12 Days New Block(s) Done

I thought that perhaps I should work on some sewing stuff on Sunday since I had not done anything the rest of the weekend so I decided I should cut out my latest 12 Days of Christmas block and work on it. You may remember that I am making 2 of each block so that when I am finished I will have 2 quilts. One for me and one for LTW. I liked this block, it was easy to put together and looks adorable when finished.

Here they are side by side, cute huh??

I did finish the back to that super secret project I can't tell you all about too so off to the quilter with it. I will tell you I was testing a pattern for a designer, but that's all I can say. Glad it is on it's way to be quilted though it was a big project!

I had a new grand niece born on March 3rd and I have a quilt all ready for her, it just needed the label, so I got to work and made the label for it as well as a label for the dragonfly quilt I had made for my DD2.

It was dark last night so I only took a photo of the labels, not the quilts. I will try to remember to do that tonight so you can see the fronts. I did try out my new stamp that I bought. I was thinking of using it on twill tape for quilts I plan on selling, rather than ordering pre-made twill tape labels (more expensive). I wanted to try the stamp out so used it on DD2's label. I really LOVE it. I can't believe how detailed the cat came out.

Now I need to try some twill labels. I'll have to stamp some up to take with us when we go to PA so Quiltin' Queen can put them on the quilt for me!! If you get time pop over to her blog and check out the embroidered blocks we (mostly she) made to aid the efforts to give aid to the flood victims in Queensland. The patterns were designed by Helen Stubbings.

I thought you were going to show up a picture of your haircut? I need a good trim..maybe about 4" cut off, but I'm too chicken!

Love the label stamp - yes the kitty comes out wonderfully. Yes, where is that new 'do'?

Wonderful stamp label! If you don't mind me asking - where did you have it made and what kind of ink do you use to print on fabric? I've been debating about whether to buy premade labels but like the stamp idea better. It was nice to have an easier block this month. Isn't it nice that they include enought fabric to make two of each?

Very cool labels! How fun that is. How do you fill out the rest? Is that the pen you talked about in an earlier post? Your blocks are looking great!

Those ornament blocks would be cute as a fireplace scarf. The look really great next to eachother.

I love the Christmas ornament blocks and you are so smart to make two at once - it doesn't seem like such a big task to make two quilts when you do that. :) And I love the stamp - I've been thinking of ordering the twill tape but the stamp might be better. blessings, marlene

Those blocks are so great. I need to do mine. That stamp is so cute with the kitty on the end. They will make great twill ribbon labels.
