Thinning the pile of quilts here

My parents were just here for a visit and I ended up sending four quilts home with them.

One for my dad:
QAYG Retreat Quilt

One for my aunt:

And two baby quilts for a charity auction:
Zigzag Baby Quilt

Baby Bliss--done

But, before I sent them, they all needed labels.  I love the look of hand embroidered labels, but that was not going to happen.  So I tried stamped labels.

I ordered the fabric ink online and I got the letters and the clear acrylic press at Joann's.  It feels good to get quilts labeled with more than scribbling with a Micron pen. 

I didn't get a picture of the stack of four folded quilts that my parents had to haul home.  We had to loan them a piece of our luggage for the plane ride.  But now I have more room to make more for the stack of quilts to stay here.

Gorgeous quilts! Does this mean you need to make more for the 'staying' pile, now?!

I love the one your dad took. And your little labels! I have to say it feels special to give someone a quilt, even though sometimes it's really hard.
