As you read this post, I will be enjoying my guild's biennial quilt show. The week before a show can be really busy.
I am now looking forward to a relaxing Saturday enjoying the quilts at the show.
If you are reading this on May 4th -- you still have time to join us at the Maple Grove Community Center in Maple Grove, Minnesota..
Custom Quilt Labels using Electric Quilt 8 and Word
Nine easy steps for creating a custom quilt label using Electric Quilt.
See the process in this weeks Electric Quilt (plus Microsoft Word) video tutorial.
Here are my four labels added to my quilt backs. (See -- I do find a little bit of time to create real quilts.)
Tip: Include photos of the quilt labels in the same file as the quilt design -- just in the photo section of the project sketchbook.
Note: I did print my labels with my Laser Printer (in violation of all the rules of printing on fabric). The biggest downside on printing with laser is that there is a build-up of ink on the fabric. This definitely stiffens the label and can make needling through the fabric a bit of a challenge. I found a thimble to be very helpful to both push and pull when sewing down the labels.
