  Can any of you wonderful quilters give a newbie instructions on how to add a label and where to get one.  I just made my very first quilt and I am so excited.  It is a John Deere and Farm Animal quilt.  I made it for a very dear friend who is having her first grandchild and they live on a farm so what better theme to do a child's room in.  LOL

  Thank you for any advice you can give me.  I am not sure if there is maybe a video that could help me or not.

debbie, i was in annapolis once in my life about 20 years ago and there was a wonderful little quilt shop there.   i have no idea where it was in you city.  we were four women from seattle and we had the book on quilt shops around the usa.  it was sunday and they were closed. we were so disappointed,  we heard a saw out back so we went around the back to peek  and the owner's husband was making new shelves.  we told him how disappointed we were and he hollered at his wife and  told us to go on in (through the back door).   she opened her shop for us and we had a great time  and an "exclusive" shopping experience.   one savvy shop owner.   gini

Kris:

Debbie,

you can label a quilt in so many different ways.

Use an orphan block (one that didn't make it into the quilt) and write on it with archival ink. You can make a machine embroidered label. I've also embroidered directly on the quilt itself, front or back. 

For me it's like quilting. The quilt determines what I do with it. I hardly ever label the same way twice.

Whatever you do have fun with it.

This is such a good topic.....tags, ladies!

Kris~You did it again. I really like the orphan block idea. I always have one or two kicking around and that would be perfect. Each one would be different and I can see doing different things with it to go along with the quilt.

Do Sharpie pens work o.k.?

Diane

Sharpies aren't your best option.  The ink runs really badly and I don't think they are archival quality.   The pigma pens work best.
