After being frustrated about not knowing how much I had of each fabric piece I had, I decided to measure it all one more time and this time to cut out a small square, stapling it to a 3 x 5 card, writing the length of the fabric I have on the card, along with the content (if known) and where it is stashed. I then placed the cards in a card box dividing the samples by amounts of fabric that I have (1 yard, 1 1/2 yrd, 2 yrds, etc.) This should help when I have a pattern that I need to match up with a certain amount of fabric.

I do the same and have sorted the cards by fabric type but now think that maybe I should sort the cards by coordinating fabrics by colors and seasons - that might make it easier to "shop the stash", something I definitely need to do ...

This is a great idea! I didn't have a card box, so I slid the cards into an unused photo album with slots that are just the right size. It makes it easy to flip through. Thanks for the initial idea!
