May Finish

The deadline for the Morningstar quilt challenge was today, and I put the last stitch into the binding at 8:00 am. We had a lovely show and tell of fifteen Morningstar quilts at the Tacoma Lakes meeting this morning, and there were a few we hadn't seen before. The ladies all did a great job.

I used the Frisky Feathers pantograph from Willow Leaf for the quilting. Since I hadn't stitched it before, I practiced on a little strippy first. Still have to bind the strippy, and it will become a donation quilt.








I like to play around with my quilt labels, and I get bored pretty quickly with the same ones every time. The other day I happened to see a post on the Selvage Blog about a quilter who used some selvages in her label. I still like my embroidered labels the best, but it did occur to me to use the selvage from the border fabric to bind one edge of the label. I like having both the copyright date and the color dots on this selvage.

Yes, I know tomorrow is May 6--I actually finished a day early. Too late to change it now!
