Keeping an inventory of your Quilts

One of my goals this year is to photograph & keep a current log of my quilts. I have given away alot more than I have kept, so I asked family and friends to send me a photo of the quilt I have given them...no photo's yet, but I'm still hoping!
This is a quilt I made about 8 years ago for my Hubby. It is paper pieced logs cabin blocks made from the scraps of other quilts. It is tied with small black knots...wanted to get it quilted, but didn't have the money.
In Closing: How do you document your quilts? Do you put a label on each one? Do your quilts have names? Share, please..........

I started by keeping a small album of photos. A friend's son put together a slide show on disc for her which was neat.
I do label and name quilts, I used to give them interesting names but with traditional patterns, I call them what they are. I think it good to keep a record in one place.

I don't do nearly a good enough job of documenting my quilts and I really wish I had done so through the years. Nope, not very good at labels either.

I love that quilt, reminds me of library books. :)

We should get one of my book photos and your quilt together sometime! I shot that photo sometime last week, so it was a funny coincidence.
