    Embroidery label--the back of it?

    Ladies,
    I googled and searched here and couldn't find a photo. I've made an embroidered label. Now I need to trim it and attach to my quilt. Does someone have a photo of how much of the stabilizer I should trim off? If so, please share.

    My label is all words except for 2 hearts.

    Any advice? I'm afraid to trim off too much and was really hoping to find a photo so I ensure I understand what to trim.

    Thanks

    I remove as much of the stabilizer as possible so it's not stiff.

    I remove all stabilizer if I use it at all, I usually just starch the piece of fabric stiff that I'm going to use to embroider my label and hoop it..been doing this for years now.

    If you don't trim the stabilizer, then when the quilt is washed is the label bunched up because of it not being trimmed?
