I added a board on top of these high baskets and this is holding the applique I been working on. Lately it been more not than am but now it's very visible.
Here I 've used a file organizer and put blocks or leaders and enders bagged and ready to work on when I want. The boxes hold less urgent projects.
The basket is holding sets of blocks made in swaps or just something I wanted to do. Someday, they will be in a quilt. It's full too.
One problem I found with the shelf that held my boxes of squares and bricks was that I couldn't get to them.. Too easy to put stuff in front of the boxes. So I used the far space to put yardage and rearranged the boxes that held the small squares, only placing containers I could see through in front.
On the top shelves I've boxed the UFO's I wanted to do sooner, rather than later. I really thought about each one really hard before boxing and labeling.
Now it's really working better for me. Today I spent the afternoon refolding a large drawer of children fabrics, which are mostly brights. I arranged them by colors and put the yardage on top. I should take a picture, it looks great and I have such a sense of accomplishment. I want to continue until I have all wire drawers done.
