    Professionally made CARE LABELS for your quilts

    I found a wonderful source for 3 x 3 inch Quilt Care labels, from the source in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Good prices, too, and you can buy one or many. Check it out, these are recognized and approved by Harriet Hargreave.

    Great site for those gorgeous quilts you all make. I think my labels would read... "Wash in cold water, dry on low heat setting and use until it falls apart!" LOL. None of my quilts are fancy enough to require that much elaborate care. Great site for the high end quilts.

    Great labels, but folks I give quilts to wouldn't use that much water. Plus I can just see someone in a hurry forgetting to turn off the washer and sticking their arm in the washer and having a mishap. Being a public school teacher for 31+ years makes me look for trouble before it happens! So I'll stick to my homemade labels for now.

    If you have an embroidery machine, you can make your own labels. I agree it's a great site but nobody I know would go to those lengths with a quilt. I would just put wash in cold water, medium spin and dry on low.
