I recently read a post on Barbara Brackman's blog about Sewing Diaries. It was really interesting and if you haven't seen it, just click on the link. I then saw Wilma's blog and she had done a post on Quilting Diaries too.
A couple of years ago, an issue of Homespun magazine came with a DVD from Leanne Beasely about creating a scrapbook to document our quilts. I gave it a go and have documented several of my quilts, but after reading these posts, it got me thinking that perhaps there was more that we needed to do to document each quilt. My journal has some interesting information about each quilt but nothing detailed, such as pieces of fabric and what range it came from.
Last year I participated in an Antique Quilt Study group and there were so many questions unanswered about the maker of each quilt, how much did she spend on fabric, how long did it take to make, what inspired her to make that particular design etc.
Anyway, it's Food for Thought. Who knows, 100 years into the future maybe our blog archives will be found somewhere and quilters will marvel at what we did "way back when".
Klosjes report is 5 for this week, making a total of 74!
I am still obsessed with Swan Lake at the moment and have prepared my second border of hexagons, all ready to be appliqued. Max refused to get off the quilt and every time I shooed him away and lined up another photo, he jumped back on it!
He is playing on it here, trying to attack something in his imagination!!!!
And of course, I have two more favourite hexagons for this week.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
