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.
