    Same here! I don't attach a label to any of my charity quilts.

    a whole lot of ideas here. the quilt fairy I'd like to use. may I? That is a favorite since my quilts are for children. Thanks !
    my initials are obscene.. ha ha.. young and dumb after getting married and keeping my maiden name.. someone should have told me !
    and, no I don't want anyone googling me to find if I can quilt another one. I do all my stuff at my own pace, slow like the tortoise.

    I always sign, date, city, state, etc., with a perm. marker, on the area that the binding covers up. I do this to document the quilt. On other quilts I make and attach a label--I read somewhere that a lot of the older quilts were done this way. Folks back in the "good ole days" were a lot more modest than us folks, :)

    I see no reason not to sign your name, put on a date, and maybe a Bible verse or favorite saying. I'm not worried about being "stalked" or "harassed" by a veteran or someone in a nursing home. And I'm not looking for recognition or future customers. (Just a few things another poster felt was a concern to her.) But there is nothing wrong (in my own opinion) with putting this info on a quilt even when for charity.

    An artist painting a picture to donate would still put their signature on the canvas. I think of all the antique quilts we have today that have no signature and what a loss that is. I don't think those ladies thought their quilts would ever be so valued or sought after as they are today and maybe ours never will be, but should they survive into the next century, I think it would be for posterity to have this info on the quilt, if for no other reason. :-D

    Ultimately, it's a personal choice with no right or wrong answer. Just do what feels right and you can't go wrong. :D

    Our group puts a label on all of our quilts. We make them and they say:
    Love and Comfort To You
    Coos Sand 'n Sea Quilters
    "Quilts For Giving"
    Oregon

    I also put a label on each quilt that I make.

    Our Guild has a label that we put on each quilt we give. It has the Guilds name, City and State, that way they can send a thank you if they desire.

    For every quilt I make, even the two I donated to auctions I sew in a washable label, and embrodiered initials in a corner. There isn't any thing someone can find out about you that can't be found on the internet.

    I write on the face of the hanging sleeve, the charity, when, where, whatever I want to say. I use a permanent pen. There is lots of space if the quilt has many contributors to its construction.
    This is in addition to a regular label.

    One of group who is very talented makes a label with the name of our group and Co,State. She puts one on every quilt we give out.

    My mother had the initials V.D. Gore until she was 14 and switched her first and middle names around. And her father a doctor, too.

    I'm not worried about anyone googling me, I don't put my real name on the internet. And I imagine that the incidence of quilt-related stalking is quite low!
