Plan, dream, create: an inspiring journal for the New Year (+ giveaway!)

A New Year means a fresh start—and today, we’re excited to introduce you to a tool that will give you a fresh outlook on your creative life. Welcome to organization for your quilting life, and inspiration for your quilting soul!

A Quilter's Journal

Photographed at quilting star Lisa Bongean’s gorgeous lakeside home, A Quilter’s Journal is an inspiring week-by-week journal packed with stunning photos of quilts and more to enjoy.

From A Quilter's JournalThroughout the pages of this beautiful journal, you’ll find fun prompts to answer all year long—they’ll get your creative juices flowing. Create plans for quilting adventures, keep track of your projects, document gift and charity quilts—or simply keep a memory journal for future generations of quilters in your family to cherish. And at a petite 5¼" x 8⅜", it’s the perfect size to carry in your bag while you’re on the go.

Use the journal as a to-do list, as your sketchbook, as your diary, or all of the above! We’re excited to welcome Lisa Bongean as a guest writer today to tell us more about the journal that every quilter is going to want to own.


Lisa BongeanI have always wanted a place to keep track of the daily progression of my quiltmaking. A place I retire to at the end of the day to write a little about what I’ve accomplished. But the problem has been that notebooks are boring, calendars aren’t quite right—and who can commit to being consistent? Not me.

So when I pitched my idea to Martingale about a journal for quilters in a weekly, open-ended format—no dates, no years—I decided I could certainly commit to that. And if I choose to write daily, that can be done as well!

A Quilter’s Journal has a beautiful matte finish for smear-free writing and a lay-flat binding that won’t break when writing week after week. The Martingale team thought of everything to encourage us to keep the journal active.

From A Quilter's Journal

The photography throughout is filled with amazing inspiration. There are lots of photos of quilts, both new and from my collection of antiques, along with sewing items and notions, also new and antique. Although there are no patterns in the journal, you can find patterns and/or kits for some of the featured quilts, which can be ordered on my Primitive Gatherings website. You’ll find a link in the journal to a list of available patterns.

We also wanted a place in the journal for lists: bucket-list items, classes we wanted to take, teachers we wanted to meet, shows and retreats we wanted to attend. I also wanted a place just to write down my thoughts about quilting and why I am inspired to do it every day… and there’s space to do all of these things in A Quilter’s Journal.

Inside A Quilter's Journal


We as quilters are a rare breed. We put lots of love into the things we make. Some things we make take years. Some projects take months, and some only days, but still, time is our most precious asset. When you take the time you have and pour it into a quilt, it’s the perfect way to show someone how much you love and care about them.

My quote at the end of the journal says it all to me:

I think you’ll enjoy this journal and the pleasure it will bring you when you look back on it over the years.


A Quilter's JournalThanks for sharing your journal with us, Lisa—we can’t wait to get to planning, doing, and dreaming.

    —Margaret on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above, plus things I accomplished outside of quilting. Makes me feel that the day was notwasted away. Even if it’s just reading a book, or paying the bills. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Rita S on January 10, 2018
  • If I had a copy of this journal, I’d use it for ALL my creative pursuits — quilting, heirloom sewing, cross stitch, knitting. It would be a great way to keep track and serve as a legacy to our daughter and granddaughters.

    —Katherine Morvay on January 10, 2018
  • What a great way to keep track of your projects and plan for more! I love spending time in my sewing room. I often find a project I had forgotten and I’m inspired again. To have it in a diary format would be a great tool!

    —Lynn on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above! Wonderful, but so many more ideas for this beautiful journal! Thank you, Susan

    —Susan Spiers on January 10, 2018
  • I would keep track of my progress on certain projects. It would perhaps help me to keep on a project and maybe if I see how much, or how little, I’m working on something, I would wonder why and get things done.

    —Joanne O'Neal on January 10, 2018
  • I’ve never used a journal before. I did try once about 3 years ago, but never got past the first page!! I’d love to try again, now that I have a little more experience! Thanks so much for the inspiration and the chance to win 🙂

    —Debby on January 10, 2018

    Linda Pawlak on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above and more! I’d put pictures of completed projects in the journal too.

    —Lee Ann Lenfest on January 10, 2018
  • I try to sew every day but sometimes life gets in the way! I would love to keep track of new ideas for quilts but also other ones that actually get made. There are many of the first category and not nearly as many of the second!

    —Ellie on January 10, 2018
  • I will fill it with all the ideas that float through my mind, if I can get them on paper,,,,,,,, I can get them on fabric.
    Thanks for the chance to win this marvelous book

    —Julie A Craven on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above – after all, that is what a journal is for. To record all that is happening in your life. It looks beautiful. Would make a terrific gift for all the quilters in your life.

    —Linda Ahn on January 10, 2018
  • I would choose all the above.

    —Christa Bengtsson on January 10, 2018
  • This would be a great way to keep track of all the projects I want to make and the quilts I’ve finished!

    —Verna on January 10, 2018
  • Absolutely all of the above! I keep a photo record of my quilts,but other lists are kind of haphazard on slips of paper and tend to get lost.

    —Shirley Ratliff on January 10, 2018
  • A wonderful organized way to keep track of one’s "progress!"

    —Marianne on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above! This is a quilter’s dream journal!

    —Siu Wai Berthelot on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above. It is so beautiful, so precious and tangible, the possibility of recording my thoughts, hopes and plans is something I’ve never done before, it’s all stored upstairs. It would certainly be a marker for those that come after me to see what made Nana dance.

    —DebW on January 10, 2018
  • A placebo keep track of projects and future project ideas instead of scraps of paper.

    —Joyce B on January 10, 2018
  • I have tried to remember all the quilts I made. and a journal would be great. I would love to win the giveaway.

    —Patricia D. Roberts on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above. What a great idea ~ love the fact there aren’t dates/deadlines!

    —Diana DeWitt on January 10, 2018
  • I have made so many quilts and I don’t even remember all of them. I wish I would have kept a record of my early quilts at least. I would love to have a picture with the person that received a quilt.

    When I make a quilt now, I print out the instructions and put them in a notebook with notes about any changes I made. That way if anything happens to me, my daughters can finish my unfinished projects. It also helps if anyone wants the instructions on how I make a quilt. You think you will remember the ways you change the pattern, but you don’t. I almost never make a quilt right by the pattern. When I teach a young girl to quilt, I do tell them to label their quilts and keep pictures of the ones they have made. A story to go along with the quilt makes it more valuable.

    —Kay Menefee on January 10, 2018
  • ALL of the above!

    —Amy Cofer on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above! That’s how we create and get inspired

    —Leslie on January 10, 2018
  • If I had a journal, I’d add photographs of my completed quilts!

    —Mary M. on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above and drawings of quilts I’d love to make. Great give away!

    —Vickie Keith on January 10, 2018
  • Wonderful …It’s a dream book as well ..possible quilts …. Interesting road trips..so many possibilities .I’m in 😀

    —Doris on January 10, 2018
  • Celebrations
    Accomplishments

    —Robyn Spencer Beck on January 10, 2018
  • The journal is a great idea. I would fill it with current and future projects. If I decide to clear out old magazines I look through them and cut out things I love, whether it be a quilt or a decorating idea. This would be the perfect place to keep them.

