After I finish piecing a quilt top, I take a picture of it, type a description that I save on my computer, and place the quilt top in storage. When it comes time to give a quilt as a gift, I look through my pictures to determine which one I want to give, pull out the corresponding quilt top, load it onto my long-arm machine, and quilt it. I embroider a label so the quilt is ready to go. Since I am always piecing a quilt top, I never run out of quilts to give!
