Welcome to Tutorial Week brought to you by the 2019 FAL!
If you’re anything like me, once you’re done applying the binding on your quilt, you’re ready to move on to the next project and don’t really want to spend a whole lot of time hand sewing a label. Especially if the quilt is destined to stay in your home.
When you’re ready to sew on the binding to the front of your quilt, fold your square on the diagonal and press.
Align the raw edges of your label with the raw edges of your quilt in the bottom right or left corner and pin (or clip) in place.
Sew the binding to the quilt, making sure the labels stays in place and removing your pins/clips as you get to them.
Finish sewing your binding as you normally would.
The next step is to hand stitch the folded edge of your label to the back of the quilt. You can use an invisible stitch or use decorative thread and get creative.
Finally, use a permanent marker to write the info you normally would on a quilt label. I like to include my name, the date and who the designer is (if I made the quilt from a pattern).
And voila! A quick and easy way to label your quilts!
And if you're playing along with us during the 2019 FAL, don't forget to link up your finishes! You can do so here on my blog or on the blog of any of our hosts.
