    Quilt Labels

    How do you all make quilt labels for your quilts? I use a Mac computer. I have a really old HP quilt label program but it is not supported by Apple. I haven't been able to find a newer one that works with apple. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks Pati

    I have a bunch of fabric labels that I write on w/ a black sharpie marker. Sometimes I have made a label out of coordinating fabric....I don't use a computer - I don't like a papery label on a fabric project..

    i cross stitch them.

    quilts usually find their names as i go along, so i use that, my name, completion date and sometimes something else; a picture or something cute.

    I use my HV,SE...and embroider them and make them like "patches" and then hand stitch them on.
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    I have handwritten them in Sharpie on a piece of coordinating fabric, or a small quilt square. I have also printed them on fabric and then hand sewn them to the quilt. I have to admit, though, that I'm not very good about putting a label on every quilt.... I know, I know!!

    I usually design the label in EQ7 and then print it onto fabric. With EQ it's easy to print blocks on the label (as a border usually) that match the blocks on the quilt. I can also download photos into the label, so it's very personalized.

    Becca - using the printer to print on fabric doesn't give you a papery label at all.

    I bought a little book a long time ago that has different quilt labels that you color and fill in the information. I also have some that came from a yard of fabric that was full of labels. However, I have also done them through the computer, and then gone over the print with a pigma pen. I've also gotten clip art that I like and make a frame, add the text to the center, and usually print it out on paper. Then I use my light box to put it on fabric. I have used a variety of pigma pens, gel pens-gelli roll, and ones that are not metallic. I usually paint them with pigment ink, iron and then attach to the back of the quilt.

    If it is an applique quilt I make a small flower, or animal and then put the writing on the fabric with it. Another possibility is to make one of the blocks, outline, miniaturize it then paint with pigma ink pens.
