Over the weekend I've been busy putting the finishing touches to my United Stitches quilt, that was designed by Rosalie Dekker Designs. Once I'd collected my quilt from the longarm quilter, I needed to make a label to stitch on the back. I drew a simple shape and made a paper template. I added a few words saying who had stitched (me of course) and the incredible quilter (the absolutely amazing Janette at J-Quilts!). The embroidery was completed with Cosmo threads. The design was then trimmed to shape...
...I really do LOVE stripey bindings, and this one is made with Chirpy Lola fabric (this pretty fabric collection is also designed by Rosalie Dekker Designs, and the border/binding pack was bought online from Under The Mulberry Tree in Australia). Once the folded edge of the binding had been turned over to the back of the quilt, covering all the raw edges, it was hand stitched into place. The final flourish was the quilt label, which was appliqued into place.
