    There are several members here who do that. Also if you go up to the search box and type in labels or quilt labels I bet you'll find something and someone who could help.

    There are many ways to make labels. I usually use EQ7 to design the label, then print it on sheets in a package sold by Printed Treasures, which I buy at JoAnn's.

    Sometimes I use the embroidery machine to make labels instead. You can also use a permanent marking pen to hand letter your labels. Lots of options, depending on what you have on hand and what you like to do.

    Other possibilities ... you can buy fabric with pre-printed label "frames" that come in many different designs. then either stitch or write what you want inside the frame.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    ONe note on printed labels. I have discovered that these can fade if you are putting one on a quilt that will be washed. There are things to do to help that problem, some solution you can use, that I forget the name of and also using snuggle to treat them...but again - I don't have the instructions for that. I would also "google" making labels and I bet there are instructions or videos about it.

    I make mine on my embroidery machine. I have also bought some from a quilt shop that are really cute and just put my name on them wiht a laundry marker that won't wash out. I really prefer the ones I make on the embroidery machine and you can buy the designs from Embroidery Library and other embroidery places.
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Hugs,
    Drue

    Thanks for starting this thread - I've been meaning to try some on my machine or have some made by QB members.
