I went to a quilting class today and the instructor told us she makes one extra block than needed for every quilt she makes. Once she has enough she puts a quilt together, therefore having a diary of every quilt she ever made. I love this idea and plan to do the same and give them to the grandkids.

That's a wonderful idea. Wish I'd known it before I started quilting. For a while, I was making a quilt a month. I've even lost some of the pictures of them.

Great idea. Much better than just a picture of the quilt. :thumbup:

Yes, very good idea. I've made lots of quilts and didn't bother to keep track of them all. Now I couldn't possibly make a list, but I wish I had. It would be nice to know just for my own knowledge.

I try to take pictures of the quilts I make. I would have a hard time making an extra block a lot of times because I use scraps to make many of them. I'm cutting it pretty close to get the blocks I need for some of them. It is a good idea though
