Tool Tuesday | The Quilter’s Planner 2018

The Quilter's Planner | Organizer for Quilters | Designed by Stephanie Palmer | Shannon Fraser Designs

I received some happy mail yesterday!

Which totally changed the course of my day and had me focusing on ALL things organization.

You’re probably thinking that’s a really boring way to spend the day. But with all the fun eye candy and inspiration strewn throughout the planner, it was a totally fun experience!

Plus, I threw in some washi tape and dipped into the stickers designed by Alison Glass. These are SO pretty. 

Can anything be bad when washi tape and stickers are involved?!

You’ll remember I picked up the 2017 Quilter’s Planner, designed by Stephanie Palmer of Late Night Quilter, last year and the stickers were a fav of mine then too. But this year they’re even glossier – who doesn’t like a little gloss factor?!

Even more inspiring is the accompanying The Quilter’s Planner Magazine that arrives with your 2018 Quilter’s Planner. This glossy spread includes 14 quilt patterns designed by some of the top artists in our industry, including:

Amy Barickman | Indygo Junction 
Cheryl Brickey | Meadow Mist Designs 
Justin Stafford | Keaton Quilts 
Karen Lewis | Karen Lewis Textile 
Karin Jordan | Karin Jordan Studio 
Kenna Ogg | Madison Cottage Design 
Leanne Parsons | Devoted Quilter 
Mathew Boudreaux | Mister Domestic 
Natalia Bonner | Piece & Quilt 
Paige Alexander | Quilted Blooms 
Sharon Holland | Sharon Holland Designs 
Yvonne Fuchs | Quilting Jet Girl 
Nicole Young | Lillyella & Sarah Thomas | Saridittty 

I love that each pattern comes with a short story of the inspiration behind the design.

And throughout you see the beautiful photography of Kitty Wilkin from Night Quilter.

It’s literally inspiration upon layer of inspiration.

AND then there’s the actual planner – ha!

The Quilters' Planner | Organization for Quilters | Shannon Fraser Designs

Not only is there a monthly spread, but you can capture your daily appointments, your daily top 3 tasks, and sections for weekly personal and quilting to-do lists.

There’s even a weekly section for your shopping list – you know, to capture the fabric and notions you’ll need for your ongoing projects. Here's a list of fabric shopping resources in case you need some new places to score textiles. Priorities, am I right?!


A new addition this year is the daily Habit Tracker. I’m still mulling what I want to track in this section, but I can see it being super handy.

Similar to last year’s edition, there’s still the Projects section to keep track of all your WIP (that stands for “work in progress” for any non-quilters popping in 😉), space to plan your designs and a overview of all your important dates and deadlines for the year. The handy Reference Section is also at the back of the planner and now includes a personal measurement chart; which seems like ideal timing considering I have garment sewing on my to-make list. Hopefully 2018 is the year that finally happens 😉

If you’re a bee block & swap lover, there’s even a tracker dedicated to staying on top of those projects.

And, did I mention the pretty glossy stickers?! I’m particularly loving the birds.

The Quilter's Planner 2018 Combo - Planner, Magazine and Mini Planner available at the Fat Quarter Shop

Fat Quarter Shop still has The Quilter’s Planner + Mini Planner combo in stock so, if you’re looking to make 2018 the year you get organized, then wait no longer, my friend. These pretties are selling out quickly and you don’t want to be me circa 2016 when I went to buy one and they were ALL sold out

Happy quilty organization!
