    Just recently I was finally able to figure out the software program for using the embroidery features on my computer. Now I feel like a kid in a candy store! I want to make labels for my quilts using this feature. Without having to "recreate" the wheel, I am wondering if any of you have a favorite font/style you use for the wording on your quilts. I have only used one so far, and it seemed a little big. By asking this question, I thought it might save me some time and thread. Thanks for your help!

    my machine's software does not name the font, but i like the one that is like Comic Sans MS. It allows me to make the words smaller and I don't really care for the fancy scripts so much... personal preference

    Thanks, I will give it a try. I just wasn't sure where to start on a smaller, less dense font.

    Here are some alphabets that are made for quilt labels. You would have to do your own layout, but they stitch out nicely.

    Thanks for the link. I took a quick look at it and it looks like something I may be able to use. Don't mind doing my own layout.
