is designed just for you.
It will help you organize your life, make healthy choices, move toward balance, inspire creativity, improve your quilting skills, and crush your goals.
Why a planner?
There’s something pretty special about putting a pen to paper that makes everything more tangible, which makes us more productive, less stressed, and happier.
Imagine waking up with a smile on your face because you know exactly which tasks you’ll tackle, and how many projects you have in the works. You’ll also know the steps you need to take to finish things in time, and you’ll finally have everything in one complete, compact place.
Maybe you’ve struggled with keeping your projects, notes and calendar organized, and you’ve been searching for the perfect planning system to help. The answer is — the Quilter’s Planner!
Customize your planner
You are a beautiful, unique soul, so why not make your planner as unique as you are?
We offer a number of ways you can customize your planner, from the cover design (10 options to choose from!), to the calendar start day, and even how you plan your week. Each planner is made one at a time. Just for you with the options you pick.
Choose your start day: Monday or Sunday
One of the best ways to customize your planner is picking the calendar week start day.
We know that this is an important decision for you, and it affects how you plan your week.
*Note: Your monthly and weekly calendars will both start with the same day of the week, Monday or Sunday, depending on which you choose.
Choose a Weekly Calendar design
One of the highlights in the Quilter’s Planner is the option to choose from four different weekly spreads.
This option has vertical columns with hour slots, a daily top 3 priority list, and multiple to-do lists.
This horizontal calendar format doesn’t have hour slots, but has more space to write and take notes.
Perfect for those who primarily use the monthly calendar and want to use weekly pages for notes and doodles.
Do you love to bullet journal? This design is for you! It is wide-open to your imagination.
Each spread (regardless of the design you choose) also includes our popular weekly quilting tips and free-motion quilting design ideas.
Other features of the Quilter’s Planner
The monthly calendar is simple and uncluttered, allowing you the space you need to plan your life.
The left margin has a space to set your monthly goals, to inspire and remind you about what you’re working toward achieving each month. It could be living a healthier life, it could be to finish the quilt that’s sitting on your shelf. It’s up to you! But research shows that setting realistic goals and writing them down leads to more success, so go for it!
The monthly calendar also helps you stay on top of the most popular sewalongs, swaps and other quilting events, so you never have to wonder what’s happening in the quilt world. You’ve got it all right there, conveniently in your Quilter’s Planner. What could be better, right?

You will be amazed at how much using the planner to plan your life and quilting can bring a sense of balance and increase your ability to make time for creativity.
This whole section of the book is dedicated to helping you get and stay organized with your works in progress.
The Project Planner 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. And the best part? You can even attach your fabric swatches and a picture or sketch of your project at the top or on the full page Dot Grid page.
The Projects At-A-Glance page allows you to list all of your works in progress, so you can see all of your quilts or projects in one place, and track your progress, priorities and deadlines.
