    I was wondering how you ladies (gentlemen?) feel about quilt labels? Do you make your own?

    My first try was this past weekend(7 tries). I didn't do so well. Managed to mess up my machine some how. Will try again, just not real soon.

    I try to make a label for every quilt I do. It's just a matter of sewing them onto the quilt. Right now I have a pile of labels that need to be attached.

    I didn't do labels for my first few quilt, but after reading about them here I have started to do them.

    I always put a label, but I am hoping to learn some new ways to make labels. One way to avoid having to hand sew the label on is to sew one on across the corner with the quilt binding, catching it on the two edges. I think that sounds nice and easy so I am going to try that. I know people make beautiful labels with their embroidery machines, too. I would love to do that for special quilts. :-)

    Sometimes I use labels that are preprinted (sold like panels on fabric) and sometimes I will make an extra block of what is on the front of the quilt and use a micro-fiber pen to put the info on the block and applique it to the back of the quilt. If all the blocks are biggies (12" finished or bigger) I will either do a miniture version of that block or go with a preprinted label or cut a square of a fabric that was used in the quilt. No matter which option I choose, I write all the quilt info on like name of quilt, year of completion, dedication if there is one and then sign my name. All with the special permanent pen used for fabric.

    Klue; How do you make sure the ink will be permanent, from the printer? Will it smug or wash out?

    I sure do. And I put my entire life story on them too.
    Number of quilt, the name I gave it, it's size, when completed, and some story about how I chose the hand quilting pattern.
