You’re Sure to Find Something Here That’s Right for You!

If you’re anything like me, it’s very easy for books, magazines and patterns to get out of hand in the sewing room. I love collecting quilt ideas and my “print” collection certainly reflects that – but sometimes I struggle to keep everything contained and organized.

Andy from A Bright Corner has put together an excellent article with many ideas for organizing books, patterns and magazines. There are several tips that I’ll be looking at more closely. I especially like her ideas for storing PDF quilt patterns and for keeping a notebook of current projects.

The beauty of her methods is that not only is everything contained, it’s easy to find what you want when you want it. Nice!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
