded hidden treasures which I am now committed to using rather stashing. A tidy stash also means there is room for more fabric!
Inside Voices II - Low Volume bundle from Westwood Acres (Etsy)
Clockwise (above) starting with the large scale yellow floral fabric:

Arriving just in time to be added to stash is a low volume FQ bundle from Westwood Acres. Amanda has cleverly been collating low volume fabrics and this is the second installment in a series of Inside Voices fabric bundles.
Both the first and second installment of Westwood Acres ~ Inside Voices have not surprisingly sold out quickly. Inside Voices III is expected to be available early April 2013.

PS By the way, after two days of tidying I did find my Clover Wonder Clips - just where I always keep them ~ right there in the container with Basting Pins. So crazy.
