Quilt Labels...


When I saw this piece of fabric I fell in love!
I didn't know they were quilt labels...
They are the most beautiful vintage frames...
Just waiting for empty spaces to be filled!


The fabric frames so beautifully...


I'm thankful for the piece I found...
I have been searching for more~


The local quilt shops had a few labels...
They are Christmas theme!
They had never seen this fabric pattern.


This music frame was perfect for a songbird friend...


I'm still working on a few special orders...

We're enjoying the last few weeks of summer~
School will begin in two weeks...
That is when I will begin working on my watercolor calendars!
Deadlines this fall for the year 2014!
I will share pictures of my 2012 calendars in my next post.
The samples arrived last week and warmed my heart.

Hope your August days are sunny and peaceful~
Wishing you every joy!

Just a thought - Dover Publications have so many copyright free images available and I wonder if you could find a quilt label one and print it onto your own fabric? I think they might have a book on ornamental frames too.

You are amazing, such a clever idea and they look gorgeous. Always something wonderful to see when I visit.
Also thank you for the lovely post with the two feathers.
And just visited Avery and left a little comment.
A break, busy trying to finish my quilt.
