How to make a label.
Open up a new Word document and write whatever you want in the label. I used Edwardian Cursive size 48 from memory. Don't forget to include your dates. I know you should also include boring info like washing instructions and materials used but I saved that for a small label on the back.
No Way Out - doesn't it look like the perfect maze to occupy a lot of time. For a time you actually get the feeling you may be going somewhere but you're not. A lot like some days at work!
Bamboozled - this block came from a mixture of two quilts I'd made before, Flying Geese and Circles. Another day of going nowhere fast. This wasn't a fun time at work but things did improve.
Pebbles dropped into slowly moving water form ripples and then Reflections. I do enjoy skipping stones.
It was a restful time when Free Time was made. That was why I could have so many tiny pieces in such a small block. 57 pieces in fact.
I just love sitting on the machine and mindlessly Stringing Away. I have so many strips but have now thrown out most of the small ones I used for this type of block.
I just love it when you see the first of the blossoms appear as Winter comes to a close.
I always think of an English Garden as a subtle restful place with delicate flowers here and there.
Paul loves gardening and could spend forever there ... even at night with stars in the sky if able :-)
The lime green in this block looked as stark as White Wall Tiles in a new building. Funny it doesn't look as stark in the finished quilt.
Yes I know the saying once in a blue moon. At the time this block was made there were so many once in Blue Moon events that I had to make a series of them.
The long strips in Solid Gold appeared a lot more definite in the finished block than they did in the design.
Which is the maze, the pink roses or the green path that meanders Through the Roses?
Well of course you will all immediately guess where I was when I made Champs Elysee Alight and what I'd been up to the previous night ... Paris is beautiful. I'm so glad PJ studied there for a few years.
