1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to label quilt on: March 21, 2012 02:33:52 AM
Thanks for the long, detailed answer. I had already seen this tutorial: http://www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quiltypleasures/2010/07/a-quick-quilt-label-method-and-a-giveaway/

which is basically the same as you said, and I agree, it gives great results. I love how professional it looks. But a) the baby could be born any day, and I would have to order the printable fabric, not knowing how long it would take to arrive and b) it's not cheap, and I would rather not spend even more money on quilting until I know it's something I really will stay interested in. I've already bought so much stuff! (e.g. rotary, cutting mat, quilting ruler)

Does anybody know of the best fabric markers? Any other methods?

Hi everyone! I've been lurking on the quilting board for a long time.

I'm halfway through my first real quilt (I have a half-finished tester quilt made up of an old sheet but it was a total disaster, so it's been buried for good). My aunt is 8 1/2 months pregnant so I'm running out of time to make the baby quilt, although what I've done I'm happy with. I have the top done, now I just have to baste and sew it up, but I wanted to figure out how I'll label it in case I should do so before quilting.

How do you label them? I've seen lots of 'marker pen' signatures, as well as fancy embroidered or appliqud patches. I'd like something quite simple, and obviously washable. Hope you can help! I'll post pictures of the quilt as soon as I'm done.
