Every quilt has a story - and if you're struggling to capture that story about each quilt you make, I've got you covered! I have a free printable Quilt Project Tracker Document!

Whether you're trying to store information in one easy place to make show submissions easier or you want to share this quilt's story with the recipient of the quilt, this document helps you track all the details!
