July 2016 Planning Printables!

July 2016 Planning Printables!

Some call it, “money spent on fabric,” but we call it “resources invested in material inventory.” Doesn’t it sound so much better? 😉

The more resources we have in material inventory, the better system we need for keeping track of it all. That’s why we’ve created some great Planning Printables for you! Download these three FREE printables to help keep you organized this July!

This Pheobe’s Flower Box Quilt Block Calendar inspired from the quilt pattern in BLOCK Magazine Volume 2 Issue 4 will look adorable on the wall next to your sewing machine!

Have some UFO’s you plan to finish this month? Stay on track with this Weekly To Do List! It’s great for keeping track of non-quilty tasks as well!

As quilters, sometimes fabric speaks to us and we’ve just gotta have it! The only problem is, by the time we get around to using it, we often forget what pattern we had in mind for it. Download this handy dandy list to help you keep track of all that fabric and what you want to make with it!

We hope you enjoy these free Planning Printables for the month of July. Be sure to share any projects you make with us on social media using #msqcshowandtell and check back next month for some more printable fun! 🙂

June 2016 Planning Printables!

June 2016 Planning Printables!

May has come and gone and so has the beginning of Spring. Is it just me or does time seem to fly by when the weather is nice? That means that the season of Spring Cleaning is almost gone, but I’m not about to give up on getting organized. Especially when it comes to my sewing space and fabric stash! They’re always a work in progress (like mos of my quilts). Luckily these Free MSQC Planning Printables make getting organized easy and cute!

Count down the number of days you have left to sew in June with this Monthly Calendar. It looks adorable hanging on the wall too!

Stay on task with this Weekly To-Do list. It’s great for quilting projects and anything else you have going on that week!

Finally, browse through that stash (or purchase new fabric) for your future projects. This list is great for remembering what you want to use certain fabrics for!
