    The two guilds I belong to hand out a stamped colored square of the block chosen as the guild logo. Members finish them by quilting them and many put them on a lanyard or some type of ribbons to wear necklace style (instead of pinning to clothing). there is room for adding name by permanent pen, embroidery, etc, as well as decorative stitching, etc. Many attach quilt insignia pins collected from major shows or other quilt guilds. Some simply add their name in pen and pin on their shirt (without any finishing), lol.
    Edit to add- One of them also hands out the precut pieces to put a block together then same as above.

    Just wanted to let you know that I've seen the cutest name badges...they were pieced shapes of girls that had arms & legs that hung off badge. Each was made to look like the person...have red curly hair? use red thread or yarn andwrap around knitting needle and then spray with starch These were as cute as can be...names could be put on 'dress' or on border. Add any embellishment you want. Will check file to see if I can find source.

    It is very good idea of making quilted name tags. People looking for loot of ideas for name tags. When we embroidering our name just started with outline stitch and hated that how it is looking and switched to the backstitch.

    I used a practice triangle from my avatar quilt and used puff paint to write my first name on it. We get a ticket at each Quilt Guild meeting if we wear our nametags. Then we have a drawing at the end of the night and win a small quilt related item.

    First we embroideried the name then added crazy patchwork with scraps and machine stitches.
    They have a very light batting.
    Machine applied "binding". No hand work!
    Took maybe an hour??? I did mine at a friend's because I don't have a fun machine that does fancy stitching. :cry: (It's on my wish list)

    You can pin them on or use lanyards that have clips.
    We have some ladies that like to do beading so they made some pretty beaded lanyards.

    Good Luck on your's. Anxious to see what others have done.
    the "Alice" name badge is darling!

    My name tag is missing too! Mine has an appliqued sheep in the center, and then a border which I had a lot of quilting pins on, and my name at the bottom.

    Our guild gives a "suggested" fabric to use in the pin...but not required, so each person can do whatever they want, using that fabric or not. We have given a piece of counted cross stitch fabric with floss in case people want to embroider their name, again, not required. We haven't had a contest, but that is a fun idea!

    Our name tags are required if you want to be eligible to win doorprizes...so, I will have to look hard to see if I can find mine, or make another one before our next meeting in a few weeks.

    Here is my name tag I made for quilt guild meetings. We had a drawing for all members that wore their tag to a meeting on a certain date. I made mine from sewn together scraps cut off to even up a quilt. I added embrodiery with floss, silk ribbon and beads. It only took an hour to make. I have cardboard inside mine.
