    How do you make a quilt label? Are they made as an embroidery applique?
    Thanks

    I handwrite mine on muslin, turn the edges under and blanket stitch it to the quilt with pearl embroidery cotton. An embroidered one would be very nice, but I don't have the right machine for that.

    I design mine in word, then print it out on muslin backed with freezer paper with my laser printer

    I embroider mine right on the backing before I put it together

    This is how I do mine...
    Just the top, bottom and sides of the middle part gets sewn on to the quilt so it always opens like a little envelope.

    I design mine in MS Publisher and print on bleached muslin/freezer paper, then slip stitch it to the back of the quilt. I also print and attach a label for my longarmer.

    I usually do this and sometimes put a picture with it, just depends on who it's for and how tired I am . . . .

    What a great idea. I'll have to try that and see if I can get it positioned right. Do you put it any place special - one corner?

    I have some iron-on (June Taylor, I think) material that I run through my printer after designing a label in word.

    But I am waiting on an embroidery machine to be delivered (ordered it today!) so may try that next time!
