    I just bought a new machine with embroidery module. I want to make my own labels for quilts. What font would work the best? Anyone have any tips for making labels?

    I use a small one on mine make sure you back it with stabilizer, I use a tear away. I usually use the curvy one on mine but not knowing your machine or what choices you have do some sample stitching to see what one you like.

    I have about 30 different alphabets to choose from on the embroidery software. Names are similiar to the ones in word. Do you know the name of the font?

    I would do a sample of some of them. I am sure we don't have all the same fonts!! I usually do a different for each of my labels.
