fabric folding

Hello everyone!  I've been doing a little fabric folding, thanks to my most recent book purchase, Rebecca Wat's aply named 'Fabric Folding.'  It was a great deal of fun and not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be.  I also indulged in fabric folding of a different sort as I finally managed to get my fabric stash organized.  Everything is neatly folded and stored on one shelf, which means I don't have nearly as much fabric as I had orginally thought!  :-)


I really liked the flowers shown on the book's cover and thought I'd give them a try.

My fabric choices, I used a 6 inch batik square for each flower.  Once folded they measured 3 inches with seam allowance.
This is the only photo I thought to take...this is after the first few folds are done, just before the fabric ends up looking like this...
All done, pretty impressive I think.

Another example of fabric folding, displayed at my LQS.

Here's my whole stash, looking very organized and well, not all that big really.  I really do think a shop hop is in order!


  1. It must feel great to have all your fabric organized!

    I love that fabric flower fold. It does look very difficult! I am going to have to get that book!

  2. Hey Mary, I was thinking we need to get out and do a quilt shop hop soon too. Lets plan!!

    And, those flowers are beautiful!



I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
