    Call me a wimp but I am finding the label harder than the block.

    I finally found the fabric I have that goes through the printer. (I thought of you Terri)

    The reason I had my label done so fast is that I am using a Pigma pen and just writing on it!
    I didn't do anything but draw lines!!! :shock:

    I don't have a pigma pen yet. Maybe that is a good excuse to go to the fabric store. We will use any excuse won't we.

    I plan on sending just a piece of paper with mine for everyone to sign. Then, when it comes back, I will scan and copy the whole thing to fabric through the printer. That way I can add any graphics or designs I want to the scan.

    Just like the centers...we are all different! I just embroidered "International Round Robin Quilt, by my friends on Quiltingboard.com, 2008-2009" and left PLENTY of room for everyone to sign.

    Babeegirl I like your idea. Now I have more options to think about. That was my problem in the first place. I'm probably trying to make it more difficult than it needs to be. I just know how special it is going to be after you all do your work to it that I want it all to be that special. I know, I know it is just a label but it's important.

    i am so bummed. I was working on my landscape quilt and I'm just not sure it is going to work. I want to use clear thread to applique the dogwood blossoms (tree itself is done) and i have both nylon and poly - the poly thread won't stay on the spool and keeps getting tangled up while I am winding the bobbin :x . The nylon thread is on a spool with the little "knick" in it at one end, which of course is the end that the thread has to wrap around (I have a horizontal thread thingie) and the thread keeps getting stuck in that little knick and stops/breaks. I bought a vertical spool holder today and hopefully that will help.

    Plus, I was going to cut out these beautiful wisteria blossoms and machine applique them on, but as I was getting ready to cut them out, I looked closer and I just won't be able to cut them out without leaving so much background fabric around the blossoms that is will look so bad onthe quilt center. So, then I put some grass under the tree and hopefully will be able to do a bird bath with a small bird on it - and then applique SPRING vertically down the other 1/2 of the block. But it's not goingn to look like i wanted it to. :cry: :cry:

    So then I found a great dogwood applique pattern in a book that Henry has and now I might totally change course and do that instead. Not as detailed and will be simpler and quicker to finish. But I really want to finish my landscape quilt!!!!! I'm so STUCK on which to do!! :?

    Thanks for listening :-)
