    I have an embroidery machine and I embroidery directly on the back of my quilt (BEFORE it is put together for quilting). I put the name of the person I am making it for with some sort of special message. I finish by saying who pieced it and who quilted it, with the date and city and state in which I live. If you don't have an embroidery machine, use a pigment pen to write your message.

    There are several threads on the QB.

    I print my own with my computer and add a quilting detail using a cut and paste from a scan. I posted how I do mine on the tutes.

    For the rag quilt I am doing I will use embroidery.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    naughty me, I don't label many of my quilts, but when I do I use embroidery machine.
    The purpose of life is to discover your gifts.
    The meaning of life is to give your gifts away with love.

    Hi, I buy old doyleys from charity shops and garage sales and write on those with a permanent pen, then sew onto the backing. I love finding a doyley with embroidery that tones in with my quilt, and also like the idea of giving a new life to an old item that someone has embroidered with love, and mostly is not appreciated any more.

    I do this same thing, embroider on the backing before quilting - with a few differences in the details, I include the 'name' if it has one, the pattern name, date, etc. When I use a Minkee backing, I embroider it on the binding before I sew the binding on.

    I like to name my quilt, if it's a pattern by someone else I include that info as well, if it's a special gift to someone I try to include that info too!

    I prefer to do a corner label and sew it in the seams so it's really secure although I've done more square ones too.

    I used to have a lady who made mine for me. But she's out of the business now so now I need to find another way. Here's an example of one I had done for my DS in the past.
