Quilt Label Tutorial

If you click on the link below, you should be able to download my tutorial on making fabric labels using Bubble Jet Set from C. Jenkins Necktie Company.  I’ll talk more about printing your own quilt labels in a future post–I have several I need to make for current projects so I’ll include photos.  If this link does not work, just leave me a comment.  Here is a link for obtaining Bubble Jet Set if your local quilt shop does not carry it.  You need this to pretreat your fabric before running it through the printer.  http://www.cjenkinscompany.com/

Last week, I tried a new recipe from Green Giant.  I omitted the onions, used olive oil instead of butter to sauté the red pepper, added mushrooms and lemon pepper and used shaved parmesan on top.  I used half a package of frozen Birdseye Mushroom Blend and Bertolli Four Cheese Rosa Sauce but next time I think I will use the Garlic Alfredo instead and also cut up my own veg instead of using frozen.  To reheat, I put the leftovers in a smaller dish at 250 for 20 minutes.  This did not heat up the turkey/veg mixture so I scraped off the biscuits and placed them back in the oven wet side up and heated the remainder in the microwave.  Voila–leftovers without soggy biscuits.

I am on the home stretch with the binding for my Redwork Quilt and have finished the Swoon table mat.  Photos coming soon!  I am back working on the orange leaf slice.  I’m taking the day off to try a new restaurant, Williams Soul Food Express in Bentonville.  I’m going with a friend and then we’re going to the member preview at Crystal Bridges for the Jamie Wyeth exhibit.  No camera today but I’ll take pictures next time I go and share those as well as some from Andy Warhol exhibit.  Have a great weekend.

 

About icandyet.com

Hi—I’m Candy P. I live in beautiful Northwest Arkansas and write this blog about quilting. I love the entire process of quilting from design to piecing and appliqué, to free-motion quilting on my Janome. I have been sewing since I was five and started quilting in 1991 with a group in NE Minnesota. We used cardboard templates and scissors and did everything by hand. I have since made traditional quilts, donation quilts and Quilts of Valor; I’ve done paper piecing and foundation quilting but now really enjoy improvisational piecing using scraps from my stash or my hand dyed fabrics and making art quilts. I am also currently trying to finish any and all unfinished projects. I am so far behind I can never die. I have always been a maker, a sewist and needleworker, running the gamut from hand embroidery to macramé, knitting, crocheting, crafts, book binding and mixed media projects. I have taught a lot of handicraft classes including fabric painting, origami, and calligraphy, Dancercise (who remembers that) and my own exercise classes. When I’m not in the garage dyeing fabric or in my studio, I’m at Zumba or walking on local trails and photographing art or whatever catches my eye. I currently belong to Crystal Bridges, AQS, The Quilt Show, NWA Modern Quilt Guild and the Van Go-Go Girls (a local art quilt group). I occasionally make it to the piano and the golf course and enjoy cooking with my husband and generally wreaking some kind of havoc with my daughter. You can read my previous blog at Kandykwilts.blogspot.com but you cannot read my blog as northwind at The Quilt Show, apparently lost forever. I write about my current projects, mistakes and all, and often tell you what products I use (with no compensation). I am open to suggestions about blog posts and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about my projects or posts. Comment or email me. Feedback is most welcome—just be kind.
