    What I did yesterday

    My quilting guild (which I've just joined) require you to wear a name tag . . . if you show up for a meeting without yours they charge you a quarter. Some of the women have gotten quite creative in making their tags - so I thought I just HAD to follow suit. I've had this working in my brain for a couple months and yesterday I decided I just had to finish it. The name is sewn on my embroidery machine, the patchwork is an altered disappearing 9-patch that was sewn on my "Kate Smith" Singer Featherweight. It has a light-weight cotton batting and the binding is hand-stitched. I have added some special pins that mean something to me . . . and just this morning did a re-arrange and added a couple more. The finished name tag measures roughly 6 x 9 inches.

            Sandy - that's really cool! I love all the added pins and also the background. You are so clever!

            If you're ever inclined to make one that says TRISH on it, just let me know!

            What if you woke up today and the only things you had were the things you thanked God for yesterday? :icon_hug:quilting trish

                        So cute--so clever--so adorable---so big! That seems like a big name tag to wear to meetings, but then I guess all will see it and you can save your quarters for MSQC precuts! SuzyQue

                          You did a great job... what a wonderful idea!
                          You know you've had too much coffee when you can thread a sewing machine while it's running.