    —Carol W. on January 10, 2018
  • If I had A Quilter’s Journal I would fill it with all of the ideas I scribble down on scrap paper. I would add fabric swatches that are sometimes the inspiration or pictures cut out of magazines. I would also add link addresses that so often are forgotten it not noted.

    —Deena Drevs on January 10, 2018
  • All the quilts I can remember making (nearly all given away). All the quilts I would love to make. A list of my UFO’s then maybe I would finish them.

    —Anna Mercer on January 10, 2018
  • If I were to win the quilter’s journal, I would record my plans for future quilts. This would help me to be cohesive between quilt patterns, fabric choices, etc.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win this journal.

    —JENNIE STORCH on January 10, 2018
  • I am always jotting down new block arrangements, quick patterns from tutorials, clipping sample colors for a new quilt…on and on. These are usually written on the backs of envelopes or handy scraps of paper, no organization at all. Needless to say I have a problem finding these project ideas! This new journal sounds like a great way to keep all your ideas and samples organized.

    —Linda Thomas on January 10, 2018
  • I’d keep a quilting diary and challenge myself to do something quilty each day of the year.

    —Deb Smith on January 10, 2018
  • Definitely “all of the above” and any tidbits concerning my sewing groups!

    —Paula R in GA on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above! concentrating on the future or supposed to be in progress and adding notes and photos for completed projects. thanks!

    —Vicki on January 10, 2018
  • I would love to keep pictures of the quilts that I have made. Also pictures of the quilts that I would like to make. Pictures of my great grandmothers quilts.

    —Melissa McCloud on January 10, 2018
  • If I had ‘A Quilter’s Journal’, I’d fill it with ideas for future projects!

    —Linda B on January 10, 2018
  • I would fill it with ideas and samples of fabric I have for quilts I want to make when I retire later this year. Also ideas of of other sewing ideas of things to make that I can sell to help supplement my pension.

    —Janette Anderson on January 10, 2018
  • Wow! How nice. If I had this journal I would like to use it for everything. What I’m working on. What I want to work on. Ideas for projects so I’d remember them. Notes on fabrics and quilt shops. It would be a handy tool to have. Nicely done.

    —Karen on January 10, 2018
  • I’d use it to jot down all my thoughts about quilts I want to make….color ways I want to use, who I want to make it for, what fabric is yet needed (ha! I have enough to open my own store), etc.

    —Janice on January 10, 2018
  • I am always jotting down ideas on pieces of paper and saving pictures out of magazines and catalogs. This would be a perfect place to save all my inspirations!

    —Kim Zeigler on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above and more! I wish I had kept a journal of my quilting from my first quilt to today’s project. I need this!

    —Nancy on January 10, 2018
  • I’d love to use this as photo journal for completed projects!

    —Linda Macullo on January 10, 2018
  • I would choose ‘all of the above’.

    —Cathy on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above!

    —Christine E. on January 10, 2018
  • A beautiful journal may just give me some incentive to organize future project ideas. It would also be wonderful for documenting quilts I have already made.

    —Marlene on January 10, 2018
  • I’m not a person that is inclined to express myself on paper but this does look hopeful. Since retiring from my real job, I am now teaching sewing classes at our local Bernina Sewing Center and this journal would be absolutely perfect for jotting down notes on all of the projects that I am working on for my classes – my notes would actually all be in one place. Although I am basically a quilter, these classes that I’m teaching have greatly expanded my forgotten knowledge and am having great fun with teaching, especially the kids.
    I love it! It is very pretty to look at as well as serving a great purpose.

    —Eilene Hengen on January 10, 2018
  • I would love a place to record all my plans and where I found the idea, so I have a place to go back and remember. Plus a journal of what I am doing, why and how much I am enjoying it would be a treasure to pass on to my granddaughter who loves quilting, too.

    —Kris on January 10, 2018
  • I would love a journaltp keep track of the projects I am making as well as those I have completed. Thanks for the chance.

    Sheila on January 10, 2018
  • I would use it for project ideas, sketches, drawings – all the things that end up on scraps of paper that I lose!

    —Kathy on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above, it would be fun to reflect and also to share with my children after I have gone to quilting heaven….

    —Carolyn Van Petten on January 10, 2018
  • If I had a quilters journal I would keep better track of my projects with greater detail as opposed to individual folders they way I do it now. I wouldn’t loose parts of projects by taking them out of the folder and reusing for another project, but then forget to put them back.

    —Ana-Maria Kramer on January 10, 2018
  • If I had A Quilter’s Journal, I’d fill it with:

    Ideas for future projects
    Plans for quilty travels
    Prose about my patchwork
    All of the above!

    —Kerry Coburn on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above. I have given away most of my work and was very bad at record-keeping! I think this is just what I need to stay more organized.

    —Kathy R on January 10, 2018
  • i really need this journal, i grab whatever is handy to write on and then when i need it i can’t remember where i wrote it down.

    —carolyn montgomery on January 10, 2018
  • If I had a Quilter’s journal I would enter ideas of what I would like to try to sew each month. I would also keep a picture of a project that I made, note the fabric manufacturer and keep samples with the image.

    —Gloria on January 10, 2018
  • I would jot down ideas for future projects, as well as a list of my UFOs- maybe that would help me finish them!

    —Dottie Macomber on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above….as well as notes about my UFOs! I have a tendency to draw a block I spotted in a magazine on a piece of paper and then I forget where I put the drawing! This new book would help me keep these ideas & patterns organized!

    —Marcia Burt on January 10, 2018
  • I would have to say "all of the above" for my use of this journal. It looks wonderful and very useful! Thank you!

    —Mary Kastner on January 10, 2018
  • Good Morning,
    The A Quilter’s Journal looks like a fabulous tool! I would like to keep track of all the planned projects – the ones that I see fabric and pick it up, and then later wonder what I bought that for?! Of course it would also be great for current and past projects. I think I’ve talked myself into ‘needing’ this even if I don’t win a copy! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Roseanne on January 10, 2018
  • I take a lot of pictures of quilts I see that I would like to make. It would be a good place for taping my pictures to and writing notes on fabric needed with the book instructions and who made it.

    —Angie on January 10, 2018
  • This book is a perfect idea—I would have it with me shopping to find t
    hose perfect colours of fabric—special sewing needles–thread colours It would go from sewing room to the store all the time

    Bea Donald on January 10, 2018
  • i’d put all the fabric that I bought and what pattern I wanted to use for that fabric before storing it away

    —Kathy Luehrs on January 10, 2018
  • Everything would go in this beautiful book!! Thank you so much for offering it as a prize!

    —Denise on January 10, 2018
  • I live in the UK,how can I get this book ( the quilters journal) please

    —Sylvia on January 10, 2018
  • I think I’d use the Journal most for plans for future projects, which would include projects-in-process. I think having an inspiring spot to write down my list of UFO’s would encourage me to stop creating new tops for long enough to make the current tops into useful quilts! I also like Linda’s idea of jotting down new block arrangements all in one place. The Journal looks lovely.

