Quilt of Valor Label
With the recent load of Quilts of Valor quilts coming back to me from various longarm quilters I thought it prudent to learn how to make quilt labels. This first attempt turned out pretty well. I am concerned that it might be a little big. The motif is around 3" but when I added the wording, it increased to 5" x 6" so I may need to tweak it some. But, I love the feminine look it has and I will use it for my quilts. The fabric is a second cousin to cardboard. I got it in some kind of package from someone sometime. With the embroidery machine, all the fabric has to be stabilized so I immediately remembered this fabric and have enough for quite a few labels.
If you want a label for any of your Quilts of Valor, let me know. You will need to send a SASE with your fabric of choice for the label--something in the 9" x 9" range. I will supply the thread and stabilizer. In exchange I will do it for you for a FQ per label. Right now I am only going to stitch this label but I am sure I will be trying some other designs soon. You know me!
