Smile Quilt Journal

I use to have a Journal paper you can fill out about the quilt you are making. who you are making if for and all kinds of info.

Does anyone know where I can find it. I googled it but no luck.
thank you

Years and years ago I bought a package of manila envelopes that fit into a 3-ring binder. I created my own 'form' on the computer to include all the information I wanted to keep on the quilt; I just printed out and pasted that sheet onto the envelope along with a photo of the finished quilt. Inside it I placed scraps of the fabrics from the quilt so that I could make small repairs in the future and also so that I could remember the true colors in the quilt.

Seems like I remember AQS having some forms like these among their book offerings years ago, too.

Happy to help!
Of course, it's been many years since I've kept that journal faithfully, LOL! Nonetheless it is interesting to go back and look at the fabrics.

And I bet we would all be amazed if we kept track of the $$ we spent on each quilt. wowsers. Maybe it's best not to know this much.

Jan, that is a wonderful suggestion....you are just too clever. As a new quilter this is a wonderful thing to start so as my skills "improve" I have a record of the poor individuals who endured my beginnings. LOL

I have a journal called "A Quilters Journal" by Debbie Field. It was published by Landauer Corporation. It is very nice and there are places on each page for lots of information and pages for swatches. In the back are small plastic bags to keep things in. I found a phone number for Landauer Books--1-800/557-2144. By the way, my journal has 3 photos of a quilt and bumper pad that I made for my DGS who is 7 years old now, and nothing else in it. I forgot I had it. Pretty bad, huh. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

I just use an acid-free photo album. Put in a picture, description, fabric scraps, & anything else I though pertinent.
