I've done a variety of different label styles in my 'career' as a quilt hobbyist - everything from handwriting on white fabric with sharpie markers to computer-printed on printable fabric. I've tried using my Janome 6500 special embroidery function to sew letter right on to the binding. This is a technique I learned from Sharon Pederson (http://sharonpederson.blogspot.ca/).

I've just ordered some custom made labels from Sweetwater. This is yet a new quilt label technique for me. I'm excited to receive them in the mail. In the meantime, I'm working on printing some on printable fabric. I need to label a few baby quilts to deliver, all my show quilts and my "Winter Solstice" and "Tennessee Waltz" quilts that I blogged about here.
I am still recuperating from my broken foot and am elevating as much as I can and resting, resting, resting. I would rather be quilting, quilting, quilting...but I need to do this right. I need my feet working so I better just get with the healing program and be a good girl. But I can do hand sewing and I think that's a perfect time to label some quilts, don't you?
Until next time,
