mini patchwork quilt label










Do you label your quilts? Do you like making that extra touch close to the end of the process? Did you know all the quilts I made for years to come, I've only labeled five quilts and one mini quilt!  And you know what? I can't really remember the rest of the quilts, when and where I made them. I had to go back to the old blog posts or flickr to find time frames! Oh, then you know I made the mind that from now on, all the quilts:mini or huge will get a label, so there's a bit of who made it and when made it!

For this quilt label: I used the disappearing ink and free hand writing the receiver's name and my name. For the date, there is just the month and the year; adding flowers pattern around it bring extra textures in the backing, since it is a busy print already.  I am quiet pleased with this free style label and it surely leaves additional personal touch to the quilt!

blog note:
Really, {Thank you} for your sweet comments on the new blog look! It still needs some more work done. I need to find the html coding link again,since I didn't save it from two nights ago when I was reading it. All the top tabs are working now and I will need to write up {about} page soon. I like how clean the blog looks now, but there is always improvements that need to make still!
