    Do you know if I sign my name on the label? There isn't much room for it. Thanks

    I always put my name on the label, no matter how small. But, there are no rules, so you're free to do whatever you like ;).

    QFKs ask you to name the quilt and put your name on the back of the quilt. For the ones I donate the fabric for I am putting that info and the date on each quilt with my embroidery machine.

    They request first name only. Maybe last initial. They usually provide instructions with their kits and refer specifically to signing the quilts. If you need info - let me know. I have the instructions on hand.

    I try to put the year on gifted quilts for the family with permanent ink with a fine point.

    The Downy Quilts for Kids provided label asks for Quilters First Name and the Quilt Name (e.g.'Stars & Moons'). Their instruction sheet says to sing the label with a permanent fabric marker; place label on back of quilt and sew around all four sides.

    If they send you a kit for the Downy quilt, NJ Quilter is correct. However, I don't have an embroidery machine, and every one of the 4 different marking pens I bought "bleeds" when I use it on the Downy label, and besides, my writing/printing is awful. So, I stitch the label on the quilt and enclose a note asking them to write on it.

    If they send you a "Quilts for Kids" label (not a Downy label), I just attach it to the quilt the way it is. I don't worry about my name. I guess they'll put my name on it if they want to.
