So I thought I had the backs pieced for both of my ottoman quilts as they'll now be referred to. Fortunately the one I'm wanting to work on now is ready to go. The problem is the Christmas quilt.

I have pieces cut, and somewhere I vaguely remember having a piece of scratch paper with measurements. I went to a quilt retreat with my mother and sister in-law January of last year. My mother-in-law was kind enough, as always to help me figure out measurements and how I wanted to do it. she jotted it all on a piece of paper. Now I have no idea what the plan was. I need to remeasure everything and try to figure out the puzzle. Also I need to look for that paper.

I need a better system for my UFO's and WIP's, this jotting down on whatever piece of paper I happened to have on hand obviously isn't working. There's just got to be a better system.

  1. How about getting a notebook specifically for quilting. It doesn't have to be fancy, just spiral bound our something. There are some regular cheap ones and there are some cute, CUTE ones out there too. Make sure to keep it with your quilting stuff and mark it with the word QUILTING on it or something. Then you could get some of those neat tabby-things that you can write on and label the pages for quick reference! I am getting excited about this for you! But you know how much I like office supplies. :P
