Start Today -A Quilt Notebook!



Good Morning from the Tundra!

Like much of the country, Minnesota is in a deep freeze!   It is so cold, the Governor cancelled class for all schools today.  It is currently -42F!  I can’t think of anything better on a cold day than to pour myself a cup of tea, wrap myself in a quilt and stitch!

Today I would like to encourage everyone to start a Quilt Notebook.  The Quilt Notebook is for planning, documenting and evaluating each quilt and project. (I have used several notebooks over the years –and I really wish I had just ONE notebook that contained ALL of my quilts. )

The purpose of the Quilt Notebook is to serve as a catch-all for all the ideas, sizes, calculations,  materials, and reference information for each project.  After the project is complete, the Notebook will provide a history of your quilting project and your progress as a quilter.  In the next few weeks, we will be discussing just what to include in YOUR notebook.   For now, just find a notebook you love!

Things to consider when choosing your notebook:

Graph paper notebooks make sketching easier.

Loose leaf binders allow you to re-order your projects.

We are going to start by analyzing our last 3-5 quilts.  I have a series of questions for you to answer.  For now, just collect your last 3-5 quilt projects and find a notebook.

Until next time, Stay WARM! and send Warm Wishes this way!
