    I use my muslin leftovers and write on with pigma pen. If not that, I use my machine embroidery to make the label. If you really want to spruce it up, after writing on piece of fabric, add a few pieces around the outer edge to add that zip to it then sew it on.

    that is going to be a great BOY quilt! i miss my boys being that little! they are all grown up. bummer! fortunately, my husband is at work when the mail comes (except saturday). so he has little chance to nick my squishies! however, it gives me at least a fighting chance to get my new fabrics hidden, er, i mean," put away properly", before he sees them! i am such a fabriholic!! i will lie here in the bed at night, right next to his soundly sleeping self, and order yards of fabric! i am soooo bad! ooooo, i love it!!

    WOW cant beleive the blocks already done and flying home by you guys! I feel so far behind ...thanks for all the hints about the label..never thought about using a piece of fabric..makes sense! I dont have a machine that does embrodry. I have a old singer but its a great machine. Wishing for a newer more updated but this is fine for now! I got a VERY pretty block from moonrise today...it is exactly the romantic theme I was wanting for that fabric! It was funny, when I opened the envelope I just saw my fabric and thought...hmmmm moon purchased the same fabric I had...then I was surprised when I opened it all the way and saw the beautiful block! Thanks Lisa!

    Anna I got your F8 today. Im in the process of making a Civil War quilt with a panel of Union Generals and one of Confederate Generals so Im hoping I can find a good piece to go with your beautifully dyed fabric! Any preference in block design??

    Today's update ladies, received F8's from nanakathy55, okdarla, annaquilts, tucked you all away safely in my big stack. I swear I will get to the end of them! Sent home finished blocks to abby'smom, savannahrandoms 1 for diamond and 1 for rubies, travelinggramma in rubies, and twinriverfarms. They'll be in the album shortly if you want to peek. Better get some rice started in the cooker for stir fry tonight and then clean strawberries, freeze, and cut some more fabric.

    Thank you for asking. That is very kind of you. I would prefer a more traditional block, one that might be found during the Civil War time if that is possible. Else a star block would be nice. I think a very modern block would not fit in as well because of the theme and fabrics. Have fun making it. I would love to see your work in progress from your Union and Confederate Generals quilt. It sounds very interesting and beautiful. Who are the makers of the fabric for the General's fabric?

    Anna I think the fabric of the generals was by Windham Fabrics. I purchased it from Ebay. Had two of each but a friend begged me for a set so I gave it to her! My daughter in law wants the quilt when Im done but Ive grown kind of attached to it. Still have to put the grey flag material on the sides and maybe a solid color border around the outside. Im thinking Im going to hand quilt it to make it more "beleiveable" but machine quilting would sure go faster! I only have 3 to hand quilt...ugh. I have several patterns from Windham with Civil War theme so Ill try to pick a good one for your block! The only bad part is I LOVE all the reproduction material I have and its hard to pick out a color!
