    I only have one quilt label book but I can't find just the right label for my quilt. I was wanting for everyone who helped hand quilt it to sign it (5 women) but I didn't want to make a huge label. Any suggestions on a good quilt label book?

    I'm certainly not a pro with quilting, but couldn't you iron some muslin or similar material to freezer paper and have your quilting helpers sign it...then you could size the label (before or after signing). I plan to try this with a quilt I am making for a wedding, and have guests sign block that have been adhered to freezer paper. I even through of using a rubber stamp for decoration. Let me know what you think.

    Thanks! I thought I might do it all on paper and then scan it into my computer and then run the fabric on freezer paper through my printer. I was just wanting some vines or something to go around the top and sides or some sort of flowery ornamentation.

    I make all my labels on the computer. Be sure to heat set the ink once it has printed.... same with signatures (use pigma pens). When you heat set make sure there is NO water in the iron. You want a dry iron. Barb C.

    hi! If your sewing machine has an alphabet feature I like to embroider out my quilt label. I used to use a permanent marker but I like the look of a "sewn out" label so much better. You could do this on your backing fabric before you quilt it and the label will be there permanently!

    Thanks for all these ideas!! I do have an alphabet on my sewing machine. I have a Bernina 440QE without the embroidery card, but I can do some alphabet. I already quilted my quilt so that's one reason that I didn't want a huge label.

    When making your labels, do you use photo transfer paper and print to that, or do you use material that is ironed to freezer paper?
    Thanks, Sibble

    I just use fabric that has been ironed to freezer paper.
