*The base of the triangle (which is the top long edge) is on the selvedge so I don't need to turn that edge under.
*The other two raw edges will be secured in the corner behind the binding.
*I heavily starch the fabric.
*The lines are ruled with a hera marker.
*I used magic tape
to secure the edges while I wrote my information. It easily lifts off without pulling on the fabric. (This is the same tape I use for foundation piecing 'repairs'.)
*I used a .5 black pigma pen and neatly printed:
**the name of my quilt
**'adapted from a design by...'
**who the quilt was for
I also use pre-printed labels (when I can find them) and labels I print myself (when my printer has ink).
How do you make your labels?

My daughter Hannah did all of the decorating and most of the cooking.
This is my daughter Corbie helping with the red velvet cupcakes.
Topped with blue icing and fairy floss of course.
Have you figured out yet it's a Dr Seuss theme?
The amazing cake was made by the mum-to-be's father's ex-partner.
Yummy jelly deserts with cream.
Hannah finally got to give Caz the nappy bag I made at the retreat which I blogged about here.
It was a really good day.

It seems the decorator colour of the moment are brown and orange. What a lovely room.
So I'm sharing all this as I can't show you my sewing. If you've made it this far, I will tell you that I had a slightly tricky design problem (basically I'm scared I'll wreck the quilt) so I decided to photocopy that section of the quilt and practice sketching what I want to embroider. Seems to have worked so progress is continuing. What are you working on?
