Tip: Remove Fabric From Stash With Ease
This reader-submitted tip was originally featured in Quick Stuff to Quilt (Fall 2014).
My fabric stash is stored on shelves with one folded fabric piece on top of another. To make it easy to remove one piece without upsetting the rest, I insert a 12-inch by 18-inch sheet of smooth, stiff quilter’s plastic under the fabric I’m removing and another sheet above it. The smooth plastic slides in easily, and I can slip out the selected fabric without upsetting anything else. When I return fabric to the stack, I use this process in reverse. It works beautifully.
