I am very lax at recording the quilts that I make. Sometimes that is because I am in a rush to finish a piece and forget to photograph it before I give it away and other times I just move straight onto the next project. Tonight, though, I started to work out how to document my quilts.
Digital images of my quilts have been accumulating on my computer, but I hadn't organised them in any way and certainly hadn't written any text to go with them. I suddenly had a panic about them tonight and decided to deal with them in a couple of different ways: to keep the digital images (with meaningful names) together in a folder on the computer; to create Word documents that include the image and text; and to print these documents out for my spiral-bound folder. I'll probably also burn them all to CD once I truly get organised.
I would love to know how you organise your quilt records. Please post a comment and let me know what you do - maybe we can learn some new tricks from each other!
