QuiltAlbum Giveaway

I had the opportunity to evaluate QuiltAlbum software and would like to share my thoughts with you.


How many quilts have you made in your years of quilting...... any idea?  I know I don't have a clue how many I have made.
When I first started I bought several albums and started strong taking pictures, printing them and putting all the information in the album.  Then I got  busy making quilts and I stopped documenting them.
Now I know the importance of making labels for your quilts but I have to admit I don't always get one made for every quilt.

Some of the first questions people ask when looking at your quilts are.... What pattern did you use, When did you make it and What fabric is that?  I never seem to remember and the more time passes the less I remember.
Well, QuiltAlbum is an electronic scrap book.  Using this software you can upload pictures of your quilts or other projects and record all the little details that might slip your mind later.
Then you can print the page to put in your quilt album or even make a label.
You can even go a step further and make note cards or  business cards with pictures of your quilts on them.
It's very easy to use.  Once it's downloaded on your computer......You upload a photo of your quilt and  fill in the fields with all the information about your quilt.  It's that simple!


You can download the program for $29.95-but if you use the discount code ARL-AK you save $5 at checkout.  Just click on the words  QuiltAlbum and it will take you to their site to read more about the program or to order your copy.
I have been using QuiltAlbum for a couple of weeks now and am really pleased with how it works.  It is a great way to document the details about your quilts and is very easy to use.

Would you like to win a copy of QuiltAlbum?
As a thank you to my readers, the people at QuiltAlbum are giving away a copy of the program to one of you.  Just leave a comment below to be entered.  If you have a blog and post about the giveaway let me know and you'll get another entry.
Please make sure you leave me a way to contact you if you win.
I'll use the random Number Generator to choose a winner.
This giveaway will be open until 11-15-11.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED.

Oh yes, yes--I'd love to win a copy! I could use some organization and something to help me remember the important information about my quilts! Thanks for the chance!

Sue in Scottsdale, AZ said...

Yes, I would love to win a copy. I can't remember when I made half of my quilts and the other half I can't remember what the pattern was or what quilting was done on it.

Julee said...

Would also love to win a copy of this....few years ago I did go back and try to remember to document everything on each quilt and that was hard. Also have tried to put a label on all of them, I'm sure this program would make it easier.
Thanks for the giveaway.

I would love to have a copy! I have heard wonderful things about it....I tried scrapbooking my quilts along with some fabric snippets and photos, but the project stalled out after the first quilt or two.

This would be much easier!

Thanks,

Bari Berger

ferne said...

That sounds like a great way to document your quilting. I was just thinking of all the quilts I have actually finished this year just because I learned how to free motion quilt. Documenting them would be a great idea!

Lori said...

A great idea. I often go digging through my blog for a picture/date etc.

Diane said...

This sounds like something every quilter should have. I do make labels for all of my quilts, but after some time passes......it is just not enough information. I would love to be the winner of your drawing and get some organization going with my quilt information.

How interesting...an electronic journal is something new to me. Thank you sew much for offering this unique prize.

Dlauten said...

I started out with a nice journal of each quilt, then just a page in a notebook for each one. Now each finish is a crossed off entry on my to-do list. I think I really need something like QuiltAlbum!

Gayle said...

This Quilt Album is a great idea and I would like to be the winner. Thanks for having this giveaway.

JoyceLM said...

I'd love to win a copy of this software. Thanks for the opportunity.

Pam said...

I would love to have this. I tried the photos in an album-bust. I tried saving them on the computer-bust. I tried a blog to save pics of my quilts-bust. This just may be the ticket.

I think it would be great to win a copy of this. I've tried to take pictures as I go now that I have a digital camera, but it is hard to remember everything about a quilt. This might help. Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

Caeli said...

I'd love to win this. I try and take pictures, but I'm not so good at documenting them!

Anonymous said...

I would love to own this. I have wanted to get more organized with documenting the quilts I have made and this looks like it would do the trick!

Thanks for the opportunity!

I really need to win this. I have a terrible time trying to organize and document my quilts I complete. I have random pictures floating around my hard drive and need someway to get them together. Thank you so much for a chance to win.

Jody said...

What a fabulous tool! I have a handwritten list (on notebook paper) of my completed quilts, but no additional info, and the photos are all over. this sounds great. (If I don't win, I'll have to go purchase it!)

Diana said...

