The Patchwork Planner and Journal:
Over 30 pages to help you plan and journal your quilting and sewing experience. You’ll find Journal pages, tracking your project progress sheets, exploring designs in quilt blocks and quilts, organizational printables, quick reference resource and more. It’s up to you what pages you’d like to print, and how many of each as well. Use a 3 ring binder or folder to keep them organizes- design your own book.
You’ll find the pages are editable! That means that you can type your info into the areas using your computer and print it out all filled out- and ready to put into the binder! OR you can print and hand write them….you decide!
This planner has been designed to be customized by you! You’ll be able to quickly view the whole planner in pdf format. Make note of the pages you’d like to start using and print off those pages. Punch holes in the side and place in chosen binder. Save the planner to your computer for future reference and printing. Again, you can choose which pages and how many of each you’d like to build your planner and journal with. You’ll find the planner only in black and white and fairly simple layout. This is so the information is easy to read and find. Feel free to add your own color and designs along the way.

Tracking and Progress:
As quilters we love to explore and share with others- which brings us to multiple orphan projects, swaps we are involved in, quilt alongs, and even projects from our quilt groups.
These pages will help you keep all that information in one spot. You can track your progress of steps, fabrics you have chosen, where to go for the next step, dates, timeline, and of course spots for additional notes as well to track any changes up updates made.
Making progress on your projects doesn’t happen very easily if you aren’t a little bit organized in your sewing space. Here you’ll find swatch cards – both for your home and for taking to the shop, fabric wraps for keeping small bundles marked and folded nice and quilt labels.
Included as well are spines for binders – a few different sizes, so you can mark your Patchwork Planner and Journal for quick access.
