finishing touches

My pink quilt is almost finished and if the sun comes out tomorrow I’ll get some photos finally and call it done.  I’ve decided who its to be given to at Christmas so this morning I made a little label for the back.

I hand embroider my quilt labels, even though they look like they might have been done by a 5-year-old, I like how they look.  In my old quilting class the ladies would rush next door to the machine embroidery shop during classes to get their labels made.  My lovely sewing machine does do text in some nice fonts, but something about the hand-stitched letters makes it feels more personal, and more me.
