Default Memory quilt label question

I made this quilt from a coworkers hubby's dress shirts. Her hubby of 45 years passed away at the age of 69. Does anyone have a nice quilt label idea? Do I put his full name? Should my name also go on it? DOB/DOD dates?

I have made something else years ago with this saying on it...."Because someone we love is in heaven, there is a little bit of heaven in our home" I want to have embroidered labels and thought it might be too long. Your thoughts will be helpful!!!

Great job on the quilt. I'm sure she will adore it.

I made quilted stars for my Mother and all of my 5 siblings in memory of my Dad. They were made out of his clothes. Following below is the link to the star which has a pic of the label I made. I created it on my computer and printed it on fabric. Hoping that my quilted creations will be passed to other generations, I make a concerted effort to label everything I make. My quilts have much more information.

I think it would be acceptable to place your name as the designer/quilter on the label. Good luck.

I love your design as well as the picture and wording on the label.

What a lovely top and tribute. I have only made one memory quilt from my BIL's shirts for my SIL. I used a muslin heart for the label,and hand-wrote the info: In Loving Memory of -------, birthday and date of death. I did not include my name. This one was not about me.

The design of the quilt made me think of hugs and kisses --- circles and "x"s. What a great quilt.
