"Tag you're it" - Reveal Day 9

I think I finally made "it"...  everybody talks about "it" cause they want "it", well I've got "it" now!

If you think I will live "it" down or stop "it", you really don't know me...

  • Imagined a quilt made of clothing labels*
  • Saved clothing labels for "it"*,and  was given clothing labels* (receiving them in the mail, in person, via messenger; and yes, I will still accept more, this is not my last label quilt)
  • Created light colored applique letters, fused base fabric cream colored Kona !!!
  • Created dark colored background on base fabric using Steam a Seam sticky fusible!!!
  • Zigzag stitched applique - later inked in applique stitch with black Sharpie marker!!!
  • Free Motion Machine quilted the light areas with lime green, and dark ones with Navy Blue - this is why I had Navy Blue on my machine - so at this point I decided to edge many of the quilts from the early days of this challenge
  • Free Motion ZigZagged edge!!!
  * - These steps were done prior to 12x12x12 challenge
!!! - First time I ever did this type of thing

and what is behind "it" you ask...


"its" backed with cash - well, cash fabric


  1. Clever. I'm so glad you finally made "it." So interesting that you had so many labels that were clearly dark and so many that were clearly light. I'm eager to see the next label quilt.
