    on your name tags

    Do you just say "Made by xxxx" or what do you put on it if you do the piecing and have the quilting done by someone else??

    I say
    Pieced or appliqued or assembled by [my name]
    Quilted by [quilter's name]
    Nancy in western NY
    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Ditto to QuiltNNan .. also don't forget to give credit to the pattern/designer.

    That's what I do too
    I used to hand embroider all my labels - no more
    Found sewnsewer2 on this Board and she's been doing my labels since.
    Machine embroidered, wonderful work, very reasonable.

    Except a whole lot of designers use block patterns that have been in the public domain for years and years so who knows who actually designed the pattern.

    Agreed!
    And too, I seldom follow a pattern to the "T", making my own changes.
    So the wording I have used is ...

    Adapted from a ___(name)_____ pattern

    I have some my late friend had made for me several years ago. I have used some but, not on every quilt I make. I expect them to remember I gave them to them.
