What size should a quilt label be?
It’s up to you but the first three items are very important! In terms of size, the choice is yours. My quilt labels are generally about 6 x 4″, with a small allowance for turning the edges under to stitch on the quilt. Leave plenty of room for your written details.
What information do you put on a quilt label?
Some ideas of what you might want to include on the label:
- The name of the quilt.
- The reason it was made – special occasion – holiday, graduation, wedding, birth, friendship,
- Topper’s name.
- Quilter’s name.
- Date and place where it was completed (or maybe even start date if you can remember that far back!)
- Care instructions.
What do you say on a quilt label?
Write or embroider the quilt label information on the quilt backing before quilting.
