Label love

I love labels!

I don't consider a quilt done until it has a label.

That's not to say that they're aren't any quilts around here without labels......I'm not that good...... I just don't consider those quilts done yet. 

I label my quilts so I can remember when I made them........because sometimes I forget.

Well, maybe I label them so my friends and relatives will have information about my quilts many years down the road to preserve their history. 

That sounds better.  I'll go with that reason. 

Knowing that I'm always on the search for labels, my friend JoAnne from the The Patriotic Quilter was sweet enough to send me this amazing package of labels that she collected while attending a quilt show.

I was so thrilled to receive them!  Thank you so much JoAnne!!!

Then on top of that, she was sweet enough to text me recently and ask if I had any of the new Sweetwater labels in my collection, as she was in a quilt shop looking at a panel of them.

How sweet is that? So thoughtful of her!

It certainly brightened my day to know she thought of me.

Thanks again JoAnne!

Blog friends are amazing!

After I'm done writing this, I'm going to get finish up my mini Swoon for the parade next week.

What pattern are you making for the parade, if you're joining in this month? 

The month of April certainly got away from me. I can't believe this is my first April post. "Yikes!"

Next thing we know it'll be summer!

I'm terrible at labeling, but am trying to be better.

Aren't blogging friends great?

About the only thing I don't add labels to are charity quilts. Sometimes if I have a lite backing on a mini, I will just sign and date with a pigma pen.

I'm ashamed to say I haven't labeled any of my quilts.
I've thought about it - just have not executed.

I have so many quilts that need labels! I do take a photo of each one and have a scrapbook (actually two now) with photos of the quilt and the date I finished it.

That's an awesome assortment! You will be able to pick the perfect one for each quilt.

I know it's important, but it's not my favorite part. I've been trying to be diligent about it though. And I agree that blog friends are amazing. JoAnne is particularly sweet!

After reading the Elm Creek novels I realised the importance of labels but sadly very few of my quilts have them. It is a bit worrying as the only place I record what I have made and when is on my blog. We all know how reliable technology can be! It was so nice of your friend to send you such a beautiful array of labels.

I try to label my quilts now, But I do forget from time to time. You've got a nice pile of labels there. :-)

Goodness, I somehow missed seeing this post! Maybe I was traveling? At any rate, you are so sweet.
