Some labels and the next projects on the go...
I am at a strange place with my quilting projects. The only thing on the go is the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along. I have been rattling around, staring at fabric, flipping through magazines, and snooping through blogs for inspiration. I am a bit obsessed with the wonky points on the Card Tricks quilt so being a complete sucker for punishment, I am going to start another one. The aim is for no wonky points. We will see how that goes! I am going to use a stack of lovely romantic florals that I bought at the "by the pound sale" this past spring. Even Husband had to admit that this is my kind of fabric. I have been busy today pressing the squares and cutting down the fabric to charm square size. Lots of cutting.
The next thing on the go will be a vintage sheet quilt for Daughter to drag around camping with her. I have a stack of sheets pulled with that in mind but have yet to have a thought on what this will look like. More stewing required.
The other day I made more labels. I took something quite familiar. Used this tutorial and made these.
Recycling at its finest. Moda uses lovely twill tape to wrap their jelly rolls. I have saved it without a particular use in mind until this... and I am quite happy to reuse it as a label.
