Labeling Quilts

It wasn’t until fairly recently that I decided I needed to label my quilts. I always felt like the labels looked like an afterthought.  If I attached one, it was because I simply hurried at the end when all I wanted to do was gift wrap the quilt and present it to the recipient.  Most […]
