I was on a recent visit out to our sister offices in Colorado and was taken on a tour be a fellow editor. Of course, the first place we stopped was the sewing room. And there I saw a beautiful thing: hundreds of fat quarters in every rainbow hue arranged in by color in tidy wire basket storage.
Well-organized fat quarters really are a beautiful thing.
Fat quarters are certainly one of the biggest storage challenges of the sewing room. Even though they fold up neatly, and the fat quarter bundles with their tonal spectrums are delightful to look at, they are narrow enough that they can be awkward to stack.
I have an obsession with sewing storage and when I see a brilliant solution, I am enthralled. Here the fat quarters were turned on their sides and slipped perfectly into the wire drawers, with yellows fading to creams and melting into peaches and turning to orange and red and so on.
Such a feast for the eyes! It made me happy to just look at it, so of course I had to share with you. I have seen some lovely solutions for fat quarter storage, but this was one of the best, both for its visually pleasing layout and the sheer quantity of fat quarters that could be tucked neatly away
Once fat quarters are organized so spectacularly you'll definitely want to take on some new projects. Check out our fabulous Patchwork Collection Kit in the Sew Daily Shop!
