I must admit... ever since I had to miss Quilt Market last weekend, I've felt lacking for inspiration in the quiltmaking department. I needed something to give me that boost of creative energy and get me going again. And then look what I got in the mail from Fat Quarter Shop: the Scrappy Project Planner by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet!
When I first saw it online, I was thinking that my current weekly planner is almost at the end and I need something to start writing down next year's appointments and deadlines.
I'm already a huge fan of Lori's quilt patterns and fabric. I met her at Spring Quilt Market in May and she is such a dear (oh, why did you make me think of market again?).
I knew that there would be pages for planning sewing and quilting projects (hence the name - Scrappy Project Planner). But - surprise! - there is so much more than that.
There are 6 adorable quilt patterns, yay! Plus pages and pages of quiltmaking tips and handy charts like 'how many squares can I get from a fat quarter?' I can totally appreciate having that information in my planner instead of having to go search for it.
I really like that it is spiral bound so it lays flat or I can fold it back to keep the current week or project in sight.
And you see it made me pull out my Cotton + Steel scrap bin to start a new mini quilt. It's working already, lol. You can find the Scrappy Project Planner here at Fat Quarter Shop.
