Do you keep a catalogue of some sort on what quilts you made?
It has been awhile since I quilted and just recently have gotten back into it - in a big way, I might add...SO as I look for fabrics and patterns from before, I am getting frustrated with not finding things I know I have. I decided to make a page for each quilt I make to include:
name of pattern
a photo of completed quilt
number and sizes of blocks
sample (including selvage info) of each fabric
what I did with it (donated, sold etc)
where I got the pattern from
receipt for materials if available - or estimated cost/value of quilt
I have placed them in clear sleeves and put them in a 3 ring binder...looks good so far...I am already impressed with myself! I also thought it would be good for tax purposes - each would be documented for donations, deductions etc.
The reason I started this was that I made a quilt and loved it, but it was earmarked for donation...I didn't want to lose the idea or patterns etc, so I decided to catalogue along with the remaining fabric to make myself one someday soon.
let me know how you do it...
