eventually

In doing the quilt sort and stacking, I ran across several "all but..." quilts--missing bindings, labels, final stitching of sleeves.
On several, I left the corner bindings unsewn so that I could get the label in. So, this has been my spring project. I have been working on about 7 labels.
I am using a package of solids from my mother's stash to make the labels. Made from squares anywhere from 6 1/2 to 8 inches, folded in half on the diagonal. This way there is only one straight applique edge. The other two sides are incorporated into the binding.
Note, I have not written anything on the labels, but they are there.
Another project for another day.

What a clever way to have a little piece of Mom in your quilts! Have to admit that I haven't put a label on in years:-(

This is how I do my labels. That is when I do get around to doing lables.
