Fair and Square is done-and Design Wall Monday

 I ended up just doing straight line quilting. The backing/batting is fleece, so it doesn't need to have the quilting too close together.

 The label idea came from one of the blogs I read. Print out whatever you want on the label in a font you like. Find a fabric that is thin enough to see through, then use a fabric pen and trace the printed information. Fold over and sew the ends in, then sew it into the binding. It's easy, I think it looks nice and I like the way it fits on the quilt.  Not too intrusive.  The binding was some homespun I had, no idea where I got it though. This gets sent today----Yay!

Yay, for a finish and looking good. Good idea on the label. I did the same thing when I was in a signature block swap.

Fabulous quilt Mary! Cool idea for the label!

Very dramatic, Mary. I like it!

I love the quilt and the label technique, but would like to suggest that for your next label you include your last name and the last name of any recipients and your city and state. Documentation needs to be more complete for future generations who may wonder who the heck Aunt Mary is!
