I recently made a baby quilt for a coworker to give to her niece as a baby shower gift. Should I label it?? If so what do I put on the label, normally I would say who it was made for but in this case I don't know. Also should I include washing instructions or Shout Out sheets?
On my label I usually put who it's for, who made it the date, the occasion, pattern if you want to. If you want to send washing instructions, you could put them on a separate sheet. Can we see your quilt?

Since this is not a gift you are giving but one you made for someone else to give as a gift, I would just sign and date it somewhere on the quilt -- perhaps in a corner. An artist would sign his/her masterpiece. By all means attach washing instructions.
I would make a label, but leave some blanks. It could say something like "given by . . . for baby . . . Date of birth: weight: height: And give them a permanent ink fabric pen with it to fill in the blanks. I like the idea of giving them the washing instructions.
