The Ultimate Knit & Crochet Project Planner

The Ultimate Knitting and Crochet Project Planner is an 8×10 PDF download including 54 full-color planning pages! Since it’s a PDF, it is also customizable so you can print more or less of the planning pages, making this planner totally customizable and unique to fit your needs!

Download this fun and colorful knitting and crochet project planner to keep track of all your yarn and fiber projects!

My knit and crochet planner pages include basic yarn weight and needle/hook size information as well as some helpful gauge measurements as well. I included a dream knit/crochet page to keep track of upcoming projects you want to remember. And of course, it includes project pages to keep track of all of your fiber-related projects including sketch areas where you can draw in your own designs or keep track of notes, changes, etc.

The Ultimate Knitting & Crochet Project Planner is an 8×10 PDF download including:

  • 54 full-color planning pages
  • Helpful Yarn Information Pages
  • Knit and Crochet Planning Pages
  • Dream Knitting Pages 
  • Notes Pages

Feel free to print as many extra copies of these pages as needed to fit your crafting goals!

Once done printing, you will want to spiral bind your planner. I just took mine to a local office supply store and had them spiral bind it with a clear vinyl cover on the front to help with durability. If you don’t want to spiral bind, you can always use a three-hole punch and add your pages to a 3-ring binder! That way you can easily add pages as you create!

And of course I added lots of note taking pages in the back where you can keep track of additional information, inspiration and ideas.

And what would a planner be without a little encouragement and inspiration along the way? Each section features a fun little quote to help encourage and brighten your day!

Vintage Truck of the Month Quilt Pattern: AUGUST

Happy August friends! I am super excited to be sharing a new Block of the Month series with you! My Vintage Truck of the Month series is going to be so fun, and the blocks are adorable!

On the first of each month, I will be releasing a new Vintage Truck of the Month. Each month’s truck will be carrying a fun new surprise in the back, along with the month abbreviation on the bottom. The blocks are all traditionally pieced and finish at 20″ x 24″. While some blocks may have several smaller pieces, they aren’t too difficult at all! And they are a perfect way to use up your scraps because each block can be totally different!

I plan to use them to decorate my sewing room, so I will change them out monthly just like you do a calendar. Because of this, I am basting, quilting, and binding them as individual blocks. But you can always save them up and sew them into a quilt when you are done as well! I can’t wait to get started, so without further ado, here is the block for August!

Get the Vintage Truck Block of the Month: AUGUST block pattern here!

I used scraps from my LellaBoutique stash for this block. It has my popular Vintage Truck carrying a cute little strawberry in the back! And of course our A-U-G letters at the bottom for August.

I did my standard meandering quilt pattern on this block and I think it just turned out so cute! I also can’t resist a gingham binding so…I chose this apple green binding and a fun blue floral from the Nest line by Lella Boutique.

Did I mention these blocks are so fast to put together too? It just took me one afternoon to complete this block, and now I can hang in my sewing room all month long!

Stay tuned for September 1, when the next block will release!

I hope you will join me on my Vintage Truck Block of the Month and I can’t wait to see what you all make!

How to Organize Your Fabric Scraps

We all have them. The more we sew, the more scraps we accumulate! We can either toss them, give them away, or figure out how to organize and use them. And today I’m going to show you how I’m making my fabric scraps work for me!

Watch How to Organize Your Fabric Scraps video here!

I’ve decided to cut my fabric into usable sizes. Anything larger than this will end up in my main fabric bins which I will show next time when I share how I organize my quilting fabric. Of course, you can cut your scraps into whatever sizes work best for you, but having them organized like this really helps you see what you have, and make sure that your scrap bins are easy to use.

  • 1-1/2″ strips
  • 2-1/2″ strips
  • 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ squares
  • 3-1/2″ strips
  • 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ squares

2021 Sew With Me – Sawtooth Star – Block 1

Happy Thursday friends! Today is so exciting because I am launching my 2021 Sew With Me Sew-a-long! Join me as I teach you how to make some of the most fun and classic quilt blocks!

Throughout this series, I hope to teach you some new skills, tips, and tricks, and at the end of the series, we will have a fun selection of blocks to sew together into a sampler quilt!

We will be starting off with a super easy quilt block, the Sawtooth Star block. This is a fun and classic quilt block that has had many different names throughout the years. It was originally called the Sawtooth Star block back in 1884 when it was published in the Farm & Fireside magazine. Since then it has also been referred to as the Variable Star, North Star, and Evening Star.

Regardless of what it is called, this classic quilt block is so much fun to make! And today I will be showing you a new technique called the “four at a time” flying geese technique. Of course, you can make the star points in a variety of ways, but the four-at-a-time method will make this block so easy!

Ready to get started?

Dive into your scrap bins and come sew with me!
