    I gave her the quilt last week--I think they loved the label more than the quilt :lol: They were totally overwhelmed since it is their 2nd baby, which of course means I will make them others!

    After many unsuccessful attempts at making my own labels on my Inkjet printer I went to my local quilt shop and bought some Quilter's freezer paper sheets. I also got some Pima cotton and washed it, no soap, just plain water. I had been using the left over fabric from my quilts and freezer paper from the kitchen.

    This is the first time my printer did not jam and I finally got a dozen labels made for the quilts I have floating about. It was very frustrating not being able to label my quilts. The quilt shop owner told me it makes a difference what thickness the freezer paper is and also if the fabric is too heavy it will jam the printer. I can attest to that fact!. What a difference this made! I won't know how long the ink will last but most of the quilts will not get a regular washing anyway. Hopefully when I'm 100 I'll still be able to read the label.

    Of course it could have been operator error all along but............I like to think it was the paper's fault. LOL
