A Quilt Label

One of my UFOs (unfinished objects) is a quilt I made back in 2005. 

It is going to be gifted, but needs a label and a hanging sleeve.

Tonight, I finished the label. This is how it looked before adding the recipient's name.

Sometime prior to 2005, I purchased this little book at The Stitchin' Post in Sisters, Oregon. Make Your Own Quilt Labels: Volume 4 was written by Kim Churbuck. It contains several darling sketches and easy to follow instructions.

Now, I just need to sew this and the hanging sleeve onto the quilt. (I was a complete novice when I made the quilt this will be added to. It became a UFO when I realized it needed a hanging sleeve and learned that should have been sewn on with the binding... Wish me luck!)

Thank you for visiting!

This is day 15 of the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge. You may find more details and other participating blogs here.

I'm going to look for that book. A handmade label is the perfect touch to a handmade quilt.

Lovely hand crafted label for a special hand crafted quilt. Congratulations on yet another finish. <3

many of my quilts have a hanging sleeve that is NOT stitch on with the binding. My sleeves work just as well, so don't worry!
Pretty label.

Oh oh - I didn't realize that the sleeves should be attached with the binding either. Does this mean the quilt police are lurking, just waiting to pounce?

It' a darling label, and I have that book, too! I will tell you a secret. I have NEVER sewn a hanging sleeve in with the binding. =)

This is so very pretty. Now I have to look up what a hanging sleeve is :)
