As you have probably gathered by now, I tend to do mainly hand stitching, and like to maintain that integrity throughout the project, by hand piecing and hand quilting. However, when it comes to doing my quilt labels, I like to use my embroidery machine.

In the past I have done a lot of creative machine embroidery, and have the sewing machines and threads to prove it! Therefore I like to take the opportunity to use my embroidery machine to make my quilt labels. With the completion of my Red and White Pinwheel quilt, I had the opportunity to blow the dust of this machine and reacquaint myself with the software, to make a little label for my finished quilt. Watching these machines is mesmerising, and it never ceases to seduce me. For this label, I didn't even have to put the pedal on, I just used the Start / Stop button!

We all like to do things differently - how do you like to mark you quilts?
