This is how I did mine.  It works a treat, even with fat quarters and
long lengths.  Quick to do.  I didn't fold the really, really long
stuff in half at the end, but the rest are all neatly stacked in
Useful Boxes.  I can choose fabric or just browse very easily.

Neat isn't it.  One of those moments when you think, "Why didn't I
think of this?"

Any time you like, Nana, kettle's on the Aga, and tea's in the pot (or
coffee, if you prefer)

But bring your thermals, the Sewing room has no heating, and it's
hovering between -3 and +3 Celsius at the moment!

And we're _grown-ups_, so WE are _allowed_ to touch. lol

And I can introduce you to all my gadgets...

Thank you so much.

Re: Ever wonder how to fold fabric for storage?
I fold mine like this too. Except I do the FQ;s a little different and
store those by color group in bins.

Ah, beautiful! Makes my heart go pitter-pat. Although those open
shelves next to a sunny window would not be my 1st choice.

Re: Ever wonder how to fold fabric for storage?
Howdy!

No, I never have wondered that; I just fold it, smooth it w/
both hands so I can fondle my fabric a few more times, then
lay it on a shelf, in a basket or tub, and do it all over again
next time.  ...  .
Jenn- have you been folding this way?  How far thru' your stash?

R/Sandy - I wonder what other things I haven't wondered, yet.. <g>

Re: Ever wonder how to fold fabric for storage?
No, I admit that I have a folding system that works well enough for me
and also gives me a good idea of whether the fabric was measured by
metre or by yard.  If I am storing a large piece that is going to be
sliced crosswise, I will iron as ususal (4way fold down the length)
then fold over a 6-8inch section at one end - continue folding this
section over and over down the length of the fabric (almost bolt-like
without the bolt) until I reach the other end.  I have found that
these methods produce enough stacks side by side on my shelves to give
me a colourful display ...... jennellh
