HELLO MY DEAR FRIENDS! I hope you are having a wonderful time and enjoying your summer! We have hot weather but lovely wind! Perfect Sunday to relax a little bit and spend some time with sewing!
I have been following with a great interest Rebecca’s Quilting Class! Rebecca is writing a beautiful blog ‘Chasing Cottons’! It’s worth of visit because she makes really beautiful quilts! Rebecca has made every quilt lesson really carefully and well and I have learnt a lot from her and the other bloggers who have visited the class. Last Wednesday the lesson was about labelling our quilts. It made me think about my labels …
This is the back of my latest quilt. It’s a small wall hanging quilt and I haven’t even showed this to you yet … and still you need to wait an other post …
In this quilt I remembered to make the label before quilting the front and back together, so it was much easier to do it.
Thinking of the labels and my quilts I realized that some of them doesn’t have any label – like ‘Finnish Forest’. I am thinking to make a tree, write on it and sew it on the back side of this quilt.
Often some things are just waiting and waiting to be done. The label for ‘Nero’s Garden’ was one of these. I had even cut the piece of fabric for that label and still it was missing. But now finally it’s done …
First quilts I have made are summer quilts. Because we have so hot summer, I made two quilts without wadding. All the solid colour fabrics are from shirts (mine, my hb’s and my father’s) and the ‘painted’ fabric has been my mother’s table cloth.
These quilts don’t have any label – I have just stitched a signature. I think I should make a label for these, too.
That dark colour is blue (not black) and the binding is blue-white checked. These quilts have very simple pattern but I like them. The pink one is mine and this orange is my hb’s. When I started to make these I was cutting lots of scuares and finally there were many of them left – just what I needed to make matching pillow cases!
The front of the pillow has four house blocks. I think these were my first houses and now they look very simple but it was fun to make them! And the back of the pillow has squares. I named these pillows ‘Houses in the Rose garden’.
So this was my ‘quilt with label story’ for the moment. I go to add my link in Rebecca’s post – you can visit there and find out other great ways to label your quilts!
Today I have fishes on my sewing table … birds are finnished for the moment but I think there are more birds coming …
Thank you for all your sweet comments and I’m happy that you told me your experiences with Cicadas = Nero’s small monsters = τζιτζικας! Even I speak Greek, I had wrote ‘tzitzikas’ wrongly and that’s why I couldn’t find information in English.
I wish you the best summer weather and have a wonderful time!!!
