Ok. 2 questions. Do you make up the labels ahead of time or do you purchase them? And is the pillowcase just a standard size pillowcase that you sew to accompany the quilt?
** Pillowcases - here is a cool pattern at Vicki Welsh's blog
I have a question too. What information goes in the journal that goes with the quilt?
I made a basic journal that tells a little about how a quilt is made, it tells them what a QOV is - and that we want them to feel the hugs and love as the use the quilt. It is 2 pages, and pretty simple - but at least they know that there is a lot of work and love that goes into these quilts, and that MANY people wish to say Thank you!!
I'm curious as to what form the journal takes, is it a book?
The one I use is a 2 page print out on 8 x 11 paper, and then it is easy to pin to the quilt. I have found that if they aren't attached to the quilt somehow, as the recipient opens the quilt, they fall to the ground....
Hope that answers the questions so far - come back next Sunday for more - " A day in the Life of a QOV" there are a lot of different ways that I see them ;-)
