    I made a baby quilt form a "quilt panel" I purchased.
    I'd like to add the babies name.
    Do you embroider the name directly onto the quilt or make a "label" to attach ?

    I thought of embroidering the name onto a coordernating fabric & then hand sew onto the lower fron corner.
    Or, do you typically attached to the label onto the back of the quilt ?

    Thank you in advance for your help !

    I've done it both ways, but prefer to do it straight on the quilt. Much easier

    I embroider the information on the quilt top before I add the batt and backing. If the quilt is already done I make a label and sew it on the back

    I just made my first one! I embrodered her name and a heart in the corner, before it was quilted, right on the flannel.
