A Quilt Timeline

Thursday, April 17, 2014

I started quilting at the very beginning of January this year (New Year's Day in fact), but I'm already starting to worry about keeping track of my quilts. An article I read in Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine suggested keeping a "quilt log" in addition to labeling your quilts. I'm still trying to decide how I want to label my quilts (both future projects and retroactively), but I did manage to take a few photos yesterday evening to start my log. Additionally, I figured a quilt timeline would be a good first non-introductory post.
