She had a friend help her with the French Knots who also knows Braille. Alma's niece also stitched in German the names of all those who helped work on the quilt. She hand embroidered along the quilt lines echoing the information. It's almost invisible because the thread is only about 2 shades lighter than the material. I thought that was very clever. So if you run across a quilt anytime that feels really nubby, it just might be labeled in Braille!
    Now THAT is going the extra mile. What a thoughtful niece.

    That's the nicest thing I've heard in a long time. What a thoughtful and clever niece!

    I love creative labels, but it does take planning.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I love this idea. I have not been good about labeling my quilts. This method would encourage getting it done. Thanks for sharing.

    Darling label. I wondered about adding before quilting but I was afraid (I was going to use much closer quilting) that you would not be able to read it.
