More quilters today are starting to place labels on the back of their quilts. These labels can help us to keep track of when a quilt was given, why it was given, and who it was given to. Kelly Hanson demonstrates how to make a quilt label, and how to prepare these labels for your next quilting project.

    You keep calling it “wax paper” but it looks like freezer paper, which is not the same thing. What is it that you are using? Wax paper is usually waxed on both sides and is somewhat transparent. Thanks!

      Hi Allyson. Indeed it is freezer paper, thank you for your inquiry. We will make a note of that in the description. Sorry for the mix up.

    I’m pretty sure Kelly is using freezer paper on the back of these label sheets…

    Hi, just was a little disappointed in not really learning “HOW” to use the printed quilt label. I learned a lot about coloring. But was hoping to learn more about maybe, fusing or applique. I’ve never put a label on a quilt. It would be nice to know how. Thank you.I do love the labels and coloring is a great idea.

    Freezer paper NOT wax paper. Too simple a video – I already know how to color

      I agree! I was hoping to find out how to print the labels on fabric. I don’t have any problem coloring them.

    Are you sure that is wax paper she is ironing and not freezer paper? I’m concerned wax would catch fire when ironed and ruin the quilt or label. It looks like parchment.

        Hi Randy,
        Here is what our expert had to say:
        Since all quilt label kits and supplies are slightly different- I am going to have to refer you to reading their specific manufacturer’s instructions on how to heat set or make permanent before washing.

        Let us know if you have any other questions!
