Swap Quiltlet Ready to Mail

Here is the finished product! I am rather pleased with it all in all though for some reason the corners of the binding just didn't turn out quite the way I wanted them too. I have not finished the second one for myself but it shouldn't take too long. I think I will embroider the flowers on mine just for a little difference but we shall see what I think when I get to that point. Though, as I think about it, if I want to embroider them it would be smart to do it before I do the quilting - much easier to hide the knots!The label ended up being the scraps I had left over from the borders that I used as part of my backing. It works.Well, for better or worse, this should be in the mail later today. I just hope my swap partner likes it as well as I do!

As I said on flickr, it is nice & I still like the button flowers!

I think it is a great quilt. The button flowers really take it over the edge for me.
How did you make the label though?

Congrat on a nice finished quilt. The colours are really automny and the design very original. Take care.

It was pretty plain before I added the flowers.

The label isn't really a label so much as it is part of the back. I just pieced together the leftover border strips and then pieced the back using the brown. Then I wrote on the lighter strips with a pen. Kind of lazy but it works.

I think it looks great, fabulous feature floral print as well. Thanks for stopping by me, this swap is a great way to find more quilt blogs, Tracey

ps, love the Aunt Jane quote in your sidebar, that's basically the reason I took this quilting up, so I could see something I had achieved out of the day, Tracey

Not Lucy said...

I actually started with the floral and added fabrics from there. I hope to post the second finished one in the next day or so. It is going quite quickly.
