    My Goodness! Never Thought of it Before

    I've been quilting for 2 1/2 decades and never thought of this before. As some of you have seen, I write my quilt labels on a piece of fabric and then sew them on. I have a tendency to put a lot of information on them. I always had to guess where to start writing in order to have some of the edge to turn under. Last night I was working on several and wishing I'd turned them under and ironed them so they would stay. This morning I did just that, to some that have not been written yet. Now, I do not have to guess. Why did it take so long?

    Sometimes the idea just 'clicks' regardless of how long we've been doing something! One of those ah-ha moments. Gotta love 'em.

    I have been sewing for 60 years and quilting for 40. I am amazed and thrilled that I continue to learn things (usually that make things much easier). And a great many of those things come from this site!!!!!! Thanks to all of you.

    I'm a long time quilter and I learn new things at least once or twice a month. Some are things that should have been obvious but I tend to stick with what works. Your tip about the labels is much appreciated. Quilters are some of the most generous folks on the planet.

    I love it that you had write your label. Leaves a sample of your writing that will be treasured.
