    Now that I have become such a constant quilter, I wonder about adding labels. Surely, many of you can advise me. If anyone makes them to sell, you've got a customer! Dotty

    I have not made any to sell, but I am thinking that you could probably find some to print out somewhere on line.

    I usually make mine with my embroidery machine. As a matter of fact, one is stitching while I'm check the board. You can google "quilt labels" and find several sites where you can print labels. If you use specially treated fabric, they last for a long time. That's the way I made mine before I got my embroidery machine.

    I make mine on my embroidery machine. I'm still learning how to use it.

    Sometimes you can buy labels at JoAnns or Hancock's by the yard, then either embroider or write with a permanent pen(can't remember the brand), and then just attach it. That's what I do and when I find the fabric labels, I buy about a yard or two and that sets me up for quite a while.

    Here's a couple I found on my computer that I have done. The first I made for a quilt made by a friend for a friend who was undergoing cancer treatment.

    The second label is what is on the quilt which is my avatar.

    You can do all kinds of things with them.
