    Do you machine embroider quilt labels?

    I have a Brother PE770 and would like to embroider my quilt labels. However, I can't find a font smaller than 1/2 inch and I don't want my labels that big. Can anyone recommend a font that is closer to 1/4" or even smaller? Thanks for the help.

    Anna Bove has this one: http://www.annaboveembroidery.com/misc.html

    Embroidery Designs has several. When you find one you like, click it and it will give you the size. They all vary in size: http://www.embroiderydesigns.com/Fon...roidery%20font

    I've ordered from both these sites. If you Goggle Miniature Embroidery Fonts, you will get a bunch of sites that have them. There are some great deals out there!
    Chocolate is the Answer. Who cares what the question is.

    I am going to keep a close eye on this thread, I've had the same question for a while now. I can't seem to get an answer regarding tiny font letters for quilt labels.

    Here are 2 that I did on my Bernina - they were about 1/2". I just kept reducing the regular font until I had the size I wanted.

    I embroidery all my quilt labels and also make some for other folks. I got the frame design from Embroidery Library. My machine has built in fonts, so I usually use those...however you can find lots of fonts at Embroidery Library as well.
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Thanks for the tips. My machine has built in fonts too, but they are larger than I like. I tried embroidery library, even sent an email last night and got a reply to look at their fonts and the help page. No help there. I'll try the miniature font idea.

    Love your butterfly label. Where did your designs come from. I have a butterfly quilt waiting for a label.

    I am new to embroidery. How do you keep your lines even, straight and lined up when using the embroidery machine design your label? I do not have a separate computer program for this. I also have a brother embroidery only machine that does the 4x4 only. I sure could use a lot of help. I purchased the machine just for quilt labels.

    I use embird and bought some labels from Emblibrary.com. With Embird I bought a few of the fonts, including the redwork ones They can go small enough for labels.Name:  julia's label.JPG