    —Carol Johnson on January 10, 2018
  • I would fill my journal with plans for future quilts, progress on UFO’s. I would add fabric selections for future quilts and pictures of completed quilts and smaller projects!

    —Lois on January 10, 2018
  • If I had a Quilters Journal, I would keep track of projects I want to do and maybe I could find them and get them done.

    —Karan on January 10, 2018
  • I cannot sew everyday, but really wish I could. I’m teaching myself to quilt and this journal would be a great place to jot down ideas and pictures of what I do accomplish so I can see my progress. The photos in this journal are such an inspiration.

    —Doris on January 10, 2018
  • Ideas and quilt travel plans most definitely, two of my favorite things!

    —Kathy on January 10, 2018
  • Ideas for future projects!

    —Ashley on January 10, 2018
  • I would use it for all of the above

    —kathy on January 10, 2018
  • I would document the projects I have done, write down ideas for projects I want to make and the websites and blogs that inspire me. I would also add pictures of things I would like to make.

    —Cindy Berry on January 10, 2018
  • I would fill a journal with future projects. Would work so much better than my internal "magic slate".

    —Cindy French on January 10, 2018
  • Love this, it would be wonderful to leave to my grandchildren! Beautiful journal

    —glenda mathews on January 10, 2018
  • If I had a quilter’s journal I would record each quilt that I make as to date, pattern, color scheme, etc. I would probably use it to jot down ideas for future quilts as well.

    —Kathy Kranenburg on January 10, 2018
  • I don’t have a Quilter’s Journal but it’s a good idea to do 😉 so thanks for the giveaway

    —Anne on January 10, 2018
  • If I win the quilters journal, I would record my plans for future quilts, and also record my unfinished quilts with swatches. I think this quilt journal would be great because it would help me get my unfinished quilts done, would hold me accountable! It is a great giveaway! Love It

    —Diane Pretak on January 10, 2018
  • I’d use it to make notes on ideas for patterns, quilting, and items I simply admire.

    —Janet Alvestad on January 10, 2018
  • I would fill it with all of my quilting adventures, from planning to gifting(the best part)

    —Joyce Dark on January 10, 2018
  • I keep a daily journal and it would be fun to have one entirely devoted to my quilting journey. I started quilting five years ago, and I’ve loved every minute of it since! So ‘all of the above’ would go into that journal.

    —Susan Stanton on January 10, 2018
  • Pretty much all of the above! Looks like a beautiful way to keep up with my quilting life!

    —Ginger Marshall on January 10, 2018
  • Wonderful idea! All of the above, for sure!

    —RoseMarie Christie on January 10, 2018
  • LOVE your giveaway. Thanks

    Mary Arntson on January 10, 2018
  • I would try to remember and write down all the quilts that I have made and given away over the years as well as the ones that I have finished and are waiting for a new home. A great organizer for someone who is not organized. Thank you for a great giveaway.

    —JUDYD on January 10, 2018
  • Mostly I’d fill it with ideas for future projects and plans for quilty travels.

    —Laura on January 10, 2018
  • I would fill my journal with quilt plans for the future and possibly a bit of prose. I don’t travel, but I might add something about travels I would like to make. This looks like a wonderful journal!!

    —Lin H on January 10, 2018
  • I would write every little thing I did quilt-wise to see my progress and be encouraged.

    —Melinda on January 10, 2018
  • I would use it for keeping track of quilt design ideas as well as a way to keep track of my UFO’s. Knowing how much is done on a quilt-in–progress, and what the next step is, would help me to more quilt completitions.

    —Elizabeth McDonald on January 10, 2018
  • What a lovely idea. I try do something with my quilting everyday even if it’s just straightening the sewing closet so I can find something. Or reading a magazine. You forget that quilts take time and you sometimes feel you aren’t making progress. Jotting down your progress or your thoughts would settle your mind at the end of the day.

    —Barb W on January 10, 2018
  • I would use this journal for lots of things! To plan new projects, record needs for on-going projects, to keep track of quilts I have made and given away, the options are endless!

    —Pat Klem on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above and way more! I would use it to plan, dream, and document. Would love to win one.

    —Glenda McCarthy on January 10, 2018
  • If I had a journal, I would document the quilts I’ve made for QOV. I could include the picture of the Veteran who received it. I love making the quilts and it’s very emotional to provide a thank you to someone for their service to our country.

    —eve elliott on January 10, 2018
  • I would use it to record quilts I have made, as well as UFO’s to help move me to finishing them!

    —Ann L. on January 10, 2018
  • Mostly try to write down something every day about quilting and sewing, to help finish my current projects(many) and record new ideas.

    —Tamara Isaacs-Smith on January 10, 2018
  • I would do all of the above. I’ve been looking for something like this!

    —Judy Bowers on January 10, 2018
  • Quilting wishes and dreams I’d like to fulfill and have achieved. That would be incredibly blissful. Big Sigh!

    —Darlene J on January 10, 2018
  • As a new quilter, this looks to be a great inspiration.

    —Heather C on January 10, 2018
  • My journal would be filled with ideas for future projects. I have so many ideas, so little time.

    —Suzanne on January 10, 2018
  • Fill it with future projects. Can’t afford to travel, and I’m not prosy, but do I ever have future projects flying around in my head.

    —Joy Dickson on January 10, 2018
  • I am trying to be more organized and this would give me a place to keep track of quilts in progress/UFO’s and quilts that I want to make. I like the idea of keeping small fabric swatches in one place for fabric colour collections that i have started and may want to add to or find patterns for. Much nicer than my usual ziplock bags!

    —Diane Falconer on January 10, 2018
  • This would be a awesome journal to keep my thoughts about my quilting and my life’s journey through the year. Great idea! 👍

    Jeannine Snyder on January 10, 2018
  • This would be the perfect place to plan future projects and not lose the notes!

    —Cheryl on January 10, 2018
  • Ideas for future projects! Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Lisa on January 10, 2018
  • I would do all of the above. I really need this to get myself organized.

    —peg on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above.

    —Linda on January 10, 2018
  • What a great place for recording quilts…their patterns, their dimensions, and the recipient! How many times do I ask myself, "Now, what size was John’s quilt? That’s the size I want for this one." All of the information would be in the same place. This journal with its pictures, inspiration, and organization would be perfect.

    —Virginia in AK on January 10, 2018
  • Wow! Beautiful book to inspire me to get my quilting projects organized for the new year.

    —Gloria on January 10, 2018
  • I write/sketch my ideas in a spiral bound sketchbook with colored pencils. I also record what I learned from the quilts I make as I try a new pattern or color scheme, new technique or maybe a new product such as thread/batting. It’s my personal history of quilt making.

    It would be nice to have a quilt journal made specifically for this purpose!

    —Dawn Spero on January 10, 2018
  • If I had a journal I would do a better job of keeping track of all my projects, quilting, planning, cutting, sewing, and purchasing. It would also be a place for me to think, dream, and chat with myself about what I’m doing and what I should be doing. I would hope it would make me a better organized person.

    —Jan on January 10, 2018
  • I would use it to plan future projects and keep track of works in progress.

    —Janna on January 10, 2018

    —Eileen on January 10, 2018
  • Oh, definitely all of the above. I love the open-ended format of this journal. It’s the first one I’ve seen that I’m sure I would actually use, and the pictures are so inspiring.

