I like to match my quilt labels to the theme of the front of the quilt, and for this one I decided to use a birdie design from one of Gail Pan's festive books, "Christmas Patchwork Loves Embroidery". Some left over applique shapes that I'd made for the front of the quilt have also been put to good use - they've been appliqued onto the back of the quilt along with some stitchery lables. I traced the words onto the background fabrics, using a lightbox and a very fine Micron Pigma pen. Then I stitched over the lines using the same colour Valdani perle thread that I'd used for the hand embroidery on the front of the quilt.
