Labeling and displaying your quilts is a very important quilt care tip that often goes overlooked.The purpose of labeling is documentation, so as the quilt is handed down in the family you will know who made it and when, who it was made for, the pattern name, or any history surrounding quilt.
I wish I had been more alert to labeling when I had begun quilting. To often in the shop we come across beautiful quilts that where never labeled, they have a since of mystery to them. Where did it come from? How old is it? who made it and why? Was it a gift? Is it from your family? Maybe its store bought!!!!???
My favorite way to label a quilt is to have one custom embroidered.
Do not forget to leave your first and last name, year, who it was made for!
If you choose to do the custom embroidery you can choose your fabric, the color, and font.
I know my handwriting is hard to read!
PLUS if you use a marker or pen with time it may fade.
THINK OF THE FUTURE!
