So, I just started quilting approximately 3 years ago and I've used so many beautiful fabrics. I LOVE fabric! ...so much so that I can't seem to stop buying them up when I see some I like and I also can't seem to part with scraps that I think I may use in the future. The problem with this is that I have drawers full of unorganized fabric. I'm SO type A that it's driving me CRAZY just knowing these drawers exist, but at the same time I don't know HOW to tackle this issue... so I keep the scrap/extra fabric drawers closed so that I don't have to look at them. I felt motivated to remedy this problem yesterday, so I emptied out 1 drawer onto my workspace in the kitchen. In the end, I was so overwhelmed that I ended up just putting it all back into the drawer!
I posted a topic about this in The Modern Quilt Guild group on flickr.com online and I sincerely hope to get some suggestions as to how to approach this.

I hope that the suggestions come rolling in and that you all find them helpful as well! I'll post in the future about how I handle this issue and what the end result looks like. Thanks in advance for the help and advice!