    Victoria on January 10, 2018
  • I write in mine each day I sew so I can track progress, check back for a start date, and I highlight the name of the quilt when it’s finished. I don’t think anyone will ever care to read it.

    —Karen on January 10, 2018
  • I would use it to keep track of my old and new projects. Where I am at in each one, using it to help me complete my WIPs and get ready for new projects.

    —Caryn on January 10, 2018
  • I have so many ideas for future projects, I would definitely be writing them down in the Journal so I could find them again.

    —Carol M on January 10, 2018

    —Nicole on January 10, 2018
  • If I had a quilters journal I would use it instead of the cheap spiral notebook that I just started using.

  • All of the above, for sure, wherever I be, it would be with me. Thanks!

    —Janey on January 10, 2018

    —Vickie on January 10, 2018

    —kraftykc on January 10, 2018
  • Everything quilting related

    —Amy Holt on January 10, 2018
  • If I have a quilters journal, I would fill it with quilty ideas and track my WIPs.

    —Lynn on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above! I would also keep track of purchases I make while at quilt shows, and what project they would be used for.

    —Sidney Mcwhorter on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above! This looks like it would help me organize my thoughts and get them turned into action!

    —Linda Wallen on January 10, 2018
  • Congrats on your new book.
    This looks like a great idea

    If I had A Quilter’s Journal, I’d fill it with:
    Ideas for future projects
    Plans for quilty travels
    Prose about my patchwork
    And probably more!!!

    —Lori Smanski on January 10, 2018
  • I would fill it will all the above and more. Thanks.

    —Karen on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above.

    —Hildy on January 10, 2018
  • I would have to say "All of the Above" also. I like that the journal is a blank canvas for everything quilty! Thank you.

    —Rose on January 10, 2018
  • I have a simple notebook (not nearly as nice as this journal) where I list all the information about the quilts I make – size, fabrics used, who it’s for, why it was made, etc. I include a copy with the quits I give away – it’s nice for the recipient to have a background into the quilt!

    —Sandi S on January 10, 2018
  • I’d do all of the above plus photos and swatches to remember with. What a wonderful quilter’s journal, Lisa! I’ve never really kept one, just photos of quilts past. Thanks for all your wonderful inspiration!

    —TexasStrong on January 10, 2018
  • I would fill it with a) current work-in-progress projects b)future projects. This journal would allow me puts in all the details of my quilts, includes fabrics I use, where the patterns from and etc. I would love to have one of this journal.

  • I would definitely put in inspiration on future quilt projects and also any current ones! Thanks

    —Tabitha Keener on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above. I make notes and take pictures of all my projects as I go along, I could post fabric swatch pictures, and I would take along on my trips to make notes about quilt shops I have been in and the fabric I bought. I pull out a piece of fabric a year later and cannot remember where I got it. This journal will help with that. I would also write down my creative ideas since I like to design my own applique and piece combined quilts. A few in the works right now.

    —Barbara Theriault on January 10, 2018
  • Future projects and finished projects.

    —AS on January 10, 2018
  • I love to write and am always making notes of one thing or another. I make sure I take photos of every project I make. I have journals from about 30 years back, a great way to document my quilts. A perfect book to win!

    —Janet Fletcher on January 10, 2018
  • Maybe it could be a good thing to keep me organized and a place to have a quilting history for me.

    —Tammy on January 10, 2018
  • I sew every day and I have many projects going on at one time while my brain is dreaming and planning future projects. In addition to recording ongoing and future projects this book would also be a written reminder to me of what I have already accomplished plus it is a written record of the quilts I have made for those who inherit my quilts. I would love to own this journal.

    Myra Katz on January 10, 2018
  • I’d fill it with ideas and inspiration for future projects. Sketches and photos and inspirational quotes! Anything inspiring!

    —Sandi on January 10, 2018

    —Jill Hicks on January 10, 2018

    —Susan on January 10, 2018
  • I would do all of the above. Or more realistically, maybe I would be more organized if I had such a lovely journal to inspire me.

    —Karen Addleman on January 10, 2018

    —Deborah Johnson on January 10, 2018
  • I think I would fill it with inspirational posts that will motivate me to quilt my wips!

    —Kristie Michalowski on January 10, 2018

    —Robyn Brown on January 10, 2018

  • I’d keep track of current projects and if there was any room left I’d add in future project ideas!

    —Janis T on January 10, 2018
  • I’d try for all of the above. I’m not a great journaler; usually use scraps of paper that seem to get lost and only found later. Perhaps having a place to put things, whether the plans come to fruition or not, would be helpful. It would let me look back and see what I’ve accomplished.

    —Rochelle Summers on January 10, 2018
  • At this point in my life, I’d probably journal all the quirky things my young kids do and say, and look at the photos to dream of future days when I can maintain a beautiful home.

    —Esther G on January 10, 2018
  • If I had a quilter’s journal I’d fill it full of ideas for projects, pitfalls I’ve troubleshooted out so I can refer to them as needed, resources for supplies, and inspirational photos, or phrases, etc.

    —Cheryl on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above! And I would love looking at the photos of the gorgeous quilts.

    —Susan K. on January 10, 2018
  • I would do all three. I just started an art journaling class and this would be perfect!

    —Denise F on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above, of course! Love this idea.

    —Marsha Teter on January 10, 2018

    Sandy R. on January 10, 2018
  • It looks like a beautiful way to record ones journey. I would do all the above

    —Robin on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above. I sometimes keep notes in the pattern book. But this would have a central place for all my notes. My son wants me to journal about each quilt I’ve made and this would be perfect.

    —Sheila Fernkopf on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above since it is so important as a reminder to ourselves and our loved ones that quilts are an expression of love.

    Joyce on January 10, 2018
  • I’d put notes on my quilting progress and ideas for future projects.

    —Karen W on January 10, 2018
  • I think I just might go back and fill it in with the projects I have completed, document them. Write down the details of those quilts while the info is still in my memory bank! Then, maybe, start another one with current quilts I’m working on, and hope to someday finish,

    —Laura Benthien on January 10, 2018
  • I have a big stack of finished quilts and a longer list of people I’d like to gift a quilt some day. I’d use tthe journal as a document to match quilts with recipients… when the time is right.

    —Marianne on January 10, 2018
  • If I had a Quilters Journal I would have a place to put my myriad of plans for quilts I want to make and a place to put my dreams for quilts I dream of making. Life is so very short and as I am in my early 70’s I am trying to plan so that I can sew and enjoy my quilts as time shows us, life is a gift each and every day. I want to accomplish as many things as I can and the journal will point me in the planned direction.

    —Cheryl Harrod on January 10, 2018
  • I am a big list maker. I love crossing things off as they get done. And if I write them down, they are more likely to get done. I would use a journal to organize my ideas and inspirations, along with UFOs just waiting to be finished.

    —Melissa Gerber on January 10, 2018
  • I would include notes on current projects. Why did I buy that fabric, for what project? Drawings to quilts I would like to make in the future.

