Ribbon Quilt Label

Finally, a proper label! @colelife @lifesrichpattern
For my faithful followers you may remember that I finished Joy, for the Queen last summer.  I was so proud of this simple patchwork quilt made of Anna Maria Horner's Field Study collection and a Cereopsis voile backing.  It was my first attempt at free motion quilting on a full quilt.  For months I debated how to label this quilt and now that she is going included in a local quilt show held by the Amherst Quilters' Guild I realized it was now or never!
Luckily, I had an epiphany when I remembered the AMH ribbon I uncovered in my stash while cleaning my studio.  At first it the idea seemed a bit excessive, I have been saving this ribbon for a long time...but then I decided this particular quilt is all about the Queen (i.e. Me insofar as my house is concerned) so why not!  After all nothing succeeds like excess!

What a great idea - you are so clever! I was just sorting through my ribbons and I think a few would look great as part of a quilt label.

Your label is cute. Love your quilt. Nothing better than a little AMH.

Lovely! Your labels are brilliant…I'm recalling your envelope version a while back. I'll definitely try this.
