Finally, A Label!

I bet you forgot about this quilt! The pink quilt :) It was basically finished, except for threads hanging loose along the seams and a missing label.

Well, I remedied the threads, mostly snipping them, unless I hadn't backstitched.

Then came the search for a label. The quilt is for a friend of mine in Germany, and luckily she's one of those persons you wish had more than one birthday because she's so vocal and clear about what she likes, it's always easy to find something for her.

Anyway, she really likes elephants and I just had some cute elephant fabric arrive in the mail.

So I cut a small patch of the fabric and used that as a label.

I have to say that I really like using printed fabric as label as opposed to plain muslin - might be a good way to use up some of my scraps, too!
