Keeping a Quilting Journal

How many times have you found a quilt that you made long ago and tried to remember what year you made it? Or you remember making a quilt for a baby shower, but can't remember who's baby you gave it to? Or maybe you've made a quilt that you absolutely loved, gave it to a very close friend that lives far away, and wished you could see it again? Or have you ever made a complicated quilt, only to forget exactly how you laid it out, can't remember the measurements of the block, or how it was pieced or exactly which fabric you used... and wished you could see the original again?

If this article has captured your interest, then perhaps you should consider keeping a quilting journal. You can get started by reading this article in its entirety at Free QuiltSheets® are available to get you started by sending an e-mail to Terry Crawford.

  1. I use a journal for my quilts. It has a picture of the quilt, who I made it for, the date atsrted and finished and the method used. It's nice to go back and look at the ones you've done and see how far you've progressed.

  2. Yes, it is! It also amazes me how I've forgotten some of them. If I didn't have a record, I fear I would never remember having made them! That's kind of scary.
