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!
