Making Quilt Labels


  • Always identify your quilts. Attach a label that tells who, when, where, and any other pertinent information you may want to add.
  • Reduce or enlarge the design, using a copy machine, to make any size label.
  • Trace motif onto fabric of your choice using a permanent, waterproof pen. Trace outside line using a washable marking pencil of your choice. (Appliqué guideline)
  • Cut fabric 1/4″ away from traced line for seam allowance.

Tip: Cut a piece of freezer paper larger than the label. Press paper, using a dry iron, to the wrong side of the fabric, shiny side against fabric. Trace the design. The paper will help to make the process of tracing the lines easier. After design has been traced, remove the paper.
