I love making personalised labels for my quilts. This label is for my Fernhill quilt - pattern by Lynette Anderson Designs - I played around with a few images from Lynette's original pattern and added my own words. Once I was happy with the layout, I wrote over the pencil lines with a very fine Sharpie pen...
...this quilt was hand embroidered using Weeks Dye Works embroidery threads, and I used some of the left over threads to embroider the label...
...once the stitching was finished, it was pressed on the wrong side (this prevents the stitches from being flattened) and the label was appliqued by hand onto the back of the quilt. I just need to add a hanging sleeve, and it will be ready to display.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
