I just have to share this quilt that is 99% finished (I just have to sew on the labels).
I made it for my friends granddaughter "Scarlett Winter". Scarlett came along at just the right time last year - my friend was nursing her mum at home in the latter stages of a terminal illness. When mum died my dear friend gave me most of her sewing supplies, including a horn sewing table and a bunch of UFO's; the only request was I finish and use everything. The centre of the quilt was a UFO but wasn't sure what to do with it; after many months of deliberation and a birthday fast approaching I remembered a fairy panel I had in my stash. It was meant to be - mums name was Shirley and there were 2 Shirley Poppy Fairies on the panel.
I found an amazing tutorial by Jenny of Elefantz all about printing onto fabric.... I wrote out the quilts story and then followed Jenny's very clear instructions and voila ....... printed labels.
I think there'll be lots of tears when Scarlett receives her quilt and Nanna reads the story.
