    I had a lot of fun doing this "Hole in the Barn Door" quilt. It was the second top, but the first finished since I moved here a year ago. I named it "Stars in My Barn" because of the wonderful blue fabric I picked.

    Thanks hubby for holding it up for me.

    that pattern is perfect for that material....

    that square is also called "Sherman's March" and a good one for a CW quilt (which I will use it in my quilt I'm making (when I get time ha ha) for my gr-gr-grandfather)

    Oops

    Forgot to say what a lovely idea that you are so descriptive with your label. As much information about a quilt is always a good idea. :D

    Yes, yes, I like it loads!! I also like the "life story" on the label. I just think it makes it special. Great job!

    Thanks so much everyone for all the great comments. It feels so nice to have other people see and appreciate the work I put into my quilts. That is why I make a special effort to notice the work of others. I know everyone likes to feel the warmth of loving comments.

    Dear Bostpn 1954, I just LOVE your "history label." I wish that I had done that from the beginning. Actually I did do it on the first one, but never since. Think I'll start with the next one.

    Dear GailG,

    When I first started quilting, I did not bother putting on labels. Then I remembered something my mother had told me when I was doing cross stitch. She said it will be worth more in years to come if you put on the back who made it and when. Well, I started adding labels to the quilts that I still had access to. The ones I had kept or given to hubby or sister.

    There are a few that "got away" unlabeled, but a substantial number of them are "documented". Also, in my computer I have a list of information about the names and what number I gave them, the size AND I have photographed EVERY quilt I have ever made.

    I have been told that I am very organized. :D

    Anne
