Final touches on the 5 commissioned military uniform quilts.  Name Tapes!  The client requested all 5 quilts have the same custom name tape on each quilt.  I think it will work like an “I Spy” type element, since the tapes don’t stand out against the quilts’ stripe design. I’m dropping them all off today.  Adios Quilty-Quilts.  ...
