How to Label Your Finished Quilts

A good quilt label will identify your quilt and it’s a great way to give its story a little extra something.

Ways to Label Your Quilt

Today, I’m going to show you over 8 ways to label your quilts but first a little bit about why you should!

Just like a painter or a photographer will sign their work, a quilter should absolutely “sign” their work as well. It is a work of art after all!


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.

Make extra sure your label doesn’t fade by tracing over a printable fabric label.

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.

If all of this seems like too much hard work you might consider buying a custom-made quilt label from a small business seller on Etsy.
