I”ve been sitting contemplating a photo of the quilt label I made for the “It’s a Sterling Life on Berkeley Square” quilt:
This label was created using the Paintwork tool on a BERNINA 880. Now I have to confess, I’m not totally in love with the Paintwork tool, or the cutwork tool for that matter. In my opinion, I want my embroidery machine to be doing what it does best – stitching embroidery designs with thread! There are definitely better ways to cut appliqué shapes (AccuQuilt GO! dies and my electronic cutting machines – Brother Scan N Cut and Silhouette Cameo). And my inkjet printer does a much better job if I want to print a label onto fabric.
How do you create the labels you put on your quilts? I have another confession – I’m really bad at labeling my quilts. Most of the time, I write on the back using a Sharpie pen. And sometimes even that doesn’t happen!
Leave me a comment below and let me know how you label your quilts. If a quilt label were to come with a design collection, what would you want it to say? How would you want to make it? Print it onto fabric? Stitch it using your embroidery machine? Both cases leaving a space for you to write in your personal info?