    —Renata on January 10, 2018
  • we love handmade work and all the stuff around, these are our world. nice idea to create our diary, the projects are so many!

    marta on January 10, 2018

  • I would use this journal to record my future quilt projects. And my ideas for the reason of what I bought specific fabrics for!

    —Wendy on January 10, 2018
  • I’d say All of the Above, but I’d probably be light on the prose section. It would be good to have a record in one place of all the projects I want to try, plus a note of all the mistakes I need to avoid in the future.

    —Sandy May on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above and maybe I could think of other uses for this nifty journal!

  • I think if I had a journal to help myself keep track of my quilting projects, I would be a lot more organized. And maybe complete more projects and quilts too!!

    —Janan Doster on January 10, 2018
  • I would note the day’s accomplishments, ideas for future quilts, fabric and notion purchases, as well as random thoughts that I always have when I am happily quilting!

    —Jane Charnley on January 10, 2018

    —Pam Knight on January 10, 2018

    —Joy B on January 10, 2018
  • If I had the Quilters Journal I would fill it with projects to complete and list the projects for things I would like to do. It would be so helpful for me to use with my quilt group and keep track of things we are going to do or want to do like having a teacher or two.

    —Terri Douglass on January 10, 2018
  • I would use it to plan future projects, and keep track of ones I have completed. Thanks for the giveaway, and fun new product!

    Denise L. on January 10, 2018
  • It would be ALL OF THE ABOVE. I just wish I had time to sew every day to be able to write what I had gotten done, every day.

    —Cindy on January 10, 2018
  • Great place to explore ideas, store photos of inspiration, and keep with you to also share with quilty friends!!

    —Katherine Hanson on January 10, 2018

  • I love your concept of the Quilter’s Journal….how lovely. I would record my projects and lists to complete them.

    —Lana Drum on January 10, 2018
  • Love the format of the quilter’s journal. It looks like lots of space to show projects and record information. The last few years my local quilt shop has given my Friday group a planner with quilt graphics. I have been keeping track of my spending and projects. It’s fun to look back and see what I’ve accomplished. This year she wasn’t able to get those planners and I’m thinking "oh dear, how am I going to keep track of what I’m spending and making".

    —Donna on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above!

    —Eleanor K HunzingerI on January 10, 2018

  • If I had A Quilters Journal, I’d fill it with ideas for future projects, as well as notes about works in progress.

    —Jackie Trembley on January 10, 2018
  • I’d use this journal for all of the above & more. I like to record when I started a quilt, what fabrics I used, who it’s for, when I finished the piecing of the top (most likely years after I started) & who long-armed it for me (which can also be more years from when I finished it—since I quilt with my checkbook & sadly it’s not a type priority of bills that need to be paid on a fixed income). Sorry for the long response, but I really would love to have this Journal. I also LOVE Lisa’s "stuff"!!

    —Jan B on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above!!!
    I am always looking for paper to write something down, ideas come at all times of the day.
    It is a beautiful book!

    —Kathy Timmons on January 10, 2018
  • I am no longer organized and need a journal to help me gain control of my thoughts. So it would probably the lists and that it is not by dates. The journal looks beautiful

    —carol on January 10, 2018

    —Erika W on January 10, 2018
  • My completed projects and dreams for the future

    —Donna on January 10, 2018

    —Margaret Foiles on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above. Thoughts quilts to make and material that I would be interested in for projects.
    A handy tool to take when shopping.

  • all of the above. I have always wanted to see my progression in making a quilt.

    —beth on January 10, 2018
  • I keep a photo file on all my projects but this journal would be a great tool for new projects. Especially if you find most of the materials in your stash except for one or two pieces the journal would be handy to keep your color tones for when you do find those pieces. Great idea!

    —Diane Baldwin on January 10, 2018
  • Definitely all of the above! It certainly would help me keep track of what fun quilty projects I want to do next!

    —Vicki Sprain on January 10, 2018

    —Jackie Lewis on January 10, 2018

  • Quotes about the creative process and ideas for my future original-design quilts would go into the pages of such a nice journal. I keep another book for photos of finished projects with a few facts about the pattern, fabrics, completion date and recipient.

    —Marty on January 10, 2018
  • Very inspiring. All of the above! Thanks.

    —Maryellen on January 10, 2018

  • All of the above, but primarily project ideas

    —Karen on January 10, 2018
  • All of the above – especially my ideas and thoughts – because somehow I can’t remember as well as I used to!!

    —Gale P on January 10, 2018
  • Would use it for all those plus many other comments, plans and notes. Would also love to
    be able to make quick sketches and ideas for sewing.

    —Melanie C on January 10, 2018
  • all of the above plus whatever takes my fancy- samples of materials and bits and pieces, pictures of quilts I still want top make and books that I want to buy

    —marlene Auret on January 10, 2018
  • It’s ditto to the above messages, never quite get organized and always start fresh at new year and I’ve been looking for a journal…., I could start with an inventory of all "ghost" quilts, (patterns/fabrics/and UNCUT)

    ….another Carol!
    Happy New Year

    —Carol on January 10, 2018
  • I would definitely fill it with all of the above!!! I would also include sketches of ideas for future projects!

    —Kerry Linklater on January 10, 2018
  • Definitely fill my quilters journal with projects to to, what a wonderful idea, my planning consists of scraps of paper, lists and patterns scattered all over the place. A coordinated journal would definitely help my pattern and fabric buying and what a lovely record to keep for the future. Liz

    —Liz on January 11, 2018
  • Al of the above! What a wonderful book!

    —JoAnne T. on January 11, 2018
  • A quilt journal I would fill with ideas but also the starting and finishing dates of quilts I work on. With notes on how to and everything else about quilts. I have a book like that, just a note book but a book with beautiful pictures to inspire is just lovely.

    A. Bouwman on January 11, 2018
  • What a great idea and beautifully done! I would love to keep track of the Memory Quilts I make. Each quilt is special and what a great organized way to document each one.

    —Marlene on January 11, 2018
  • This would be a great journal to record daily progress as well as inspirations.

    —Mary Williams on January 11, 2018
  • i would use it to document the process of the quilt making ie measurements, colors chosen, etc. I do this now on scraps pieces of papers. When I want to do a similar quilt but can’t remember how I did it, having it in a journal would allow me to find the stuff.

    —Nancy R on January 11, 2018
  • All of the above. Currently have a quilt picture journal my Mother started many years ago of each quilt she hand quilted. I have continued to fill the pages with my own quilts completed since her passing.

    —jBonita Harms on January 11, 2018
  • There is something about actually writing things down on paper – great book. I think it would be a great place to keep track of projects – plans and finished ones. Thanks!

    —Joanne on January 11, 2018
  • Stories and sketches. And blocks.

    —Patricia Hersl on January 11, 2018

    —Sara Bates on January 11, 2018

    —Elke on January 11, 2018
  • I would use it for all of the above –such a beautiful way to keep track of all the projects — maybe there would be fewer UFO’s !

