Details, Details!

My very dear friend Ilse has loaned me back the quilt I gave her this past March. This allowed me to put one more quilt into this weekend's quilt show for the Belknap Mill Quilter's Guild in Laconia, New Hampshire. The BMQG had put out a call to all members to please send in more quilt registrations for the show, so this was perfect! Yesterday I safety pinned on a sleeve to the top of the flannel backing.

The sleeve doesn't match the quilt, but it doesn't matter. Also, this quilt had been given to Ilse and her husband, Alfred, in such a big hurry that I never had gotten a label on it. This has been the perfect time to correct that omission. Usually, I make the labels with plain black ink with Printed Treasures from Fons & Porter. That stuff is so expensive that I save every scrap of it! I decided to make up a handwritten label on one of the scraps.

My dear neighbors, Ilse and Alfred love this 60X80" snuggle size when their woodstove has burned down a bit and the rooms are cold in the winter. That's pretty soon, so I'd better get it right back to them after the show!

Those string quilts are so effective. I'm making one (very slowly). It just cracks me up to see the pics of you laying out quilt blocks on the driveway. I don't have open floor space either, and no driveway. The parking lot of my apartment building is part dirt so no help there.
