    Such a lovely way to label a quilt! How perfect that it's easily customizable to match the quilt, too. Thank you for sharing this information.

    When I make quilts for children, I always sew a small pocket onto the back of the quilt and then make the label separately, backing it with a firm stabilizer. That way the label itself can be pulled out when the quilt is laundered.
