quilt tag

i am finally done with the final details of this quilt!  here’s the label:

i chose to embroider the label this time.  do you label quilts?  if so, what’s your favorite method?  i chose a font on the computer, printed it off and (sort of) traced it onto a piece of the same fabric that i used on the quilt back.  i started off with a more solid-line embroidery stitch, but it started looking really chunky and convoluted, so i switched to sashiko style embroidery (see note here).  is that traditionally used for lettering?  i have no idea.  but i just love the way it looks.  oh, and my name isn’t blurred out on the actual quilt.

now, i just need to deliver it to my (justifiably) impatient friend….
