My Crafty Friend, Carol, had her quilt last year, but when I explained that I had sussed the label conundrum, she returned the quilt so that I could add a label...so here is the quilt....
...and the label.....
I've also FINALLY finished my cousins Arsenal Quilt, I told you about it here and after the pining marathon and then the hours watching TV and quilting it with buttons, I reached the point of binding.
I had previously cut the binding but wished I had waited and cut it wider to cover the variation in the yarn squares (some had been sewn more tightly than others).
No matter, I simply unfolded it and used it like bias tape by sewing a single edge to the edge of my quilt with an almost 1cm seam allowance to cover all the ins and outs. Once I'd sewn all round I turned it to the back and hand stitched the binding down as usual. This also took hours!
But I think the result along with the label was well worth investing the time and I hope my cousin likes it!
What do you think?
Huge isn't it!?
This picture shows the button quilting, binding and homemade label!
More makes coming soon, until then, take care
