Project Tracker | Free Printable!

As 2019 wraps up and we head into a new decade (what?!), it is time to take inventory of your WIPs (works in progress) and make a plan to get them finished! Don’t worry, I’m here to help you! I’ve created a FREE printable project tracker for you to assess the state of your current WIPs and make a plan!

I’ve personally used this tracker all of 2019 and found it extremely useful. Not only does it allow you to assess what step all of your WIPs are at, but it also acts as a finished project tracker. I’ve been able to keep track of the number of quilts I’ve made throughout the year by using this free printable! And now, at as we near the end of the year, it is fun to look back and see all that I’ve accomplished. I’ve got a few more quilts I’d like to wrap up before 2020 hits us, but I’ll be sure to make a roundup post for the 35+ quilts I’ve completed this year.

Jason thought it would be funny to add numbers next to all of the lines. (I think he thinks my WIPs have gotten out of hand!)

How I personally use this tracker:

  • As soon as I have a pattern and fabric pull in mind, I write it into the project tracker worksheet
  • I make sure to cross off the steps as I complete them. I personally love lists so this part is super gratifying.
  • When a quilt is completed, I document the finished date and highlight the project with a highlighter. This allows me to quickly scan unfinished projects.
  • Usually as we near the end of the year, I assess my WIPs and see which ones are nearest to completion that I can knock out really quickly!

Let’s all get motivated to finish those WIPs! Download the free quilt project tracker!

  1. Thank you for this. It is the motivation I needed to start looking at my projects. I have seen other printable lists but this one is much more me and easy to follow and add to when I get something done. 🙂

  2. Thanks so much for offering this handy form. I used to make forms in my job, one thing I really enjoyed. But now I’m retired I’m finding I need those lists to keep me on track..BEST Wishes for 2020 and may you find you chart full of check marks.

  3. Love this idea!! I also love checking items off a list. Frankly I have a bin of projects/kits that I have never started and recently realized I had lost track of 🙄 This form would help keep projects on my radar!! Thank you so much for creating and sharing !!

    1. I also love checking items off a list! And yes, having them all listed helps when you want to start a new project. It keeps all of those fabric pulls and kits top of mind!

  4. Thank you! I love that I can add it into my daily planner! It’s perfect to keep me on track and also feel productive. 🙂

  5. Thank you so much for the quilting project tracker. I like the how one can see the progress of the projects.

  6. Slowly, slo-o-o-o-wly, I’ve been getting organized. Sorting things into labelled drawers and totes, being honest with myself that I just won’t get to some great crafting projects and passing them on, putting WIPs and PHDs into bags or totes. This year I promised myself I would actually get around to clearing those WIPs and PHDs. The universe obviously thinks this is a great idea, because it promptly put you in my inbox! LOL

    So, thank you for this printable, and I hope to have as many checks on my 2020 sheet as you have on your 2019! Ok, who am I kidding! I don’t think I’ll get 35 quilts done this year. But maybe 10 or 12. 😉

    1. I’m a firm believer of working at your own pace! You’ll feel much more in control of those WIPs once you’ve got them all listed on a sheet. I’m glad I could help!

  7. Thanks, this looks really useful. I’m in the UK in self-isolation at the moment so with plenty of quilting time. Yay

  8. I love this and can’t wait to get all mine organized and placed on the sheet. Instead of checking items off, I’m gong to use the boxes to date when things get done. That will help me see how long it takes to actually complete a project. Thanks for the printable.

  9. Thank you for the free Works in Progress pdf and the summer quilt pattern. I look forward to visiting you site and shop again. I sew as a hobby to make gifts for myself, family, and friends. Maybe someday my articles will appear professional enough to sell. In the meantime, thank you for sharing, and I did take note of your recipe mention and understand. I like to bake, and have been as successful as desired to do that for an income, just to see if I could. : ) I made about $200.00, and it was fun. Thanks again for sharing.
    As soon as I can afford the padding for the tote bag I would like to try that project from your shop. Sincerely, Irma H.

  10. Thank you for the free download. I’ve managed to sort my fabric stash out, so coming across this is perfect timing……love your poodle, I’m biased as I also have an apricot mini poo called Ollie, they are amazing dogs x

    1. I’m 100% biased towards poodles, I think they’re absolutely the best! Great job sorting your fabric stash, that’s still on my to-do list 😉

  11. HI, thank you for this tracker! I printed and filled it out last year and high hopes for completing the list by Labor Day… only some of the projects got done, but I made 500+ masks instead.. so all good.. I’m glad you still have it available… starting over, lol and I just downloaded your free “Sky Full” pattern,,, such a great idea! Thanks again!
