Last But Not Least – Labels!

We recently received an email from one of our readers, Vivian Burrus, with a great suggestion. Vivian said

“I was recently going through my back issues of MQU and “rediscovered” Maria Elkins great article “Last But Not Least — Label Your Quilt” in the Nov/Dec 2013 issue. With the Quilt Alliance’s Labeling Pledge (http://quiltalliance.org/labelingpledge/) still in fill swing, would you consider offering the article as a Web Extra on the site or doing a blog post referencing it?

I participated in the pledge at the start of the year by labeling my quilts that didn’t have labels. I’ve updated one of my posts with a reference to the article since she provided such great tips both on making labels and the information to include.

MQU is a resource for more than just quilting your quilts — but you already know that!”

What a wonderful idea, Vivian, we’re happy to share it. Thanks so much for the suggestion! Without further ado, here’s the link to a pdf of the article. Enjoy!

  1. Wow, thank you guys for the shout out and more importantly for sharing the article! This will help keep all the beautiful quilts being made today from being labeled “maker anonymous” by future generations.

  2. In addition to labels anytime I do an E2E design I write my name somewhere on the quilt with the quilting thread. I pick a spot that is not noticeable. Great way to protect your quilts if stolen
