Almost Finished Except For...

 ...Labels.  I have to stitch on some labels to finish up 4 quilts - 3 for Quilts of Valor and one for a wedding gift for my niece and husband-to-be.   I hate adding labels. Don't exactly know why I procrastinate for so long.  I want to ship off the quilts and the wedding is coming up so this is on my to-do list for tonight. 




And my Rainbow of Favorite Things Hexie Quilt is almost finished except for a few red and orange patches. I might get that finished up tonight also. This quilt has been made completely by hand.  I couldn't decide how to finish off the edges. I ended up turning under 1/4 inch on top and backing and stitching the two together with ladder stitch. I think that's what it's called. Might be called blind stitch. At any rate...I'm almost finished~!! 


This is the last day of my staycation so it's hi ho! hi ho! It's off to work I go tomorrow.  I did get a lot of weeding done and a lot of flimsies made so watch for some finished quilts here soon!
