    Quilt Labels (my way)

    Over in the Main Forum there's a question about Labels. I also use muslin and frame it out in the same backing fabric. Sometimes I trace special meanings out of a label book. I also sew it onto the back "before" quilting. It's almost impossible to remove in case of theft.

    Thanks everyone. I doubt any of my quilts will ever for stolen. If any should last 100 yrs then someone will know who, what and when. LOL

    Love the label. My neighbor asked me to come over to look at the quilt her niece sent her to help her find the label. Alma is 90% blind due to diabetes. When she found she was going blind she studied Braille. God Bless her niece! She labeled the quilt in Braille with French Knots so it could be read. 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!
