Spark Your Imagination with These Great Ideas!
Occasionally we come across a quilt label that causes us to stop and take a second (and third) look. While every quilt you complete you should have a label, taking the time to create something unique to the quilt will make the quilt extra special.
Here are some quilt labels that caught our eye. Some may have a tutorial available at the maker’s website, but most don’t. We’re sharing them for inspiration.
The following label by Heather Acton makes creative use of an old hankie. It’s from an excellent article on Creative Quilters about what to put on labels, along with many creative ideas for making them. Read the article here.
This beautiful label from Wendys Hat is cross stitched.
Here’s a sweet label made for a first quilt. Found on Foxglove Accessories.
This clever label found on Handicrafty Sisters is made using the pocket from an old pair of jeans. It goes great with the predominantly denim blue quilt.
Here’s a beautiful label on a signature quilt (found on Persnickety Quilts). The front of the quilt is signed by each person in the group.
This beautiful quilt label was found on Summer Fete. We’d like to see the maker’s name included, instead of selfsewn.
We like how this label is sewn into the binding. The quilt was found on Crafty Quilter.
Make an extra quilt block to affix to the back and use a permanent marker to write info in white (or light) spaces. This example was found on All People Quilt.
This sweet label found on Sew Sweet Violet is hand embroidered.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
