Diane Harris makes adding a label to your quilt completely painless. Start by brainstorming and creating what your label will say and how it will look using Microsoft Word. You will need to get special fabric paper that runs through your printer. After you get your label printed learn how to add a border and a backing to it to sew to the back of the quilt by hand.

    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.

    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.

      Hi Therese,
      Thank you for your patience.
      As long as you follow the instructions on the package as to making the coloring permanent, it should hold up just fine. Also, this can be found at some local craft and fabric stores. If yours does not carry it I would recommend looking online through retailers like Amazon.

      Cheers,
