    Thought I'd pass this along cause I just learned something the hard way!! :evil:
    When you finish a quilt top & don't plan on quilting it cause you haven't found the right backing or whatever the reason.
    Pin the name of it on a post it & pin it.
    I made a magazine pattern & don't remember the name!!
    Now I have to look at a bunch of magazines to find it!!! :cry:

    Never do that again!! :oops: :oops:

    Something else to add:

    the size of the top so you don't need to measure it again.

    Here's the picture I had posted a while ago.
    Usually I put the name of the quilt on the picture.
    But I was just so happy to finish it. :roll:

    Does anyone remember seeing this in one of your magazines??
    And what the name was???
