Label That Quilt

Too often I finish a quilt and have not done a label. Ideally I will do the label and attach it to the back before it is quilted but it seems that rarely happens. I’m also not always sure what I want to name the quilt or what home it is going to find before the quilting.

At our last guild meeting one of the members shared how she is now labeling her quilts. Had to try it and love it! You set the label in a corner of the quilt when you bind it. It gets sewn on as you bind! I just did this on a quilt I am finishing and it feels so good to know when those last binding stitches are done – so is the label. Done and Done!!

Here’s a pic of the finished label. I have attached a PDF for the instructions so it can be printed out for future reference.  corner label inst

Remember: your quilt is a work of art! Would a painter finish a painting without a signature? Would a potter finish a piece without a stamp or signature? How wonderful for future generations to know when and where a quilt was made, who made the quilt and any other info you want to put on it. So go cut some squares out and label your quilts

      Just one of the benefits of a guild – sharing of great ideas. This has really worked for me. Certainly not my original idea, but wanted to pass the info along. Thank you for stopping by!
