Why don't you just print it out on fabric using your printer?

I too just put a signed label on the back, after going through that matching I forgot about the label and just put one on.

I was easy to do, just bought someflowered material then cut it out in a heart and then cut it in 2 in squares fused it to interfacing, then filled in the rest with 2 inch sqares then drew on the back interfacing a grid of 2 inch squares then folded and on each line and sewed it 1/4 in away from it, done really quick,..

Golo, I have a HP (Hewlett Packard) custom quilt label kit that I use. It has backgrounds you can select or you can use your own pictures as a background. It has clip art and quilting phrases. You can select colors and type font. also can make gift cards to match.

I really have not spent a lot of time learning what all it does. I believe I bought it at Joann's quite a few years ago.

Because I have a laser printer, not an inkjet printer. :)

Oh hummerlou thank you so much for posting the picture. It is indeed beautiful. Made with whites and purples. I will treasure it always and forever. She did such a fantastic job with the quilting. And I love the Log Cabin block.

I plan to send her something very special.

Memaw,
I'm so tickled you like it! I read your likes and dislikes and wanted it to be something you would like with a little me thrown in. Purple and log cabins are my favs, too. So. it was perfect for me to get your name.

Betweens is there some way you could mark the list, say wiht an asterix or something to denote who has recieved theirs and then we know who is still waiting. Mum is worrying about her mini and how long the mail is taking. just a thought

UMMM I know there is a buzz about Christmas mini swap... i am all for that, but maybe we could have a holiday swap? I love Hallowe'en and Valentine's day.... so a mini made up for either for those would be great... Or maybe Thanksgiving instead... or just fall?... i have very little for either of those. Just a thought.. Maybe we could make the minis for our favorite holiday so that when that holiday showed up the person who had our mini could think, ahhh this is so and so's favorite holiday. Just an idea.


I will shut up now. :others-164:
