Getting organized ! ! !

 I am trying to organize my fabrics. I pulled out a bin of scraps (I have 5 more bins ) and I started cutting.  I used my Accuquilt Go cutter and cut out about 150 tumbling blocks, then some 2  1/2 squares and some small half square bits, then I got out my rotary cutter and cut out some 6 inch,
 5 inch, 4 inch and 2 inch blocks. 

 I took the scraps from all this cutting and used every piece that was at least 1 inch square and  'made' a piece of fabric that is about 26"x20".  I don't know how I will use my 'made' fabric but I plan to add to it once I tackle another bin of scraps.

I am also trying to get my fabric stash in order!  I read about using comic book backer boards so I got some.  My shelf went from this...........


neat huh?

I had only ordered one box of the backer boards so I ran out.  I ordered two more boxes and will attempt to get it all in order when I get them! 
I took all of my fat quarters and folded them and have them in a couple of clear plastic bins.  I will show a pic of that next time I post about getting organized!
