Today’s tip is labels!! They not only offer a polished finish to your project, but also mark the maker. One of my resolutions this year was to be better about labeling my projects. There are lots of options to order custom labels, but here’s what I do! I order from Spoonflower. They’re a great company right here in North Carolina. I just uploaded my logo and set it to repeat. For my pouches and other small projects, I order a fat quarter of twill. My logo is approximately 1 1/4″ wide with plenty of white space above and below.
The twill is recommended for dry clean only, so I limit it to projects that aren’t often washed. I fuse wonder under to the back. And trim them up!
I cut some tight with just the logo.
But I love that I’ve got the option to write labels as well.
For my quilts, I ordered the Kona cotton base cloth. It’s machine washable. My logo is about 2 1/2″ and I added three faint grey lines for my additional information. I label my quilts with the name, recipient, piecer, quilter and date.
Remember to mark the maker!
