For Posterity

Do you keep track of the quilts you make?  Do you take pictures?  Scrapbook about them?  Make lists for insurance purposes?  Label each quilt? 

All of those are good ideas, but if you are like me, it is much more fun to actually be working on a quilt, than spending time writing about them.  I try to do it all, but sometimes I put it off  much too long.

TO THE RESCUE............

A few days ago I received a copy of a wonderful new software program called "Quilt Album"
It is an easy software that helps you  keep a quilting journal- a database that keeps all the important information about your quilts in one place and makes it simple to print it out for different purposes.

You have spent many hours creating your quilts – this program creates a lasting and complete record of your work - for yourself or for your descendants!

For every quilt you can store as many pictures and information as you want. And you can easily print out those photos and information – as pages that you can bind into a physical album.

Since I have only had the program for a couple of days, here is just a quick example of what an album page might look like for the quilt I finished yesterday.

I will  share more examples with you as I create them over the next few weeks. But I can tell just from a short time testing it out that it is something that will save me a ton of time making labels, and documenting  my quilts.  I have kept picture journals from the very beginning, but confess as time has gone on, I've become more and more lax in documenting all the facts about each quilt.  With Quilt Album I can do that in a jiffy!  And I can define a template that will include all the things I want to remember to include. 

For now I hope you will take a few moments to watch this video  and start imaging how Quilt Album can make your life easier.

Hi Mary!

Funny, I noticed the new button in your side bar last night, so had a sneak peak and watched the video - I was very impressed and considered purchasing the download immediately..... so pleased I waited as now I can get the $5 discount!

It's really cold here at present, can hardly get my fingers to do any stitching!
