FNWF - Quilt Guild tag

Friday Night with Friends!  After spending some time on the computer, I got a late start to FNWF, and an even later finish, but I did complete a name tag for my local quilt guild, Quilters Unlimited.  It's been on my To Do list since I joined the guild last June, and saw the other ladies with their block name tags.

Block pattern for name tag.
The block pattern is for a 4" finished tag.  I drew the design in Electric Quilt to audition my own fabric with it.  I decided on the following fabrics:

Here is the EQ rotary cutting instruction for this block showing my fabric.

I cut the pieces and then assembled...


Rows Assembled
Block together.

I decided to add a small border and embroider my info on it:
Embroidered and border added.

I sandwiched some batting and backing fabric, plus a neck strap and stitched and turned it, pillow-case style.  Used the walking foot to stitch in the ditch.

Finished tag.

Butterfly fabric is on the back.
I'll be checking out the others who stitched last night too.  Love to see other's projects.

Happy Stitching!
