Do you label your quilts?
I have always documented and labeled my quilts with at least the name of the quilt, my name and the date. If it is a gift, I add who it is for and maybe the occasion. Sometimes I add my location.
I also keep a running journal and of coarse photos of all the quilts I make and a short paragraph about each quilt, including size and finish date.
Lately, I have fallen behind in labeling.
Since I finished a baby quilt made for a gift, I knew I needed to get busy making some labels.
I used Bubble Jet Set 2000 to set the ink from my printer on the labels.
It is easy to use. I take my muslin (my usual go to label fabric) and soak it in the solution. Ring out the excess and hang it to dry.
Once it is dry, I iron it and then cut it to 8 1/2" x 11". I also cut freezer paper to the same size and iron it on.
At my computer, I search for free clip art that will go with each quilt. I make my labels with the important information on it and then print it out. Here are the ones I made yesterday.
Once they are printed, I iron them again to set and cut them out. I remove the freezer paper and iron under a 1/4" around the label.
The last thing to do is stitch them on! Here are the quilts I finally finished!
