fabric storage

I am very excited about a big change in my fabric storage. My Hubby, son and Grandson turned this


into this




Oh, what fun it will be to fill those shelves. I used Ikea billy bookcases, and I splurged on the glass doors. What I have been using, is a hodge podge of goodwill bookcases. I have lost a lot of room with shorter bookcases. I liked these because they almost go to the ceiling. They are really lovely to behold. I almost don't want to mess them up with fabric.

It's the first of July already and time to reassess my goals for the month.
1. I want to finish allietare. It is on the long arm and ready to quilt.


2. I want to finish en provence in reproduction fabrics. It is a top and ready to make a back and quilt.



3. I want to make my swap blocks
4. I want to keep current on my rainbow scrap challenge projects.

  2. This is a great idea. Going up is better than going out because it saves your floor space.

  7. Good luck on your goals Good for you for wanting to get some UFOs done. I may need to make the one big Bonnie Hunter mystery UFO to a OMG sometime. But it'll take at least two as I don't have the top done. Hope you succeed on these goals! And, wow! I love your shelving. Don't forget to show it to us when it is full.

  8. Hi again Maggie! Oh, that shot with your grandson in the bookcase is just precious. You'll have to print out that photo to keep you smiling as you fill your new shelves, and later as you peruse them. ~smile~ Roseanne

  10. Ahhh....those are some sweet shelves for your fabric! When I move to my "forever home"....I will certainly look into putting these in my sewing room as well! Your Grandson sure is a silly guy! :-)

  11. Beautiful shelving for your sewing room! I have multiple tall cabinets in my room, and you'll love these. I haven't finished my Allietare either. Yours will be beautiful, and the En Provence too. I look forward to seeing them finished!

  12. Nice bookcases! And I don't think you will be able to fit any fabric in them especially with that little cutie in there. Don't you just love grandchildren1

  14. Beautiful bookcases! And a unique spot for a grandson to be - he won't fit in that space very long, they grow up so quickly. Thanks for linking up with Design Wall Monday, Judy.

  16. Your shelving space will be wonderful. Too bad your grandson will have to come out occasionally to eat. He is darling.
