September 15, 2015

Hello!  Welcome to Tips and Tutorials Tuesday!  To link up your own tips and tutorials today, scroll to the bottom of the page.

I have an exciting announcement today that many of you have heard tidbits about over the last few months.


2016 Day Planner for Quilters by Stephanie Palmer at Late Night Quilter 

I am thrilled to announce that I am publishing a Day Planner  for 2016 that’s specifically designed for  quilters!  It’s a  daily  planner   that will inspire you to  achieve your  goals, and  organize both        your personal  life and your  quilting life.  Imagine  having to-do    lists for your quilting  projects and your home and  work life all in     one place…. and space to write all  your  appointments and    responsibilities too.  

  And what about when you have those  brilliant ideas in the      middle of the night for your next project?  There’s graph paper  for   sketching out your quilt ideas, blank space to  brainstorm or      practice  free  motion quilting drawings, and project planning    pages.  And a quilting reference section too.  It’s all  there!

 Plus, there will be instructions for a gorgeous, original  quilt  block on each weekly spread (courtesy of the wonderful new quilt bloggers from 2015), and fantastic quilt  patterns from top  designers like Pat Sloan, Kitty Wilkin, Lee Heinrich, Mandy  Leins, Yvonne Fuchs,  Cheryl Brickey, me and more!

    I think that planner sounds like a fabulous idea. I would like blank paper as well as graph paper in there. And maybe a loop for a writing utensil…I would love my block included, don’t know if you are automatically including them all or not, but I’d love to be in it if possible, tell me what to do.

      There will be blank paper too! And I agree, a loop would be awesome. I am hoping that I will be able to include that. I want to put in as many special details as possible while still keeping the price point reasonable.

    I can’t WAIT for this planner to come out! I like lots of space to write daily schedules, the graph paper sounds fabulous, copious space for lists upon list of to-do items, maybe a blog planning option? With budget, write, reply, plan type options? I have no idea. Either way, I hope to use all of the features of this planner to the max and I’m so happy to have been a tiny part of making it happen!

    Congratulations! Looking forward to hearing more about the planner. What size will it be?

    This looks like so much fun! I’d need a spiral binding on a planner though if it has any hope of surviving a year. I’m a freelancer so I check my calendar multiple times during the day, and calendars like this haven’t survived more than a couple of months. I would love it if I could work a bit more quilting love into my day job though.

      I am working on making it available in spiral bound. A lot of people share your opinion about the benefits of the spiral!

    It looks great. It looks a lot the moleskin I use at the moment but with interesting quilty features.

    I’ve been excited ever since you mentioned told us about it on the FabriQuilt blog hop. I really like the idea of a spiral binding as well since I’m a lefty. I can turn the planner upside down for the blank pages to practice my FMQ designs.

    I am so super excited about your planner 🙂 Here’s to a killer October!
