When the binding is on, all you have to stitch by hand is the diagonal folded edge of the fabric. write on it with appropriate pen and you're done. determine the size of square you need by writing out on paper what you want to put on the label then measure, adding seam allowances.
    Thanks that's the best idea yet! I think I could do that. What is the best kind of pen and fabric to use?

    Did you have a rubber stamp made up? With your name and city, state ? Space for who it is for?

    Hand written using gel pens or similar permanent markers.

    joannes has iron on label books- you can press them onto fabric- fill in the blanks with a permenent pen- the iron on transfers can be used more than once & they have a variety of labels, sizes, shapes, occassions to use. they are a good way to go.
    as for minimum content- name of quilt, pattern if you used one- your name, city/state, date (at least month/year) fiber content---and i generally add care instructions.
