Quilt Label Ideas

 My friend Jackie Kunkel (Canton Village Quilt Works)
travels extensively with her quilts.
She is a Nationally Certified Judy Niemeyer Teacher,
has her own on-line store,
and her personal quilt designs
are published often
in major quilt magazines and books.
 With all of the traveling in and out of airports,
winding her way through many States,
there is always the risk of baggage loss or mix ups.
Labeling a quilt properly is
for safe return.
I was curious to see how Jackie 
tackles this challenge.
 I was especially interested to see that she 
takes a picture of her quilt 
to place on each label.
(great idea!)
Also included:
The Name of the Quilt
Her name/ including Home Town and State
Date Made
The Quilters Name
Pattern Designer's Name

 Jackie prints her labels
EQ Printables
Inkjet Fabric Sheets
from the
that can be found
The printables come in several fabric choices 
from Regular Cotton to 
Premium Cotton Satin
and also available
in various sheet sizes, too.
Sometimes we drag our feet in labeling our quilts,
but it really is the final 
and very important step
in saying our quilt is finished
and ready to travel into 
this big wide world.

I still need to make a label for the last quilt or two that I did, I used to be really good about it.

I dislike making labels but I have a plan for doing so, I hope. I would think most of us don't have to worry about traveling quilts. :o) Just the mystery of the maker upon our death.

I like how she includes the photo of her quilt on the label.

Great idea! Thank you for the information. I am so lax in labeling my quilts.

I really should be better at this than I am. Thanks for sharing how Jackie does it. She is such a talented quilter. I really admire her work and shop often at her store.
