UFO #5 is up!

The first of the month brings the next assignment in my UFO list from All People Quilt.   It’s not a hard one, and that’s good on this month of 29 days.  For me, it is the labeling project for a few quilts that were finished in 2015.  For now, it will have to wait until we return home, as we are relaxing in Maine.   None of the equipment is with me, but I can begin planning.

How do I do my labels?

Generally, I follow a few rules:

  1. Include my name, location, dates to make the quilt (always rought estimate), techniques used (hand or machine piece, appliqué, hand or machine quilted, etc.) and pattern name/author.
  2. Put all this into a word processing document to get them text centered
  3. Think about including an image from the front of the quilt (I’ll post some examples)
  4. Draw out anything I am going to use to scale
  5. Prepare label – usually a light colored fabric – and frame/bind  the label so it can be sewn on the quilt easily
  6. Iron freezer paper with lines drawn with a Sharpie.
  7. Write out the label with Pigma pens

When I am nearer my quilts, I’ll do a little tutorial with some pictures.  Like many quilters, I often don’t label unless I am giving the quilt away or putting it in a show.  This stops now!
