I don’t know about you, but my To-Quilt list is a mile long. I don’t have a lot of WIP’s, mostly because everything else in my house goes unfinished (dishes, laundry, repairs, whining- you get it) and I NEED a completed something every once in a while! But I’ve had a hard time lately remembering what projects I bought what fabric for, and so on. I needed an organized way of doing things, all in one convenient spot, and easy to follow.
There are actually several different planners and organizers out there, but none seemed to fit what I needed- so I made my own. Now I have a designated space for each project, and with one quick glance I can see what fabric goes to which pattern, and whether or not I have all the fabric required for a project before I dive into it. The priority line helps me out so I can really think about what is the best project to work on next. For me, I have several friends with babies coming soon that I need to get cranking on! It wasn’t until after I made this that I realized the Plus Quilt I had been working on was a low, low priority and I should have started with another. Now I know!
And since everyone feels great checking items off of a to-do list, I also included a process checklist for each main step. This is good for WIP’s, or if you have several items going at once and you see that HEY! 3 of my quilts need binding made, so I can do that in one sitting (er, maybe one sitting… if you sit up late at night like I do).
I also have placed to check off photographing, sharing, and delivering the quilt. Even if you don’t blog about your finishes, it is a good idea to take pictures for your own creative records. I wish my ancestors had records of their finishes! We are so lucky to live in the digital age, I tell ya.
I made the lists in three color options- Coral/Mint, Navy/Orange, and Black/White. I hope one or another suits your preference! You can download them using the following links:
