Card Exchange

So last night, I was sitting with a friend. I had finally remembered to bring a card along with me that I had gotten for her retirement in December. I had come across the very cute and appropriate card back in August and had "carefully" shepherded it along on a bulletin board, in my car, in my old minivan, under my purse, finally IN my purse, and was so pleased that I could finally whip out this card and give it to her. Well, Cheri handed me a card as well, and not only that, it was this gorgeous vision here from Laura Wilder. If you haven't seen her website, her work is transcendant. This card is from her handmade block print; I do think block print is just about the prettiest visual art form there is. In addition to the graphic quality of quilts of course :-).

Do any of the rest of you have trouble getting your labels on to your finished quilts? Well, moi certainly does, so out of insufferable pride, I wish to display my Finished Label that is On My Quilt.


another visual clue to the ongoing project:

Love your label...I am terrible about labels...that is just such a chore for me. Maybe I should make the label while I'm doing the quilt, then it might not be such a chore.

I love the quilter's cards. Beautiful picture. I always wonder how quilters in the future will look back and picture us....

I always LOVE what you show us! Your labels are wonderful, and I'm enchanted with the block prints!

Beautiful card!

I have to admit to sometimes just writing the information on the back of the binding and calling it good. =)

Very curious about these clues!

The card is great. I am also really bad about labels. Seems I only get my act together when it is time for a show and then I tend to make them on the computer and call it a day...

I don't always get around to putting a label on a quilt I've finished. I'll have to work on that, you labels are inspiring.

Can't wait to see what you are doing with the fabric in the picture.
