Hi Ladies,

We have a discussion topic coming up this next week. I will lead a discussion on quilting journals, their importance to our craft, and the legacy we leave to our children and grandchildren by documenting our quilts. I believe it will be on Thursday night at 6:00 pm central time. Correct me if I'm wrong on this Jess.

Hope to see you all there.

Connie

That is correct Nawma, it will be this Thursday (January 3) at 6 pm CST. I hope some of you can make it!

Nawma will post an outline of topics we will cover and I will make a template that you can download to use in your own Journal. Come join the discussion and learn about the importance of keeping track of your quilting.

Btw, we plan to have the Discussion Sessions on the first Thursday of each month. If you have ideas or would like to moderate a session, please let us know.

Hi Ladies,

Here's a brief outline of some of the things I want to talk about tomorrow night in the journaling discussion. I've done a bit of research today on the history of quilt journals and I think we will all enjoy this discussion.

Connie

Connie, some of us don't have microsoft word, which produces a .doc file. I have that darn new vista and we have microsoft works, which produces a .wps file. I know Jess had to send me some different files, or maybe she just posted a different file. I couldn't read the file either. :( Wendy

I'm going to try my best to be on-line tonight for your discussion.  I've wished so much that I'd started a Quilt Journal away back when - - - -  .  Fortunately I can reconstruct some information about the first two or three quilts I made.  There's a few inbetween that I really don't remember much about - that was during a very bad time of my life and some things are quite foggy.  But I'll start my journal with the Star Quilt my grandma helped me make - I remember nearly everything about that one, as well as the Double Wedding Ring I made because I was too stupid to know that that pattern isn't for beginners!!! :laugh:  I made it and it turned out well, even tho' it was only my second quilt ever!

Looking forward to your discussion - should have the chores finished and supper out of the way by that time!

Nola

i won't promise to be there either.  today is billy & my 26th anniversary so if he is home tonight, then i'll spend the evening with him even if all we do is watch the boob tube - not sure how he would take it if i said i wanted to spend our anniversary evening with the gals on the puter!  LOL

but yes, journaling is important and on that note i do need to start my own quilt journal.  i have been taking pics tho and have them on disc & ready to print when i do get started.  so far i haven't been quilting so long that i can't recall the details, but i still better not wait too long!! 

after going thru family photos with NOTHING written on the backs, i can only guess at who some of the people are, where the photos were taken, the occassion, date, etc., and since anyone in my family would know is gone now, well, none of us will ever know . . . don't want that to happen with our quilts - not any more!

Connie,

I have a quilt guild meeting tonight so I won't be able to participate. Will the journal templates be available after the discussion? I'd love to have a sample to go by in the future.

Thanks

Lauren

I'm rather tired this evening and I just know I won't be up to join you all - sorry BUT I do have Sunday diarised :)  I also wondered, Connie, if you were going to post the journal page ?  I'm hopeless at journals but I do recognise their worth - I've kept a photo record of all the quilts I've made - maybe I need to organise them as a 2008 project :)
