Hooray for Project Quilting!

Project Quilting Season 6, Challenge 1, I couldn’t resist!!! Yes, I have a huge project that I need to finish by a deadline, but that doesn’t stop me from dropping everything when I see a Project Quilting challenge posted!

So the Challenge theme = Trees. Easy peasy, I have tons of tree ideas, I love trees, trees are probably one of my favorite subjects to make art about…ever!  Trees, trees, trees!!! In Season 2, one of my all-time favorite pieces was Buttonwillow, with some 3D leaves that turned out really great.  So that was the idea I started with, I just wanted to make some more leaves.

Project Journal

This morning I sat down at my computer to print a couple photos of the projects I had finished recently to put into my Project Journal. Little did I know that it would be a full day of work, my book was sooooo far behind! I’m still not “caught up,” but I do have a lot more complete scrapbook of the projects I’ve made in the last few years. Want to peek?

I hate it when I realize that I have forgotten to take photos of something I’ve given as a gift. I missed almost everything from this Christmas. I think I may have to ask a few people to take photos of their gifts from me! Lisa did that when I came to her house the other day using the purse she gave me!!

Do you have a Project Journal or Quilt Journal? I think most of my quilting friends do. It’s good to have a record of what you’ve done, especially those that you give away. I love leafing through mine and remembering those projects I enjoyed so much!

I made my blank journal pages into a pdf… if you’d like to use them, you are welcome to! Download here.
