I used to handsew my quilt labels on after the quilting was all done. Then I saw somewhere a while ago (Simply Quilts maybe?) that if you put the label on then quilt through it there's less chance of it coming loose or being taken off by someone.
I realize the advice was really meant for quilts that go to be judged and may be stolen. I never send mine out for judging.
So sometimes I quilt first, sometimes I put the label on first.
What do you do?
