I am in the process of making some lap quilts for xmas gifts for my husbands family and am looking for suggestions on how to label them. Pictures of the quilts to come.

I put quilt labels into the search button and there are a ton of topics on it.

Depending on how fancy you want to get (how much you want to pay) with your labels, there is someone here who embroiders them with a machine. She does a beautiful job, and they can be designed to go along with your quilt. I'll see if I can find out who, or if any one remembers who it is.

For most of my quilts I use plain muslin. I draw lines in black marker on a piece of freezer paper and iron it to the back of the label so I'll have lines to write my text on. When I'm done I peel the freezer paper off. I use Pigma pens to write with(the .5mm) and heat set with an iron set on cotton.

Hand written on the lower right corner of the quilt. Quilt name (if approrpiate) my name and date.

I label every quilt that I give away. The ones still here in the house have not received the privilege.

I ordered my first quilt label from a wonderful lady on the board. Her name is GailR and she makes amazing labels on her embroidery machine for a very good price. I usually put my labels on the lower right corner of the back.

A dear friend had some made for me that says: "An original by and my first and last name.
I would prefer not to put a label on them.