    —Sue on January 11, 2018
  • In progress and future projects and plans definitely.
    But quilters ALSO need a place to compile our completed projects as well. Now I see scraps and sort of remember what I used them in, but I’d like to compile my pictures I take, and who I made it for etc. Is there a program, like family tree maker for instance, where one can keep records of who what when etc on our projects? Am I inspiring a tech savvy quilter to come up with such an item? I’ve told everyone I made a baby quilt for that I need a picture of the baby with the quilt, and I make a photo when I gift it to them… now where am I going to keep that memory? I never get around to scrapbooking…

    —Sharon Schipper on January 11, 2018
  • I would have to say all of the above–and I think I would spend a lot of time drooling over the photos!

    —Karen in Breezy Point on January 11, 2018
  • If I had A Quilter’s Journal I would fill it with ideas for future projects and plans for quilty travels. Often the ideas for future projects come during travels so it would be very handy to have with at all times.

    —Audrey on January 11, 2018
  • I would fill it with future projects to keep positive along with doctors appointments

    —Deb on January 11, 2018
  • Beautiful journal! I would keep a record on quilts and projects made for family and friends along with future quilt projects. It would be a great place to also record the Blessings and Joys that I have received from giving quilts and projects to others!

    —Teresa on January 11, 2018
  • I would fill my quilter’s Journal with "all of the above". Thank you for the draw.

    —Edith Gorzo on January 11, 2018

    —Tracy on January 11, 2018

    —Barbara Reifsnider on January 12, 2018

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on January 12, 2018
  • I would mostly write about ideas for future projects, but love to reminisce about how far I’ve come in the world of quilting and all the wonderful people I’ve met on this journey. I’ve always wanted to journal my quilting adventures, mostly to set goals, writing it down helps to make it happen! This might just be the book to inspire me to do just that.

    —Jade on January 12, 2018
  • Thanks for the chance to win a great prize. I’d fill it with photos of finished quilts, ideas for new quilts, progress reports on current projects, shopping lists and travel ideas.

    —Teresa Knittingdancer on January 12, 2018
  • Sew would document all of the above. Love this!

    —Elaine Hoffarth on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above. The journal would be great for when I want to make a second or third quilt of the same pattern; it would be helpful to have written my thoughts at the time, any shortcuts I made and the colors used.

    —debby on January 12, 2018
  • I would fill it with current projects, UFO projects and new projects I would like to try.

    —Cathy on January 12, 2018

  • The journal is a little bit of sunshine for all the goodness we create when we sew. Love it!

    —Aunt Peggy on January 12, 2018

    —Mandy M on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above for sure! What a great idea. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Karen McMahon on January 12, 2018
  • If I had the Quilter’s Journal I would fill it with all my ideas for future projects.

    —Susan Linder on January 12, 2018
  • What a beautiful book. I hope I would use it as intended to corral my many projects and keep me on track while providing a written trail of where my year has gone.
    Thanks for a chance and Happy New Year to you all.

    —Jacqueline Leibfried on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above (but probably mostly ideas for future projects!)

    —Mary on January 12, 2018

    —Margaret Desjardine on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above — my thoughts for my family after I am gone and an understanding of my quilt journey.

    —Donna Wingo on January 12, 2018
  • I would love to have a journal like this to keep track of quilt deals. Sometimes they fly thick and fast!

    —Ellie on January 12, 2018
  • I would start recording my weekly progress. It would inspire me to finish more starts.

    Susan Tomporowski on January 12, 2018
  • Piles of little quilty notes and photos all over the place could be organized into one book. This would help me to no end. Thanks for a great give-away.

    —Nancy Lyman on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above. It is a beautiful journal. Perhaps if I wrote things down and kept track I would finish more items. Look out UFOs.

    —Karen Weidler on January 12, 2018
  • I’d use it to list my UFOs (if there are enough pages). Thanks for this opportunity to win!

    —Jean D on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above! I sew everyday and love the way you feel when all the pieces come together. The joy when you give the gift of a quilt is priceless!!!!

    —Pam Uhan on January 12, 2018
  • I too sew every day, except when I visited family over the holidays. But I would use the journal for all of the above.

    —stephanie woodward on January 12, 2018
  • I actually got one of the journals through Lisa’s website and I love it! So inspiring and the pictures are beautiful. These journals would make perfect gifts for quilting friends!

    —Sue Arndt on January 12, 2018
  • Well, all of the above, of course!
    What a great tool for quilters.

    —Karen on January 12, 2018
  • Ideas for future projects!

    —Caryn Schipper on January 12, 2018
  • I try to sew every day, and when I’m not sewing I’m thinking about sewing. This journal would be great for writing down those ideas before my brain moves on to something else.

    —Caryn Goulden on January 12, 2018
  • If I had the beaurtiful Quilter’s Journel I would fill it with plans and dreams. I would also document my quilts.

    —Carolyn Meadows on January 12, 2018
  • If I had a quilting journal it may help me focus on one project, instead of multiple ones at a time. I’d use it to set daily/weekly/monthly goals.

    —Sheri Rhodes on January 12, 2018
  • "A Quilters Friend" to share all my secret quilting plans, progress, and embarrassing mistakes!

    —marie on January 12, 2018
  • I would fill it with progress & dreams!

    —June on January 12, 2018
  • If I had the Quilters Journal I’d probably use it for future projects and then add info once I make the item.

    —Michelle Eacret on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above…I try to document the quilts I give away with a picture and the name of the person receiving it. I do try that much.

    —Grams on January 12, 2018
  • I sure could use this book to help me track all my projects I have started and am working on. Our group starts a lot of quilts and I am really behind. Then keeping track of quilt camps and road trips. I can think of a million thing. Thanks Lisa for designing this great journal

    —Linda Munn on January 12, 2018

    —Pam Hintze on January 12, 2018

    —Candee on January 12, 2018
  • As a new quilter to the quilt world I find this to be a wonderful tool. I love the inspiring pictures and quotes in the journal. My head swirls with to-do quilts and quilts shops to visit. Many quilters share so much on social media this would be a great place to keep track. Thank you for creating such a fun and wonderful keepsake:)
    Lori Duval

    —Lori Duval on January 12, 2018
  • I would use this book for my new ideas for future projects and keeping track of current projects.

    —Lillian K on January 12, 2018
  • If I had this journal, I would write down future projects that I want to do, projects I am currently working on-my progress- or not, insert pictures of my finished projects,and maybe a little note of what was going on in my life at that time. I think it would be fun when the journal is complete, to sit down and read all of my entries-memories created!

    —Pamela D Miller on January 12, 2018
  • My focus these days are projects, some of them wool, some quilts. So I would use this as more of a personal journal with thoughts including the whys of what I am making and daily thoughts about what is happening in my life.

    —Carolyn Vogel on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above! I would love to give this to my Mom. She quilts daily and this would be an ideal way to document her numerous projects, a beautiful tribute to her work. Thanks for the giveaways!

    —Linda on January 12, 2018
  • My new years resolution is to quilt a bit every day and this book would help keep me accountable to myself!

    —Diane Schroeder on January 12, 2018
  • All the above is my answer. I’d put a variety of quilty things in mine! Have a fun day! angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

    —Angela J Short on January 12, 2018
  • With a newly cleaned and sorted sewing space, I have been tackling my UFO’s and systematically finishing them. I would love to keep track of these in the Journal.

    —Carol Bartlow on January 12, 2018
  • What a beautiful book. I would use it for future projects, ideas, all I want to accomplish in the next few years.

