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.
