Quilting Journals-  To Do or Not To Do, That is the Question

I have been thinking a lot lately about how to keep track of all the quilts and projects I make.  There are a lot that get placed with different families and are no longer with me.

How in the world do I keep track of all of that?

I am kind of a journaler- this quilt blog is all about my journey and shows off some of the things I have been doing, but other than that…I have nothing!  I am quickly reminded when I see the quilt what it was for…or whom.  But, really it’s kind of like- out of sight, out of mind for me.

Is it this way with you?  Have you tried to keep track in some way or another what you have made in the past?

Do you mind if I pick your brain for a little bit and find out more about what you do?!

This next year, I have been kicking around the idea of putting together a little series and would love some input.  Without giving all the details away and not wanting to go full force into something that will not work, or that you aren’t interested in, I thought that asking you for your thoughts an ideas would be a good place to start.

First and foremost– Do you keep a project or quilting journal of any kind?  How do you like to keep it all together? 3-ring binder? pictures? labels on the project?

What kind of info do you keep track of when you do a journal?

Is 2 pages enough for one project?

Would you like something that can be printed and then you fill it out?

Are you interested in having different sizes?  Something for just the back of a photo, something for a binder?

What about a label for your project?  Something you can print and cut out on fabric to use on the back of your quilt or a printable label.

I appreciate you taking the time to let me know what you think and what works {or not} for you.  I am looking forward to reading through your answers and putting together the plans for next year.  You guys are the best!!!

Please share your answers and give me some suggestions in the comments.
