This is...a work in progress

I was invited by Angela to join the This is... group. I'm not sure exactly how it works, but basically one of the group posts a theme on Wednesday, and on Sunday everyone posts a photo of that theme. I think most of the members are from Australia and the UK, so it should be interesting to get a more worldly perspective of things. And how appropriate is this week's theme? I could have chosen any of several works-in-progress, but this is the one I have been concentrating on as of late (also the one I have been working on for the longest time!) It is a quilt made of Mary Engelbreit fabric with applique and prairie points, two techniques I hadn't attempted before. If you are familiar with ME fabric, you will get some idea as to how long I have been working on this, although, in my defense, I had the kit for at least a year before I started it! I have actually started machine quilting it, which you can see in the middle two blocks if you click on the picture for a closer look.

Thank you for your kind words! I am so sorry it's taken me forever to write...I just spotted your comment on my blog! To answer your question on the labels, I buy printable fabric sheets at Joann's fabric and then I print them out and just sew them in!

Hope that helps!
