is sewing the label on the quilt. It doesn't take all that long to do but I do find it to be a chore. The quilt is done already.....except that it's not.
Since I've been doing so much quilting lately it means that there's a stack of quilts to label and I decided to work on that today.
I've tried many different methods of quilt labeling and I do occasionally label a quilt by writing on it with a Pigma pen but msot of my labels are printed on Bubble Jet Set treated fabric. I like this method because I can easily add photographs to the quilt label. Most often I used an image from the front of the quilt but sometimes I use clipart or other photograph as the background for my label.
I also like to wait until I have 2 labels to do so that I don't waste a sheet of fabric.
After the label has been washed, pressed and trimmed to 3/8" around the image, I back the omage part with a piece of white fabric. This is to keep the backing fabric from showing through. I fuse some Mistyfuse to one side of white fabric and cut a piece the size of the image and fuse it in place.
Next I fold under the raw edges and use another piece of Mistyfuse over the whole back of the label. This holds down the edges lets you fuse the label in place on the back fo the quilt.
I like fusing the labels in place so I don't have to bother with pins when I'm sewing it down. I prefer Mistyfuse because it doesn't add any bulk to an already bulky area of the quilt.
Now I've got some hand sewing to do!
