Default Mixed animals ispy style quilt

My animal quilt is basically completed! This is my first quilted quilt, and the binding is a little odd . . . . I apparently got crazy and made it double sided, and used the binding to make both sides match up better!

I still have a couple steps with a few questions --

I still need to appliqué a label. Any suggestions on good fabric pens or good techniques for a situation where labeling was forgotten until after binding and machine embroidery isn't an option? Also I need to name the thing!

I also wash it so I can make sure all my stitches stay put and see how it shrinks/puffs. I didn't do prewashing and used Hobbs 80/20 batting. Just throw it in on warm with gentle detergent and a color catcher? I read about using a vinegar soak to help set colors -- any thoughts on that?

Yes; warm wash, gentle detergent, and color catchers if you wish. Vinegar won't set the colors, so I'd leave it out.

Wonderful quilt!

Love your quilt....front and back!! and that Winnie the Pooh fabric....checked right away and found some on Etsy so got a yard. Wish the pics would give the option to enlarge like they used to so I could save a large version of the pics. I know you can do the ctrl/scroll thing but if you save it, it's still only the size shown. You have such a great assortment of fabrics in it!
