For the love of a Quilt Label

My friend, Jill, came to visit a couple weeks ago and naturally we talked about quilts.  It turns out she has several quilts, some handed down from her family and some she purchased at estate auctions. Guess what? None of them has a label!  Oh this cannot go on!  We pulled out my label making box and we made labels, lots of labels.

Now that was fun!  I sent her home with a Ziploc baggie of labels and now as she puts each quilt back in her closet (each inside a pillowcase) she will sew a label on each one.

Every quilt deserves a label no matter if you made it, your grandma made it, or you purchased it at an auction or garage sale. Most of the ones above were made from a printed panel that you simple cut apart or you can make your very own.  Who made it? Who is it made for? Occasion? Year? Because, who knows where this quilt will end up in 20, 30, or 40 years from now?  Every quilt has a story to tell – so tell it.
