Ray Quilt Along #6: Put A Label On It!
Hey, it’s a bonus! Now that the quilt is done, don’t forget to put a label on it!
Labels can be simple or fancy–that’s up to you. It’s always a good idea to mark your accomplishment with your name, when you made it and anything else worth noting.
For me, it’s a pretty simple process. In addition to my name and date, I like to add the quilt name, batting used (since I tend to change this up from time to time) and bonus of where it was made. If it’s a gift or if there is more of a story, that can be good information to include as well.
As for how to include it, you can go simple or more involved. Even though I got fancy on this one, I usually go super simple and just use a permanent marker to note the details. On this one, I got a bit more fancy and marked it all via embroidery.
And while I’m here, I’ll share a few more snippets of the back. I love how the back turned out. I used some favorites from my stash.
As well as this leftover block from my Spools quilt (pattern here).
The quilting goes in the same direction, and I love how the lines go in different directions when it’s all folded up. It’s a small detail, but I love it when there are new ways to look at a project depending on how you are using it or not.
Don’t forget your label!
