Very cute handstitcher!

Finished my first wool appliqué quilt. DD gave me the kit from Keepsake Quilting last year, although CT now carries it as well. It's little, just 13" x 15". Worked up very quickly.

Annette what you might want to do for future generations is to add a label on the back starting the name of your current DIL & when she joined the family.  Maybe add a little applique to it so it compliments the front of the quilt.

Could you show us a close up of the area of the quilt you mean? I was trying to look at it on your page, but couldn't zoom in enough.

Annette, thanks for the info on the inking. Hmmm, that's an interesting dilemma. How's the relationship between the three? I'll have to think about this......

QD, I've just ironed the blocks that I inked.  That's what Elly told me to do, so that's how I handle them.  I have my Johnston Family Album hanging in my Studio and they haven't shown any signs of fading.  

But I have a question for all of you.  Sadly, after the completion of my quilt, my son and then DIL decided to divorce.  He has since remarried but I'm not sure how to add the new wife.  I certainly won't edit tge first one out but amendments sometimes have to happen.  Any ideas?

I started inking my first BAQ in the early 90s and did a lot of practice pieces around that time as well. So far, all are still in good shape with no fading that I can see. I figure that if it starts to fade over time, my descendants will hopefully have newer, better products to retrace with by then.

Chuckle for the day: I told DH I had to go to the store because I was out of the floss I need. He told me there was more floss in the bathroom, samples from the dentist. Not quite the embroidery floss I had in mind....

Dona, that's good to hear! I've taken so long to finish this quilt, I'd hate to have something happen!

Handstitcher  I have a quilt made about 20 years ago using pigma pens in a variety of colors and they have not faded at all.  WE made an autograph quilt for my grandmother's 85th birthday.

I love doing wool applique'.  A lot of the patterns show liberal uses of the buttonhole/blanket stitch, I usually stitch down the large pieces using a whip stitch & then reserve the fancier embroidery stitches for embellishment.  It uses less thread plus is faster to do.
