Taming Fabric and Stripping

This weekend I was working on a mystery quilt I am teaching at the Harbor Star in May. I like to teach mysteries because I get to torture my students! Ha

Anyway, I needed to use a lot of different fabrics for this one. So I needed a way to keep them in some kind of order and easy to get to as I pieced. Since I am so organized (NOT) I came up with this:

It's just an old fashioned drying rack. You can fold it up to store it. I use it all the time to hang fabric as I iron it, too.

You can see how easy the strips are to reach from my sewing machine.

Just remember how tall your dog is and hang your strips a little higher. Ask me how I know this...
