Quilt Label Service

Did you know that a quilt label is very important and should be a part of every quilt that is made?  No matter how big or small, a quilt label should be on each and every quilt.  After all, most quilts will last a lifetime or longer.  You are making history when you create a quilt so let’s preserve that history so our grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, etc. know who made the quilt they love.

Quilt labels can be made in many ways.  They can be very elaborate and hand made.  They can be printed off a home printer.  They can be hand embroidered or machine embroidered.  And they can even be made just by signing the back of a quilt with a fine point permanent marker. (If you are going to do this, I would highly recommend that you test your permanent marker on a scrap of backing fabric to make sure it is not going to bleed through to the front of your quilt.)

What information should you put on your quilt? 

When deciding what to put on a quilt label ask yourself these questions:
1.  What is the name of the quilt?
2.  Was the quilt made for someone special or an event?
3.  Who pieced the quilt?
4.  Where was the quilt pieced? (City & State)
5.  When was the quilt finished? (Month & Year)
6.  Who quilted it & where was it quilted?  (This is optional) 

Here is a an example of what a quilt label might look like:
