    Do you always put a label on a quilt and what information do you put on it?

    I am horrible about forgetting to label quilts :oops:
    It depends on who it is going to on how much info I include. Charity quilts just get my name, date and state. Other quilts I will add more, depending on the situation :D:D:D

    YES! the basic on every quilt contains the name of the quilt, the date (month and year), fiber content and laundering/care instructions. if it is a personal gift i also add the recipients name and any pertinent info concerning that....oh= and my name

    I never used to, but, since joining the board I have realized how important labels are. So, I put the receipent's name, date of completion, pattern name, and either my full name or initials ( initials if it is going to a family member and I have signed it Mom or Nana)
