Sweet Sundays Quilts

I sewed labels on the 15 quilts that are set to go to the VA Hospital tomorrow.

I made the labels using my printer and a piece of muslin fabric. It's an easy process where I just iron muslin on a piece of freezer paper, cut it to 8.5" x 11" and run it through my printer. I then peel the muslin off the freezer paper, iron the muslin to set the ink, then apply Heat N' Bond Lite to the back.

I used to try to put the Heat N' Bond on the muslin then run it through the printer but I found that sometimes the fabric jammed in the printer. When that happened, it was an expensive waste of the Heat N' Bond. And freezer paper can be used over and over again so that is definitely the cheaper thing to do.

So I ironed the labels on the quilts then using a zig-zag stitch, I sewed around each label. Done.

My husband's American Legion group will be delivering these to the veterans tomorrow night. My church group is so happy to be able to give these little gifts to them.
