... while waiting for the mailman, I got out some 6 X 6 scrap booking papers.
I cut the pieces to make a paper quilt block.
Today's block for "My Favorite Block Quilt Along" is a Scrappy Churn Dash Block. I cut my pieces (minus the seam allowances), so that I would have a 6 inch block for the front of my quilt binder.
You may have noticed that I picked a 5th print as I needed another color for the scrappy look!
I printed the title for the top of the page
and the logo button for the bottom right part of the page.
Each time there is a new block, I print the instructions --- usually in a draft print (uses less ink). Then I three hole punch and add them to the binder.
I also printed the photo of my fabrics in draft from my blog --- just for the memory when I look back at this binder years from now.
If you are doing the My Favorite Block Quilt Along, please do not think you need a binder, just because I have one. But it does keep me organized. I need to have a place to put the instructions or I will loose them!
Just for fun!

Love the idea - great for any project that you are following on the inter-net. I tend to write notes, make copies, stick stuff everywhere and then not know where it is - This is great!!!
Love your paper block - I collect pretty scrapbook papers but rarely use them so this would be perfect.
great job on the cover!! Love it!
I have a binder too, and I added some plastic envelope pages (not sure what they are really called) but I use them to keep bits of pattern/templates or smaller items organized with the pattern pages.
Inspiring as usual Marcia. Can I still get in on this project??
I have binders for everything, but I never even thought of doing something like this. What fun! Thanks for sharing!
Great idea and beautifully made! I used to make binders for everything. I should make the same as you. x Teje
