Rose Guild Nametags

I belong to 2 guilds. One guild is called "The Lancaster Rose Quilters". They are a traditional guild where one must be an accomplished quilter to join. There is also a long waiting list. I am happy and lucky to have gotten in.

Each year the guild ladies work together to make a raffle quilt. Last week, people volunteered to sit at a local bank during an art walking tour to sell raffle tickets. There was some talk about name tags. A few of the ladies said that they would just write their names in slips of paper. That just wouldn't do! I stamped up some nametags this evening (while rewatching Burn Notice). Nothing fancy, but hopefully the ladies will like them.

One of the ladies showed me a pin that they had hand appliqued a long time ago. She said that not everyone has one and they took a long time to make. I have a quick and easy applique method. I think I might give it a shot and revamp the nametags! I'm working on a tutorial for you! To come in the near future ...
