    I'm not sure if that is what they are called... I've seen quilts that have a little ribbon type tag with writing/embroidery on it attatched to the binding and was wondering if anyone knew if they were made of cotton or ribbon? I would like to start putting them on my quilts.
    Thanks to everyone in advance!

    Those are usually made from twill tape, which is kind of a woven ribbon. You can stamp them yourself with fabric ink and a letter stamper or there are places that will print them for you. These are more popular in the scrapbooking world ....

    Here is a site that will print them for you:

    http://www.twilltape.com/servlet/the...ape/Categories

    Never tried this site myself, but it looks like he has done a lot of business and gotten positive reviews.

    Cheers!
