  • Keeping your Quilt Block in the Order you want them.

    I don't know about you but once I have finished with all my blocks and have them in the order I want them in on my quilt wall, I have a heck of a time keeping them in that order when I need to sew. So instead of the little round labels or post-its that everyone else likes to use I use the photo/scrapbook...

  • Re: Labeling a quilt? I've never done one. Need suggestions.

    Elizabeth, Let me add that I have also entered my quilts in a show and I have not done anything different than I would usually do for the particular quilt label.

  • Re: Labeling a quilt? I've never done one. Need suggestions.

    Elizabeth, I mainly do quilts for myself and family so my labels are pretty simple. If this quilt is yours, then you can just put your name, the name of the quilt design/pattern and date it. If I'm making it for a specific family member then I add To and From and maybe the holiday given, i.e. birrthday...

  • Labeling a quilt? I've never done one. Need suggestions.

    I'm entering a quilt into my first quilt show and they require the quilt to be labeled. And then at my first Quilt Guild meeting, everyone was saying I should label all my quilts. I could do a simple one, but would love to hear what others do.

  • Labelling storage

    Just saw a show today on tv showing the use of chalkboard contact paper and thought about our sewing studios, and all those boxes, clear plastic tubs etc. we use for our fabric storage. Just cut a rectangle of this awesome sticky back chalkboard, write your title on label, and best yet- it is re-positionable...

  • Quick Quilt Labels

    When I buy new pillows or bedding, I cut off the DO NOT REMOVE UNDER PENALTY OF LAW labels. These are now almost always printed on nonwoven, tear-proof fabric. Save them for emergency quilt labels. Sometimes extra info is needed for a display or show, or there just isn't time to make a nice label...

    [quote user="Diane Morgan"]Do Sharpie pens work o.k.?[/quote] 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.

  • Re: Label

    [quote user="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...

  • Re: How do you label?

    I usually machine embroider a label, and personalize it to the quilt recipient. If it's a baby quilt, I get the date of birth, name of the baby, and ask the parents if there is a special quote they'd like to add. In smaller font, I'll embroider my name as the maker. Then I just hand sew it...
