Sunday sewing...


Class went well yesterday, I think, and I will post pictures next week of some of the blocks/quilts. Most of them got 1 - 2 blocks finished, which was good considering most of them hadn't done paper piecing before. We meet again next Saturday so that gives them a chance to work on more blocks or not, depending on how much time they have.

I finished quilting my great-niece's quilt this morning...you might remember seeing it when I was working on it. I want to make a label for it. I think I have seen some online. If you have any suggestions of places to look, let me know. I'm not very good at making labels for quilts...I know I should, but don't usually. I do try to sign and date each one, and attach labels occasionally, when it is for family or special occasions.
This is the back. The pic is a little darker than what it really is. I like this pattern, it is very busy and I like the way it interlocks. On to something else!

The quilt and the quilting are beautiful. Your niece is a lucky girl. I make my labels from a photo of the actual quilt. I add the text onto it in Photoshop, print it onto fabric and then just sew it on - at least that way I don't get the labels onto the wrong quilt!

I don't label every quilt but have done machine embroidered ones on 2 quilts and computer printed on printer fabric for quite a few. I also just sign the back of the quilt with a permanent black marker if it will show up. I know some people use fusible bond to attach them.

I love the quilt!

The quilt is beautiful. For labels I use Microsoft Word and print it on printer fabric. I always test-print on paper first, just in case of spelling errors or it's not centered. Then I use some Do-sew and cut it to the same size as the label and sew it on to the front, slice the Do-sew and turn it right side out. This makes it easier for me to sew the label on to the back of a quilt. Before I used to print what I wanted the label to say on paper and then use a light box and pigma pens to trace over the letters and then sew it on. I find printing on to fabric saves me a whole lot of time.

Oh the quilt is beautiful! I don't like making labels for quilts but I don't mind writing on the back with a pigma pen. Strange, I know.

Jean the quilting on this quilt is spectacular. You did a beautiful job and I am sure your niece will love it.

Your neice will love this quilt. Beautiful. I am not very good at putting lables on my quilts, I just don't think about I guess.

I also use printer-friendly fabric (one brand is Printed Treasures) and design a label in Word. I try to add a simple clip-art picture that relates to the pattern, plus details like my name and date. I make batches of labels, usually with my mom, so that we use a whole sheet of printer fabric since the sheets can only go through the printer once. You don't want to make a 3x5 label and waste the rest of the 8.5x11 paper.
