With my Vase of Sunflowers quilt nearly finished it was time to add a label. I usually start my labels on the computer so I can mess around with size and font. To write on the fabric pencil the letters on to my fabric and go over with a permanent marker.
For this label, I needed it to be a particular size as you will see in the next photo. And I wanted a bit of art, so I played around with some pre cut scraps and found a pleasing design.
Here is the issue I have on the back of the quilt. Do you see the light area in the middle? Well that was created when I used my embellisher to shade the vase with roving. Would have been nice if I had though of this before I started quilting but no I have to create problems for myself.
The solution: cover with a label. As you can see the label is still a little too small to cover the
Ahhh, that is better....
I finished off the label with a bit of hand embroidery around the flowers and used my embellisher to attach some novelty yarn around the leaves and add a few tendrils.
And here she is (nearly) finished, just a bit of handwork couching to tidy up a border and I want to add a few beads to each of the flowers.
