Monika over at My Sweet Prairie does weekly quilting tips, inviting others to join her and add to the topic of the week in the comments section. Take a look – her tips are great!
This week, the subject is Labels – and she tells us why, and where to apply labels, and what information to put on the label. In the comments, I added some thoughts on where to get labels – and am following up the topic today with an expansion on my comment.
The labels in Monika’s pictures were very simple – a piece of fabric, printed with the required information. I’d suggest ironing the fabric onto freezer paper to make it more stable while printing.
If you want something a little more elaborate, there are several options:
Simply cut out, print the information, and add to your quilt.
2. There are also pre-made labels, like clothing tags These don’t have all of the information that typically is found on a quilt label, but can be useful in some situations.
3. Search on-line for label templates, print onto fabric and voila! These are some that I found a number of years ago at www.victorianaquiltdesigns.com – and I checked today, they’re still there:
Next week, I’ll do a tutorial on how to print on fabric, without the cost of buying pre-treated fabric sheets.
Happy labelling! Blessings, Peg