    —Mary on January 12, 2018
  • It would be full of the inspirations and memories attached to each quilt I made

    —Tamara Eaker on January 12, 2018
  • I would love to see the inside of this beautiful new book and record my daily musing of progress on my quilting journey, fill it with photos of my completed tops and peruse through the pages for inspiration!

    —Kerry Coburn on January 12, 2018
  • I sew everyday even when we are traveling in our RV. What a great way to document the projects, the views, the good and not so good incidents, the shops I visit and the people I meet.

    —Robin Winall on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above. Beautiful looking journal

    —Susan G. on January 12, 2018
  • I would use it to write my history as a quilter. So much to pass down to my kids and grands that gets forgotten, the stories of why a quilt was made or the many "interesting" things that happen while attempting new patterns.

    —Marsha Sensel on January 12, 2018
  • I actually quilt/sew at least half an hour to an hour every morning before I go to work, it’s amazing what you can accomplish in that amount of time consistently in a week, month, year. And just this month, Jan. 1, I started a journal as to how my days are going. It’s just a notebook, nothing fancy. I hope to continue it all year long. Yours is very pretty, and it would be a lot more fun!

    —cindy wisherd on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above, but mostly about ideas. I find ideas everywhere so I have tons of pictures, articles and information about quilts. I could work on quilts everyday and not even come close to using everything that I have saved. I follow Lisa’s blog and enjoy it very much so I know this book will be a keeper.

    —Angela Bowling on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above. Have already purchased this journal, but a second one would be great for using after I fill the one I bought.

    —Louise Mease on January 12, 2018
  • Such a beautiful idea!

    —Therese H on January 12, 2018
  • I would use a quilting journal to keep track of what I have made and want to make.
    Might be a good place to keep track of the supplies I have and what I need to get to complete future projects.it would also be a good place to keep track of inspiring blogs etc.

    —Cynthia Schoenfeld on January 12, 2018
  • I think I would need more than one for all of the above. But a future planner would be first. I get over whelmed at all the options so if I had my favorites in a journal I could stay more focused. When I went to Primitive Gatherings Christmas open house I had a mental list but forget some things and came out with duplicate patterns. A journal would really help keep track of patterns and supplies. This book is beautiful and inspiring just like Lisa.

    —Krissy Butorac on January 12, 2018
  • A great way to document quilts (and other projects) as they are in progress and completed. I can see it as a great way to brainstorm projects before they are even started!

    —Kris B on January 12, 2018
  • I will journal my quilting starting this year about the projects that I bought years ago and am just getting to them now.

    —Nancy Yardley on January 12, 2018
  • I would fill it with thoughts of inspiration, daily gratitude and accomplishments, and steps towards goals. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    —Cindi P on January 12, 2018
  • I love this idea. One of the reasons I like quilting as many things a woman does don’t last: cooking, cleaning, etc. But when I sew, I love going in my sewing room before bed and looking at what I did that day. This would be a great place to record such.

    —mary h on January 12, 2018
  • This looks like a good place to keep track of all my UFO’s. I have projects that get put away for one reason or another and forgotten about.

    —Cindy Shope on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above. Wish I had started keeping a journal like this years ago!

    —Susan doe on January 12, 2018
  • I would fill it with all of the above. This journal looks fantastic

    —Donna W on January 12, 2018
  • If I had a journal I would keep it beside my bed as it is usually there that I get my best ideas! While sleeping…and I could immediately write them down in it. Also, record quilty moments that happen during the day such as what I get done, whom I gift them too, and plans for future quilts. Love this book! Lisa is so talented. Thanks for the chance to win one!

    —Helen Glover on January 12, 2018
  • A journal would help me organize my love of quilting. I would finally document my quilting history with pictures and comments of my quilts and other quilting projects, never to forget what wonderful things I have created during my lifetime. The journal would be passed down to my daughter in hopes she will continue to love and share my quilting too.

    —Carole Thiel on January 12, 2018
  • I would love to use this beautiful journal to keep track of my quilt finishes. I regret not having a list of quilts that I’ve made, especially the ones I’ve gifted. A journal like this would help keep me on track. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Sandy Evenson-Hagen on January 12, 2018
  • I have never kept a journal. This is lovely and just what I need to begin journaling consistently which will help me to organize my thoughts, my projects, my days, my life!

    —Peggy Johnson on January 12, 2018
  • I would do “all of the above!” What a beautiful book. Would love to win it!

    —Tina W on January 12, 2018
  • I think I would keep my entire life in this journal. It’s so beautiful, how could I not want to keep up with projects, birthdays, anniversaries and all the good things going on in my life. Well done!

    —carolyn on January 12, 2018
  • I would welcome this journal as a way to motivate my organization quest and to document my quilting progress. And as inspiration for creativity. And just as a thing of beauty itself.

    —Cathy Cavagnaro on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above!

    —Teri c on January 12, 2018
  • This quilters planner is just what I need. A central place to keep all of my projects and production in one place.
    As a caregiver for my 94 year old daddy and also a gramma to a little girl from each of my own daughters, I try to sew every evening after dinner.
    I love making things for everyone I love

    —Rosemary Bolton on January 12, 2018
  • If I had a journal I would note all my progress on each project along with comments on what success and not so successful things or techniques I used.
    Another thing I would do is take pictures of my completed quilts which very often forget to do.

    Diane Koprowski-Pfeifer on January 12, 2018
  • What a lovely inspiring journal. I like the idea of not having to write in it every day but still record the important quilting life.

    —Bernice on January 12, 2018
  • This beautiful journal would be an amazing first step in getting and staying organized with my quilting projects, not to mention planning, dreaming and remembering all the ones I have a desire to begin! Thanks for a chance to win!

    —Doris Rushing on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above. I love this Journal!

    —Sharyn Riegler on January 12, 2018
  • Definitely all of the above! I always feel like such a failure when I get a new planner and halfway through the year my notes get shorter and I write less often. Not having the pressure of a date to fill in would be perfect! Thanks for the fun!

    Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts on January 12, 2018
  • I would use it daily as I always have more than one project in the works. It would be great to see my progress.

    —Melinda on January 12, 2018
  • I love to keep a picture of my quilts and who gets them and loves them . This would give me a great place to keep track of all those pictures.

    —Kim F on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above… what an awesome way to keep organized

    —Anne thate on January 12, 2018
  • Love this! It would be all of the above. I would hope that someday my grandkids or great grandkids would like to read my quilting journal.

    —Ann p. on January 12, 2018
  • I have so many quilting ideas running through my mind. I would record all of the above and a list of quilts that I have been an inspiration. I would list the name of the quilt and reference where I saw it.
    Thank you for the chance to win,
    Happy Stitching,
    Lona

    —Lona Long on January 12, 2018
  • An inspirational journal. I would use it to spur me on to finish my UFOs and record them as they are completed.

    —Kay W on January 12, 2018
  • I like to keep the amounts of fabric with swatches if have them so can match the right fabric when shopping. Plus there`s a record of my progress,sometimes quite slow but other times a finish so letting me know I made it. A journal is a memory book in later years as well so not only I can remember but hope my girls and granddaughter see the quilts progress too. Thank you for this inspiration.

