Last week my friend Krista grounded me and then when I explained to Shanna why I was grounded, she heartily agreed with Krista! Ahhhhh!
Let me explain…I’ve been quilting for 12 years come this summer (it is easy for me to keep track, my first quilt was for my niece and she turns 12 in September) and I have NEVER put a label on a quilt. I know. Shock, Gasp, Faint! I just haven’t taken the time. You are probably going to be even more appalled when I tell you that I was a history major in college, so yes preserving the past is very important to me and before I got pregnant with Anne I was going to school for my master’s in education and substitute teaching in schools. You would think someone like me would label everything, but I haven’t. I’m just always so excited to get to the finish that I don’t take the time.
What is my sentence? I am grounded to my room with no TV for 3 hours per unlabeled quilt. Here’s the thing I’m not exactly sure how many quilts that is, it is easily over 30. I am, however, allowed a computer and internet access, but I am not allowed to buy fabric. That is my punishment!
I am happy to report that last week I joined those labeling fanatics and have done my first label. It is on a quilt for my mom and it is using her method. I will have a tutorial up for it later this week, by Friday for sure.
So tell me…am I the only one who is horrible about labeling and would rather just finish the quilt?
