The Quilter's Planner 2017 by Stephanie Palmer and a Giveaway!

The Quilter’s Planner by Stephanie Palmer is the first of its kind, designed specifically for busy, creative quilters who have many life responsibilities. It contains everything you need to organize the work, personal and quilting parts of your life. This project represents a collaboration of members of our quilting community. More than 35 quilting bloggers generously submitted their blocks for inclusion, and 14 renowned designers contributed patterns  to make this planner a truly inspirational tool for all quilters.

The calendar year is clearly divided and separated into months with a sturdy laminated tab.The monthly calendar is simple and uncluttered, allowing you the space you need to plan your life and offers a quick monthly overview. 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.

There is a whole section of the book dedicated to helping you get and stay organized with your quilts in progress. The Project Planning Page has sections to keep notes about what materials you have for that project, what you need, and the steps you need to take to finish. You can even attach fabric swatches at the bottom and a picture or sketch of your project at the top!

Included also are 14 beautiful full quilt and sewing patterns, with color instructions by way of a supplemental e-book. Included in the e-book is my own Half Square Triangle Variation Quilt Pattern. When Stephanie emailed me to see if I was interested in contributing a pattern I jumped at the opportunity, for not only do I like to support other quilters in our community but I already had been using the 2016 edition of Stephanie's Quilter's Planner, and continue to use it every single day to plan and organise not just my quilting projects but all other aspects of my business and personal  life.

The projects are beautifully photographed by Kitty Wilkin of Night Quilter. Take a peek below of all 14 quilt patterns that form part of the Planner (two are included in the hard copy Planner, 12 patterns are available as a digital e-book). I don't know about you but I think that makes this Planner unique and represent excellent value for money. It would also make the perfect gift for your quilting friends or be sure to add it to your wish list this Christmas.

The Quilter's Planner is available to from Stephanie's online store: The Quilter's Planner. 

To receive planners by Christmas or Hanukkah, orders need to be placed by December 10th.  To receive orders by the New Year, orders need to be placed by December 20th.
