Sneak Peak


I got my quilt back from the quilter a couple of weeks ago and finally got a chance to get it trimmed. This weekend I'll make binding and get it attached!! Whoop! Whoop!
FYI, It is the Buhl Bushong quilt offered as a BOM from the Virginia Quilt Museum. 

After trashing a printer I'm afraid to try it again to make my quilt label. I do really need a better pen for labels. I'm using a Micron5 in black. Do you have any better recommendations?
Here's a peak into my latest Instagram.
Speaking of Instagram, I'll be taking over All People Quilt instagram account this weekend, starting today! I was honored to have a quilt published in the latest issue. Check it out HERE! Thanks!

I'm going to have a giveaway for everyone who has entered their 50 Shades of Brown quilt on the link party. I have never figured out how to reopen a closed party so send me a photo at ldej@crestviewcable.com and I'll add it and you'll be eligible for the drawing! Thank you to all who sewed along!! I was happy so many of you joined in!!
Make it a great weekend! Much Love

  1. Oh yay! I did get my 50 shades done but was too late for the party. I am at work right now and won't be able to get a picture to you until tonight. Is that going to be too late?

  3. Beautiful sneak peek! I've been using Zig Millennium Collection pens for my handwritten labels and have found them to be easier to write on the fabric compared with Micron. I iron my label fabric onto freezer paper before writing and heat set afterward. So far the colors I've used have held up through several washings. I do like the micron pens for making the tiny match dots on the reverse of small piecing segments like the sunflower blocks I'm working on currently.

  6. Your quilt is absolutely beautiful. To make my labels I iron a piece of plain white cotton onto some freezer paper then write on it with a water and fade proof uni pen.

  8. Your quilt is so beautiful and I can see Sharon did a fantastic job of quilting it!Looking forward to seeing the end result with the binding on it! As far as labels go, for the last 13 years,I have been very successful with the inkjet printer, using special muslin to print my labels. I do like the personal handwritten ones you have shown here on your blog!

  9. Oooo that is a stunner, even in just the sneak peek. Love that colorful little bird. I use a pen called "Identipen" that I've had for years and years, and it just never has run out. Micron is my backup.
