We all know we should label our quilts, don't we? I'm a great one for preaching it, but I don't always follow my own advice. However, I ALWAYS make a label for a quilt that is a gift. This is the label for a quilt I made for my niece, Stephy, who is getting married outdoors in a field of wild daisies in southwest Montana this weekend.

The frame around the words is from Kim Churbuck's book, Make Your Own Quilt Labels, Volume II. (Of course, the words are from the Bible....) Kim has several wonderful books that make creating quilt labels FUN. I hope your local quilt shop carries them, but if not, give us a call, we can send you one. Her books are inexpensive, and loaded with designs for any and all occasions....holiday, baby, outdoors, sports, you name it. Plus, I've traced her designs for embroidery, and punchneedle. (She also makes punchneedle patterns.)