Well, I have read some of the comments on this product and it seems we all would love to win it. To be able to orginize my quilts and have all the informations with them, would be so wonderful. Thanks for the chance to win. Diana!
Please contact me at curtnty@sympatico.ca when I win, lol:

Sherri (speedyqltr) in Ontario, Canada said...

I would love to win a copy of this program! The first several quilts I made (all baby quilts) I gave to the new owners before taking pictures or making labels or anything ,and now I have no idea where they are so that I can get that information from them.

This would be awesome to have so that I could keep everything organized and something to "show and tell" when someone asks me about my quilting and what I've made.......also for future generations to looks at as well.

THanks for offering this! Sherri

Roberta said...

Thanks so much for blogging about the Quilt Album. I get busy and forget to even photograph a quilt sometimes and most of them are given away or sold. I have also been horrible about labeling, but I would love to get better. Thanks for the chance to win a copy! Roberta

Wendy B said...

What a fab idea!!!! I'm a shocker when it comes to recording the details of the things I've made....that's why I started blogging but.....now it's become sharing and not recording so much! Thanks for the chance to win a copy...I found out about you from Sew Many Ways.

Dorian Goodyk said...

What a great idea. This isn't something I've ever seen before. Thanks for making me aware of it and having this contest!!

Anonymous said...

Penny Verdigan. This looks like something that would be really nice to have I have made and gave away quilts, I have pictures of them on the computer but never printed them out would probably do it with a Quilt Album program. penelopea2002@yahoo.com

Rughooker said...

Sounds like it would work with hooked rugs, too, but I'm such a slow hooker I pretty well have my rugs permanently memorized before I finish them - however, I have a terrible time making labels.

Bonnie said...

Hum, lots of my friends want to win this too. Bummer. It would be great to see if this actually WOULD help me keep track. I know I photograph all the quilts but heaven knows where they go from there! Sigh.

If I don't win I may ask for it for Christmas.

I could really use more organizational aids! It's a great idea...

I would love to have a way to document my quilts on the computer. Thanks for the review and the opportunity.

Marj said...

I deeply regret not having kept a record of the many quilts I have made over the years. I'll be at Road to CA in Jan and will check out QuiltAlbum in person. Unless of course I win it first! lol marj @ chartermi.net

Deb said...

I would love to win a copy of Quilt Album! With 9 grandchildren, I've made a bunch of quilts and tried to keep pictures and notes, but (sigh) didn't always. This would be a great additional tool in my sewing room!

Lynn said...

What a great idea! I have forgotten many of the quilts I've made, and I really don't want to scrapbook.

Anonymous said...

I would love to have the Quilt Album software. I haven't made too many quilts yet as I am new at quilting, and so I can remember most of the information but not all.

Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Wow, I would love to win this software! Looks like it would be great for documenting quilts. I'm putting a link on my page about your giveaway also. http://quiltingbyjudith.blogspot.com

Becky said...

The more that I read about this software, the more I want to give it a try:)

Peg said...

This software is a great idea...I have pictures
all over the place...not organized and I forget
when I made a quilt or what fabric I used...this
would be great to keep track of all the details
and to be able to look back on accomplishments

Beth said...

This program sounds ideal. My attempts to document my quilts went along the same path as yours. Yet, I know it's important, and would love to have a record of the quilts my grandmother made during her lifetime. I can't do that, but I can spare future generations some guesswork. Thanks for the chance to enter.

I saw this program demonstrated at a quilt show and think it is something I could really use. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your great giveaway.

What a neat idea! A quilt treasury. I made a link to my web page - it's just getting started! Lots to learn.

astitch said...

My memory is shocking and for there to be a way to record what I do will certainly help me to recall what, where, why & what I have done. Thank you for the chance to win.

♥Duff said...

wahoo! I'd love a chance to try out this software! I love the idea of digital storage made specifically for quilts. I'm giving away MyMemories digital scrapbook so feel free to sign up for that too! thanks!

Thanks for the chance to win a copy :)

Kathleen C. said...

I've read about this software, and I know that I'd enjoy using it. I've tried to document my quilts with photos and lists in a notebook, but the computer software is the way to go---and I love being organized! Thanks so much. Wish i could spread the word by blogging, but I don't have a blog :).

Nancy Sue said...

Everyone is raving about this :) Thank you for putting this giveaway together! Keeping fingers crossed :)
