Quilt Label

Remember a while back I was making these little blue hexagon flowers? They were actually for the border of a large quilt label for a group quilt. This is the second time I’ve used that setting for a group quilt label, made with the shapes in the Inklingo .50″ hexagon collection. It’s the perfect size – gives one loads and loads of room to write in all the names of the participants in a group quilt.

The finished label. What I learned this time around is to use a batik when writing out lots of names. It was much easier to write on the batik than on regular quilting cotton. That is one lesson that will stay with me for future labels. As the label was being sewn on a quilt that had a dark blue batik backing, I lined it with plain white muslin. That worked like a charm. The backing didn’t shadow through at all.

Today’s Blogathon Canada hosts are both from the Yukon Territory – Quilting Under the Midnight Sun and Caribou Crossing Chronicles with lists of more blogs to discover and some great giveaways.

Seems Baxter and his pals were out at o’dark-thirty taking advantage of the Black Friday sales at the pet store. By the looks of that line-up, they must have been the first in and out of the store.

He was looking up at a toy I was holding above the camera as Mr. Q.O. took this photo.

Don’t forget to come back tomorrow when I will be one of the Ontario blog hosts and have a great giveaway sponsored by Sew Sisters!

  1. Nifty idea. I love those tiny .5″ hexies. When my sewing circle friends see me stitching these tiny flowers they think I’m crazy… then they try it for themselves and change their minds. lol.
    Your label is gorgeous!
