8 Quilt Labeling Techniques and Why You Should!

Quilters use labels to tell the story of the quilt, share some words of wisdom, a special message, maybe even include a special poem or a prayer, and so much more. 

Materials used:

– Embroidery – Pigma pen – Ink jet printer – Preprinted labels – Twill tape – Freezer tape

Method 1:  Machine Embroidery

If you already have a special embroidery machine you are laughing! Just choose a design and what you want to include on your label and you’ll be done in no time.

Method 2:  Hand Embroidery

You can make hand-embroidered labels using an ordinary piece of quilting cotton, an embroidery hoop and some embroidery floss.

You can actually make hand-written quilt labels. You can write directly onto a piece of fabric (or even the quilt backing) with a fine-tipped permanent marker.

Method 3:  Fabric Pens

Pigma Micron pens are widely used for this, but I would suggest doing a test before writing on the quilt backing itself.

Obviously these labels don’t have the crucial information of your name or the date but you can use either fabric pens or embroidery to add those details in.

Method 4: Pre-printed Quilt Label Fabric
