Quilt labels are something I know should go on each quilt I make......and it's also something that I seem to drag my feet on. I think I've tried it all. Stamping, inking, running it through the ink jet printer, photo transfer. I've even simply written the information directly on the quilt back using a pigma pen. But the label always seemed to be lacking. So quilt labels were never my favorite thing to do.....until I got my embroidery machine that is. Now I enjoy making quilt labels. The embroidery program I have allows me to design my label and save it to a stick drive once I'm happy with the design. Then I simply plug the stick drive into my embroidery machine and I'm off!! Pictured above are the latest quilt labels. All were done on the embroidery machine.....and all are ready to be stitched onto their appropriate quilts. I think it's a really fun and creative way to put that final touch onto a quilt.
