And the winner is...
It is Give Away Day at Sew Mama Sew. I am giving away a custom embroidered quilt label.
I just love the idea of creating a label to match the quilt and to document the provenance of each quilt. I have several quilts from my family where the history is lost. We can only guess about who and when. One particularly gorgeous example was found in my grandmother's house. My dad said, his mother could not have made it but we have no way of knowing who did.
The two pictures here are of custom quilt labels designed to match a particular quilt. I have several designs at WaggonsWest . But, as you can see here, I like to work with my customers to come up with new designs. The lion label is an example of combining an existing border with one of my badge designs. It was FUN. The vine one was a completely new design created for a customer and now available.
No matter how many times I am told that I need to label my quilts and despite the fact that I make custom embroidered quilt labels all the time, I never seem to manage to put a fancy label on any of my quilts. I am usually using my fabric marker and writing around the binding on the back at the last minute if I have to ship one out the door. It is truly pathetic. That doesn't have to be the case for you. All you have to do is tell me what sort of label you would like to see in the comments. Flowers? Fancy? Text only? Photos? What is your favorite label?
The fine print:
Up for grabs is one custom quilt label. I will ship internationally. Drawing will be held when I wake up on May 17. The winner will be notified by email so be sure to leave an addy if you are a no name blogger! The official rules say that your prize has to be mailed by May 20. However, this is a custom order. We will chat about what it is you want and I will design something specifically for you. It usually takes a few weeks to get it all nailed down and stitched out. So patience is necessary for this prize. Winner will be chosen by a random drawing from my favorite comments.
