Kookaburra quilt finish

So, I finished nearly 6 weeks ago, and am only getting around to doing this post.

The Kookaburra quilt is done!

You can find info on the fabrics used in this post.

Quilt labels are my absolute least favorite part of quilting. I have tried using an applique, I have tried writing on the quilt, I have tried a square tucked into the binding. I have found all of these things either incredibly frustratingly difficult or nerve-wracking (that would be the writing!). I found the idea of using the silhouette to make cloth labels at Sew Nocturnal. I used the same kind of pen, but used twill tape. I chose twill tape because I wouldn't need to finish the edges, but oh was getting it centered impossible. I am hoping to find some smoother cotton tape to try in the future, because it could be very quick and easy.

Simple label using my Silhouette
Simple—except for trying to get it centered!
Happy boy

The pattern is from All People Quilt: Fat Quarter Twin Bed Quilt. I made size adjustments because my son has an Ikea Kura bed, and a traditional twin would not work!
