Ready for the Mailman


I've been procrastinating a little on finishing the label for my winter swap quilt, but today I finally did it. I picked up some fabric pens that I kind of like. I'm pretty pleased how well the purple shades actually match the quilt. I hope my partner likes what I did. It is more traditional than many of the quilts I have seen completed, which are also lovely. I just didn't feel compelled to use blue & white, typical winter colors, as they are not "my" colors, or do appliqued mittens & trees -- all very typical of winter. The ivory fabric has a subtle snowflake patterning on it.
And yes, it is sitting on real-live snow. Two feet of it to be exact! And I took my picture just in time, as it has begun to snow here.
