I've spent my spare moments over the last four days, hand sewing the labels and sleeves on the two quilts I'll be taking way with us for gifts, the one for Caroline and the Orange Explosion. I've been thinking, no, I won't post yet, I'll wait until I've got photos of the labels and of the finished quilts, then I'll post. Well, guess what? I've finished the quilts, I've sewn on the labels and sleeves AND I've wrapped the quilts in little cotton bags and tied them up with big bows and I'm blowed if I'm unwrapping them to get photos! So, here is the photo of the finished quilts and here is the poem Terry wrote for the label on the Orange Explosion. If you like it and want to use it on your quilt label you are welcome.
Use this quilt any way you want
Right way up - or back to front
It’s got a sleeve for hanging on the wall
Just like a picture, and it won’t fall.
You can throw it in the car as a picnic rug
Or wrap it round each other in a loving hug
Squeeze it, scrunch it, throw it around
Or just leave it lying on the ground.
Use it on a table, give it to the cat
Wrap it round your head like a very tall hat!
But it’s too big for a hankie, I suppose
So please don’t use it to blow your nose.
It’s been a pleasure to make so take it please
You can use it to warm your winter knees
And if you tire of having it stay
Make someone else happy and give it away!
