Labels

There was mention of how to make labels on the HeartStrings group this morning, so I uploaded a few pictures to a new webshots album of older ones I've done.  I like to use MS Word to create labels and occasionally use the WordArt feature.  Sometimes I use a picture of the quilt or fabric as a background for the text.  Stitching a small *binding* around the stiff label fabric helps when sewing it to the quilt.

I used to sew frames around the label too but most of the time now I sew the label in a corner and just stitch down two sides.

I particularly like your quilt with the light background and jewel colours - the backing fabric is perfect :)

Labels are my downfall and biggest failure as a quilter. Out of the 50 some quilts I've finished, 3 have labels. I must improve on that!
