    Unhappy Best wording for quilt label.

    A friend ask me to piece together a quilt with blocks made by her grandmother. What is the best way to word the label without offending anymore? Should I place my name on the label or should I only have the the lady who made the blocks? Any suggestions would be helpful. Also I have not gotten any e-mails from the board. I used to received one everyday, but have not gotten any e-mails in months. Any idea how I can fix this??
    Thanks all!

    I have used wording like "Blocks made (pieced, sewn, whatever) by XXX, Quilt assembled and finished by YYY".
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    I recently finished a quilt for a friend who's grandma had made the blocks. We decided to call it
    "From Granny's Hands" and then added:
    Blocks made by ........................(grandma's name) est. date ............
    Completed for .....................(friend's name)
    Sewn and quilted by ............... (my name)
    completion date.......
    I used to be "hot", now it's just "hot flashes!"

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I also think t's suggestion is very appropriate and provides a lot of historical information for future generations.
