Labelling Your Quilt
You should add a label to your quilt; after all it might still be around in 100 years and someone will want to know who made it and when. Quilt labels should give your name, the original name of the quilt, any name you give it, the source of the pattern and the place and year it was made, plus some care instructions. For example:
Jane Smith, Sydney Aus, 2017
from “My Quilt Obsessions” by Mary Bloggs
For my sister Olivia
100% Cotton outer. 87.5%/13.5% cotton-poly internal batting.
Gentle, warm machine wash, mild detergent.
Dry in shade. Tumble dry warm. Hot iron.
The label can be printed onto specially treated fabric (available at most quilting stores). It is then sewn into the binding on two sides and hand sewn down on the other two sides after the quilt is finished.
