Charity quilt labels
My labels box was seriously depleted. Yes. I was down to one!!! One.
So, it's time to make some more.
I wanted to show you my process for making them.
First I choose a piece of white or light colored fabric that is "less than desirable for quilting" for one reason or another.
Secondly, I cut a piece of stabilizer and put them both in the hoop. Secure it tightly.
Thirdly, put it on the embroidery machine and select the pattern from the files.
Then, later...much later, I have 5 labels.
I cut them apart using either my pinking shears or the rotary cutter with a wave blade and put them in the box! I want to have a nice collection before fall comes!
Because each set of 5 takes over an hour to do if there are no stops (and there is always at least one stop to change the bobbin), I have a lot of time invested in each label. Sometimes I run the machine while I'm in the sewing room, but I can push "start" and leave the room.
I can hear with a "beep" if something is wrong.
I put one of these labels on each charity quilt I make.
And now you know!
Have a wonderful day wherever you are reading this!'
