    If you were designing a MS Word document for a quilt binder, what information would you include?

    Quilt Name:
    Designed by:
    Date started:
    Date finished:
    Quilted by:
    Block names:
    Fabric: (collection or other name)
    Purchased at:
    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?

    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

    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.

    Good thinking....

    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.
