If you were designing a MS Word document for a quilt binder, what information would you include?
Fabric: (collection or other name)
List the fabrics, yardage and cost and a place to put swatches
Could also add shows it's in, if any. Who it is made for or given to.
What else would you include?
reason for making it -
was it for a gift? a show? an order? just because?
what worked well in the process
what didn't work so well
oh - the most important part - tips on how to make again.
i keep a list of the challenges/tips i encountered making a certain quilt that way when i go back to that technique i'm ahead of the game.
nothing to do with the quilt, but it might be interesting to look back on -
major events that took place while making that particular quilt -
examples: birth of a child, death of someone, 9/11, acquiring a kitten, getting married/divorced, etc
No way would I put the start date and finish date. THen everyone who ever saw it would know I am SLOW AS SNAILS!!!
When you complete your MS Doc Quilt Information Sheet would
you share it with all of us. I think this is a great idea and would like
to make one also.
was it a quilt that you would make again - and why or why not
You all have such great ideas. I, too, wouldn't put the start and finish date. I don't want anyone to know how slow I am.
what kind of batting and thread you used
I'm not sure how you would account for stash fabrics that have been around for ages, or donations/gifts, or scraps.
If pattern is from a book, the name of the book, copyright date, name of the block/quilt, and page number.
Although I think most of us may start out from a pattern, but add our own touches/adaptations to it.
