    OK, I finally got my first quilt label done (haven't put a label on my many others).

    When viewing the quilt from the front does it go on the back of the Left side or the back of the Right side??

    I usually put mine on the back on the left side. I don't think it matters. That is just where mine end up.

    It doesn't matter. It's a good habit to get into.

    I have some of my grandmother's quilts and I have no idea when she made them. I also use my full name (with my maiden name) should someone ever want to keep going back in time. Although I doubt that there will ever be another with this name to worry about mixing us up!

    I used to put my label in the lower right hand corner. Now I put it up sort of in the middle. I don't like the label in the corner when I sleeping under the quilt. If I am thinking ahead I sew it on before I quilt, so I can quilt it on that way it can never be removed.

    I never thought about which corner of the back to place them, nor did I ever think about the quilt being turned around and having it in my face. I will have to take this into consideration from now on!!

    I've never thought ahead to sew the label on, before I do the machine quilting. What a good idea! I don't make quilts I sleep under as I make wall quilts, but that's a good point too.

    I have a tendency to put the label towards the center on the backside, but not always.

    Mine is usually in the lower left corner on the back. I don't know why. I just put it there.

    I always use the lower right hand corner. I don't think it matters though.

    I put mine on the lower left side - its kinda like signing a letter to me. I also try to attach it before I quilt it - therefore it is more secure.
