Do you label your quilts?  I overheard a discussion to do labels or not do labels?
A quilt is not really finished without a label.  It's like a signature of your
creativity.  Yes, it takes more time but everyone has found that "quilt" without a label and wonder, who made it, what year, was it a gift???  Quilt labels can be easy to make and there are many ways to do them. 
Basically, a quilt label is a piece of fabric with information about the quilt and the 
maker sews it on the back or sometimes on the front!  There are not rules  to follow and you may be as creative as you want or as simple as you would like.  Some labels
are very simple with name and date, others go on, and on and on.   Want to try a
label, let us help with your next quilt.
