My First Posting!

I plan on adding my bride's facial expression as her full personality develops.  I know she will be very happy if the right groom appears!

Labels, last step....


This post is about the labels....I used a product called C. Jenkins freezer paper sheets, 50 sheets 8.5 x 11" and used white cotton.  I ironed the white fabric to freezer paper then trimmed each sheet precisely with rotary cutter.     I scanned a picture from one of my books showing the Civil War Bride quilt along with a picture of the paper templates.  I typed general information about this quilt I found in the book along with my thoughts about the quilt which is on another sheet.  Last sheet I had problems getting it the way I wanted, label with my personal info.  I finally just printed it out on copy paper full size picture of my quilt then laid my typed info onto this and then printed onto freezer paper.  The color of my quilt is horrible and not anywhere near the true colors but I got so tired messing with it I just left it that way and printed it.
