A Sunday Finish.

This is the New Year's Eve Mystery from 2012. Only seven months later and this top is now a completed quilt. Woohoo! Looks better doesn't it, trimmed and bound.
 The Circle Lord Swirls design turned out nicely and it was pretty fast.
 And now I can add professionally printed labels to all of my quilts.
These were made by "Fabric On Demand" and it took a couple of tries to get it right but it was worth the wait, they will be more permanent than those I have been printing on the computer which are washable but I have no idea just how many launderings before they fade away!
In order to get the bright blue background they had to print on a 54" polyester satin and I ended up with about a hundred for around $30. The company is on the east coast and is very responsive, helpful  and cooperative.
I first tried to get the labels through "Spoonflower" but unfortunately they are unable to work with PDF files whereas Fabric On Demand was able to convert my file to their format.
Both companies will print your design to order in any arrangement, color, fabric weight and content etc.
It might be a fun way to make your own family designs or something for a family reunion, the possibilities are endless.
Either company will usually ship your fabric in about ten days.

Such bright colors :) Is this quilt for someone special or just for?
The labels are great too. Glad you found a good source for them.
