Little Grace's 100 Wishes Quilt is complete. She is a sweet little 4-year old who will soon be snuggling with her very own twin-size quilt. Each square is 8".
Of course we had to make a custom label for the little one. I must say the hand embroidery has greatly improved. I really enjoy it now and love new challenges for different stitches and even cursive fonts.
I got new labels! Love them. I actually ordered two sets. The navy blue (above) I ordered from a lovely Etsy seller, The Dancing Needle. I wasn't sure about fonts and colors and such so I also ordered from Namemaker (pink ones below). They both come to about $1/label after shipping. Of course nothing beats Tracy's personal service and no minimum order. For example, I just ordered 5 of the navy ones just to see what they were like. Namemaker is a huge company and I think I have about 35 of the pinks to use.
Which is fine because I like them. But if I didn't that would be bad.
I just like to give ya the low-down because it took me about a gazillion years to settle on these heavy decisions. I'm very indecisive.
Melodie's quilt is also coming along nicely. The quilt top is done. I love the applique here. I just ordered the flannel backing and so excited to put it all together.
Sorry for the yucko pictures. Dropping major hints on a new camera for my upcoming birthday. Husband are you reading this?
Next on the to-do list: three pillows and a boy quilt of bicycles! Sooo excited as I have wanted this fabric for Nino's quilt for quite some time. And now I have an excuse to buy it. Hooray!
Enjoy these lovely, lovely end-of-summer days. Say yes to going outside even if it totally messes up your schedule. You won't regret it. Just sayin'.
