    Is there a particular area of the quilt you will put a label on? I am new to this and would like some input.

    I usually put mine in the lower right corner on the back. No real reason, just where I put them.

    I usually attach my label to the lower right. Your eyes naturally rest to the right...

    I like to put my label on the lower right or lower left corner right before I hand stitch the binding down to the back so that I only have two sides of the label to hand stitch once I finish hand-stitching the binding.

    I put my name, city and state and the year (s)the quilt was made on a label sewn on the lower right corner on the back.
    Another label with the name of the quilt and for whom it was made is sewn on the lower left side.

    Sometimes they're hand embroidered labels, other times I print labels on pre-treated fabric with my logo.

    I use a embroidered quilt label. It usually goes in the right bottom corner sometimes the left.

    Me too for the lower right hand corner. That way when I take a pic I can just flip the corner for the pic.

    I put my labels on the lower right corner of the back. I either write on the backing fabric with an extra-fine point permanent fabric pen or sew on a label BEFORE quilting, that way the labels can't be removed without a lot of work!

    I've been working mine into the patterns in the front. Generally the lower right corner though.

    I usually hand stitch my labels on the lower right corner. They're generally 4 inches high and 5-6 inches wide. I hand print the info using a fine, permanent marker. I always include quilt title, my name, year, size (width x height). Anything else that I think is important to remember (occasion, name of recipient, name of anyone else who added to the quilt) I include on the label. I usually write the info then trim the fabric and press the folded edges. Learned the hard way that cutting first may mean starting over!

    Size is determined by where I can work it in on quilt. Recipient, my name and year is all that I put on them.

    I don't use a label.I make a small fabric envelope and I always put a little note in the envelope with what I want to say to that special person that I give my quilts to.I make the envelope using the same fabric that is in the quilt top.I sew it to a corner.Then I make a pillow case to put it in when I give it as a gift.
