Post Label on minky?? Quick ?...

Can anyone offer any advice on how to add a label to a quilt with a minky backing? It is already quilted and ready for binding and a label. Thank you for any advice!

i would sew two edges of your label into the binding. then i would whip stitch the other side[s] to the minky being careful not to go through to the front

I recently did a flannel and milky throw. I decided to put the label on the front flannel, but tried to do it discreetly. I used a hexi flower out of coordinating flannel.

I've put many labels on Minky fabric -- I do it the exact way I do all my other labels. Hand stitched to the binding and minky on the other 2 sides.

How about a square cut in half to make a triangle. If you google triangle quilt label there is lots of info. Here is one http://blog.patsloan.com/2014/03/pat...-tutorial.html

Here is my finished label. I used my embroidery machine to make it and then I followed all your advice just put it in the corner so it was stitched down on two sides with the binding and then hand stitched the other two. It wasn't any different than a label on cotton. Thank you for all your help! image.jpg
