It’s A Wrap: September Song

September Song is complete. It’s in the washing machine as I write this. I couldn’t wait to show it to you, even if it’s not in its absolute finished condition. (You know how I love the puckery look of a freshly laundered quilt.)

Once the label was made . . .

. . . I fused it to the back of the quilt and then stitched around the outer edge by hand:

Don’t you think September Song looks good on my couch? I may have to add it to my rotation. As I was taking photos, You-Know-Who came along to fulfill her usual role of photobomber:

Don’t be fooled, though. Coco couldn’t care less about my quilt. She’s giving me that look because she thinks it’s dinnertime.

    This quilt looks perfect with your living room furniture! Please add it to the rotation! After you wash your quilt, do you iron it or steam it? I also love the crinkled look of a quilt. Congratulations on another stunning project!

    LOVE IT!!! The binding is perfect. Like you I enjoy to the binding process by hand. I think about the recipient or listen to an audiobook or panic that I have nothing sorted out for dinner. I even do the bindings for my sister.

    The color coordinated cat is spectacular with your spectacular quilt, Dawn! I am so curious how you have printing on your label? Did you print the fabric on your home printer? Is it fabric? or suede? I really like how that looks and am ashamed to say I have never labeled a quilt. Please advise! Thank you and Congratulations on your lovely quilt!

      Hi Terese. Yes, I print my labels on my inkjet printer using fabric that has been interfaced with a fusible interfacing and then trimmed to 8-1/2 x 11 inches. I have a tutorial on my website explaining how I do that. You can view it at this link:

      I also have a tutorial explaining how I make a round label using a compact disc as a pattern. The link is here:

      For the label on September Song, I made an inset circle from the label fabric and then used part of the background fabric to make the outer ring. It’s rather difficult to explain that process. Perhaps another tutorial is in order!

    What a reveal – nothing less than utterly sensational!

    Just beautiful! Love the colors (matching Coco… was that deliberate?). 🙂
