    I am making a donation quilt for a children's hospital and was wondering if you are supposed to put a label on the back of it with any information about who made it, designed it and quilted it.
    Could I just put some kind of a message on it for the special child receiving it?
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I don't put a label, probably because I am just too lazy. Your idea of a special message I think would be wonderful.

    Our Guild does them. The label says

    Our Guild attaches a label with logo and number. We keep a log book of the quilt and where it's donated.

    labels are always appropriate.
    the label should also carry fiber content- and care instructions...
    as in 100% cotton fabrics, Poly batting
    machine wash cool- tumble dry
    or what ever the fiber/care is

    Thanks for the tip. I am making a lap quilt as a wedding gift.

    The volunteer office at my local hospital has labels to put on the quilts. They require this rather than a personal label. I do not put my name and other personal information on the label. Why don't you call the hospital and ask if they have requirements.
    I always put my initials with permanent ink in a corner on the back or stitch the initials if dark fabric.

    I think the idea of putting a little personal message on the label is a good one, you could include date and location it was made along with your initials.