    Clare on January 12, 2018
  • If I had a journal I would keep track of all the quilts I have made and the story behind each
    One as a keepsake

    —Lori T on January 12, 2018
  • If I had A Quilter’s Journal, I’d fill it with my quilts in progress with swatches, pattern name, date started, etc. I would love to be able to put photos of finished quilts with information to track what I’ve done if space permits.

    —Sandra D, Joliet on January 12, 2018
  • Like many before me, I sew everyday, too.I would love to record all projects and the learning steps in between! Many a project takes some twists and turns before being completed. This would be a recording of myquilting experiences to leave for my daughters and granddaughters. I am excited thinking about trying this new direction for me.

    —Alfreda R. on January 12, 2018
  • I’d fill my journal with some projects started and finished and unfinished over the last 20 years, a list of projects in my queue, places I want to go with quilty friends, memories of time shared with my buddies, in quilting classes and so much more. I think I may need several journals, just to get started good. Looks like another winner from one of my favorite teachers, author’s and vendors. Love that Lisa Bonjean!

    —Cyndy on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above as I would journal in it, writing my ideas for new projects as well as describing my ongoing adventures in quilting. Thanks for such a wonderful book.

    —Marie Eddins on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above. I like to document things.

    —Daniela M on January 12, 2018
  • I HAVE the journal. I LOVE it! If I won the give-a-way I would give it to one of my best friends-so she also could share in it’s beauty.

    We’re thrilled to hear that you love it, Sheila! –Jenny

    —Sheila A Snyder on January 12, 2018
  • I would put people that I would take a class from and when I did it. I would put in my projects and keep track of where I am with it, and comment on what I like or don’t like about the project.

    —Kathy Williams on January 12, 2018
  • I would use it to keep track of when I start and finish projects, new ideas and as kind of a diary.

    —Barb K. on January 12, 2018
  • I keep random journals with things to remember, sketches and inspirations. I love that your journal does not have calendar dates but does have room for things that I want to save and access easily. It is also a size that will be easy to put in my purse. Thanks for doing this.

    —Lou Mongler on January 12, 2018
  • I try to quilt some every day, some times for fun, some times for not so much fun. 😉 I do quilts for clients, it’d be fun to have a great journal to keep track of thes quilts (projects).

    —Beth on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above. I try to document my plans and my progress, but have struggled with where and how. This looks perfect

    —Judy on January 12, 2018
  • Finally a way to keep track of all my projects both started and Finished

    —Catherine Rolfson on January 12, 2018
  • “All of the Above” ! And more… fabric swatches and thread samples, shopping lists and quilt shop info. All the things I need to remember and don’t!

    —Sandie Mackintosh on January 12, 2018
  • If I had this journal I would do it all! Maybe that way I would get some motivation by keeping track of what I do when it comes to my making quilts.

    —Genevieve C on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above plus photos of the quilts I’ve made. I’d add why I chose the fabric and pattern for the individual I made the quilt for. I’d also add future projects that I would like to tackle and who I’d make them for. Hopefully it would be a journal that my sons would appreciate some day long in the future.

    —Roxanne on January 12, 2018
  • With a quilters’ journal, I would record ideas for future projects and record thoughts on current projects (lessons learned etc).

    —Laura Manning on January 12, 2018
  • If I had this journal I would write my prayers that I have for the future recipient of the quilt; The loving memories of designing and working on the project; the random thoughts of next quilts to make.

    —Mary Dahlberg on January 12, 2018
  • This is just what I need to both celebrate achievements and keep projects on track.

    —Gail M on January 12, 2018
  • I machine quilt, hand quilt or do hand work every day. I write my thoughts, ideas and progress down, but it’s always in a different notebook or calendar. This journal would be wonderful.

    —Gail Roman on January 12, 2018
  • I’d use it to organize myself and log my journey, as I begin to quilt again after 20 years. I could document my quilting "re-start"! Especially, as things in the quilting world have changed so much: quilting blogs, blog hops, and online patterns! But, I still love to hold a beautiful book in my hands, and find inspiration in it. I’d love to record my thoughts, progress, work and "the journey"! What a beautiful and inspiring book it looks to be!

    —Lori G on January 12, 2018
  • I have always tried journaling but always give up after a while. I think this beautiful quilt journal may be the answer. I would have to say All of the above would be my answer to the question.

    —Julia Stavran on January 12, 2018
  • Perfect place to put all my sketches and doodles. I have a box crammed with scraps of paper with quilting designs and ideas. Sadly, the box runneth over.

    piecrust on January 12, 2018
  • Probably all my projects on the go. There are a lot of them and I like to keep track of the fabrics, threads, patterns, etc, so it’s easier to get back to it (sometimes after a long break). I might use it for the other things also – planning, traveling, doodling but I’m not sure.

    —Rebecca Keizer on January 12, 2018
  • All the above! I sew / quilt everyday! I am currently finishing up my triangle gatherings blocks & planning future quilts. I usually have 3-4 quilts going at a time & journaling would definitely help keep on track as well as finishing up all the unfinished ones!

    —Sally Matlock on January 12, 2018
  • Lots of Love will go into my journal!

    —Beth Esser on January 12, 2018

    This Journal is BEAUTIFUL. 🙂

    Jeri on January 12, 2018
  • I would use it to document completed projects and plan current and future projects. Having everything in one place instead of scraps of paper would be so helpful. My organizational skills could certainly use some help.

    —BARBARA W on January 12, 2018

    —Sally on January 12, 2018

    —Jackson Watkins on January 12, 2018

    —Tammi Williams on January 12, 2018
  • I would fill it with ideas for future projects.

  • I would love to have this new book for all the reasons stated. Right now I am planning to start a quilt for the time we visited Alaska and use all the beautiful fabrics I found in that beautiful state. Many ideas are filling my brain and where to start.

    —Althea Klosterman on January 12, 2018
  • All of the above. This looks like a good motivater to keep busy making quilts.

    —Cindy K on January 12, 2018
  • I lose track of all the quilt alongs so this would be ideal for tracking which quilt-along is on what day of the month. Plus my quilt projects would be in there and any ideas that inspire me to make a quilt.

    —Glenda Hollander on January 12, 2018
  • I would like to keep a record of which quilt I made for who and why. Also a picture and scraps of some of my favorite fabrics. That way when my memory is not there I can look back at my quilting life and hopefully remember the pleasure it brought me. My Mom remembers nothing about her early life and has no pictures to help her remember. To me that is so sad.

    —Donna on January 12, 2018
  • I love to quilt. My grandma taught me about quilting in the 1960s and I’ve gotten back to it about 3 years ago. I have so much fabric and so many ideas, and Lisa, I have to say your ability to give precise and accurate sizings and instructions as well as the fabulous HST triangupapers, have inspired me to some pretty cool quilts: Magic if Christmas and Triangle Gatherings, and blockheads! So I now read your blog often and hope you’ll do another BOM or something soon. So, with your journal I will keep rtack of quilts made, quilts in progress, and fabrics and patterning. If I win this book I will be so happy!
    Nancy Daly

    —Nancy Daly on January 12, 2018
