    On a Reversable Quilt

    Where would one put the label? I'm not planning to make one myself, but this question popped into my head the other day.

    Some people make small triangular labels and stitch them into a corner so the binding catches two sides of the label. I've also heard of putting the label information on the binding (sort of the way the manufacturer's name is on the selvage edge).

    where ever you want. I've created labels that were part of a block on the top of a quilt, made labels part of the design on the back, made embroidered/appliqued labels that were framed and centered on the back- machine embroidered a 'continuous label' all the way around the outer edge of a quilt- just inside the binding, and put labels behind a hanging sleeve---labels can be 'hidden' or part of the design---you can be as creative- or secretive as you desire and place your label anywhere you want to

    Someone posted a tutorial on QB on using the machine letters from their machine to put the name and date on the binding. I thought it was a super idea and plan to use it on my next binding.

    I had this problem when I made my reversible quilt. I usually print one on my computer and sew it on the back in the bottom corner. I ended up using the built-in letters on my machine and sewed them on the binding before I sewed the binding on the quilt.

    I quit fooling with labels years ago, I sign on the bottom front lower right hand corner of the quilt itself.

    Good question, and the above answers have my mind runnning. I love the binding idea. Can also see you putting a label on front and back - maybe include a line about why you choose the pattern for each side?

    I made a queen size reversible quilt and made one of the blocks on the "backside" the label. It is the same size as the rest of the blocks, but it is a label instead.
