It got crazy busy towards the end of last week cuz one of our "gal pals" got married on Saturday. It was all very exciting. By Thursday we were all busy either making cupcakes for the reception, one of the gals cut LOTS of vinyl, and then there was this surprise quilt you see below that needed to be finished.
Isn't this just the sweetest quilt ever??? All the colored fabrics are from a 1930's reproduction line. This little surprise for Leslie, was Margie's brain child. Last month four of us got together over at Margie's to make this little sneaky project come together. Then last week Margie quilted it on her Long Arm.
One guess what we were doing Friday night...yep...we did the binding around the edges by hand while watching Jane Eyre (2006 version/THE BEST EVER)!
And because the quilt was SO ultra cute, we had to have an "ultra cute" quilt label. See the package I scanned (above)? I've been dying to try my hand at this product for a long time and now I had the perfect project for it.
So I just typed out this cute label with some of my fun fonts, printed it on the special paper in the kit, ironed it on, and then sewed the pink strips around to give it a border. I LOVE the way it turned out. I blurred out every one's last name for obvious reasons, so if it looks like Clorox spills, it's just my bad photo-editing skills. : ) I got this Avery product at Staples BTW.
Congratulations Leslie. And happy Monday everyone!
