Did you guess which quilt my label was for? I always like to make my own labels for my special quilts, and this one was no exception! Hand embroidered with Valdani embroidery threads (these have a lovely soft variegation) and embellished with some applique. This label was made using some sew-in interfacing, stitched all the way around the outside edges, the curves clipped. Then a small slit was made in the interfacing and the label turned the right way through. A good press, and it is ready to be hand appliqued onto the back of the quilt...
...I machined the lower edge of the label 1/4" from the edge of the quilt, so the binding covers that part. Then the remainder of the label is hand stitched into place, taking care not to stitch all the way through the quilt. I'm really pleased with this label - although it will be hidden when it's hanging up, it will be a reminder of all the hard work that went into making this beautiful quilt.
