Yep, I did a grid, QuiltE. Then went a step more, printing the name of the block on it, and the week of PC when we did it. So the sequence of block order follows the original book the patterns. Of Course, I made notes in the PC book, as I did in the FWSQ book...had a contact on QB that wanted to 'buy' my FWSQ book...and I said a firm, 'No!"
Both books will stay with the respective quilt. They contain the stories for right now. Gave thought to printing out the page of each block I made and displayed on QB but the number is a bit over whelming combining the FWSQ one hundred and eleven books and the PC ninety blocks. Still thinking.
QNS, I'm doing the same with my Dear Jane book, it's like a little diary. I didn't do that with the PC book though and in my Sylvia Bridal Sampler book I only write the date I finish the block. But selling those books: NO, never!

My books have the dates I completed each block and then number of pieces .... nothing else though. And no way I would get rid of them. Aside from the stories in the books, I see them as an incredible resource to use when looking for different blocks to make.
A few years ago, I bought a perpetual calendar with a block every day. It's kind of fun to turn the page each day and see what the next block is. I've often thought it'd be fun to make each block in the calendar, doing it one block per day! Maybe some day? ... or perhaps that'd be some year?
