Helen bought me this Cath Kidston button tin and the cute buttons to put in it as a thank you.
I was also pleased with the label. I read a tip in a book that suggested you print the quilt label words on the computer, choosing a font to match the quilt design, then hold a piece of pale fabric or calico on top of the print up at the window and trace the wording through with an indelible pen, then sew onto the quilt back. I used the pale cream fabric with anchors on it. Quick, easy and very effective. The next project has already started. I am making the cushions from Rosalie Quinlan's Gift book. This is my first attempt at needle turn appliqué. I wanted some hand sewing to take away on holiday. I've just got to leave it alone until the packing is finished.
Sometimes blogger just gets the better of me. Last night it wouldn't down load photos or save the text. Tonight we have this underlined text. Don't know where that came from. Sorry.
