I have had several requests for a Quilt Label Tutorial
Let's give it a whirl...
No quilt should leave your arms without a label attached to it.
Years from now people will wonder...did Aunt Sally or Gramma Polly make this quilt?
With a label, there will never be a doubt who created this magnificent family heirloom.
In this tutorial, we will create a
Computer Generated Label
In your word processing program...
Type out your label
Choose your favorite Inkjet Fabric Sheet
(Be sure to use the Sew-In kind, not the fusible)
Place the Fabric Sheet into the Printer Paper Tray
( Remove all of the paper from the tray first )
Hit the PRINT Button...
Here is your printed label ready to be sewn onto a quilt
Trim the label to size...
Trim the excess fabric around the edges.
I leave a half inch beyond the printed words on all sides
Peel off the Backing Paper
Find a scrap of white fabric for the backing on the label
Place the label face down on the backing fabric...
Sew a 1/4 inch all the way around on all 4 sides
DO NOT leave an opening
Trim off the excess backing fabric...
Carefully cut an opening in the backing fabric
DO NOT cut into the front side of the label.....eek!
Trim off the corners
(Don't cut into the stitching)
Turn the label right side out...
Iron it nice and flat...
Pin the label to the back side of the Quilt
Choose a thread that will match the label color
Blind Stitch the label onto the quilt
Don't sew through the top of the label...
Push the needle up through the bottom side of the label
The stitches are hidden and do not show at all
Now you are ready to give away your quilted gift of love
