quilt for miss mae
i've been giving a fresh coat of paint to a cute queen anne style bed that i picked up for mae on ebay (actually, i got a pair, one for soph in the years to come, too) and realised that i'd better finish her single size quilt so she'll be able to use it. i backed it with a floral print and bound it with a tiny pink stripe, both from lecien. looking at the photos, i think it's funny that although this was completely pieced on the fly, it slightly resembles both a map of australia and the letter M... bizarre, no?
i hand stamped the label using my new favourite tool, a rolling alphabet stamp that i first saw on gennine's blog and bought on ebay. (does it sound like i spend a lot of time on ebay? i do.) gennine's blog, by the way, is an absolute gold mine of handprinting inspiration, the perfect place to get yourself fired up for handprinted: a fabric swap. i'm just sayin'.
