I wanted to share with you, The Quilter’s Planner! This is the passion project of my friend Stephanie from Late Night Quilter. She was struggling with keeping her busy schedule with kids, quilting projects and life in general in one spot, so she came up with the idea of having a place for all her projects, weekly and monthly schedules in one place! After talking with hundreds of quilting friends across the country, she decided to dive in and create The Quilter’s Planner! I just love this idea and this story, already the quilting community is supporting this endeavor which is so awesome.
I wanted to make sure you were aware of this so that you could order your own planner through the indiegogo campaign and get it in time for the holidays! The more support Stephanie has, the more it will help make this a planner that can be produced year after year with more and more features!
The Quilter’s Planner has everything you need to organize your life, plan and track your sewing projects and be inspired to create something beautiful every day!
It is approximately 8 x 11, made in the USA, and will be shipped in time for the holidays.

I love that the monthly calendar has prompts on the left to write your goals for the month, and the personal, work and quilting projects you need to tackle. I also love the space on the bottom to write notes… phone numbers, addresses, reminders, ideas.
The weekly two-page calendar has plenty of space to write your daily appointments. The left hand margin has instructions for an original quilt block design developed by fantastic bloggers in our quilting community. The bottom of the page has separate areas for writing your work, personal and quilting to do lists, and an area for notes.
This page is my personal favorite for the planner. I love to design quilts and projects on graph paper, and there are blank sheets of graph paper included throughout the planner for doodling and planning.
Best of luck to you Stephanie!! It seems the quilting community is already behind you, so I hope this campaign is successful and helps you reach your goals!!! Now, everyone go get your planners and get one for a friend too!! I know I’m off to get mine 😉
