Label Tutorial from Jaybird Quilts

Have you seen this tutorial on making labels using Spoonflower fabric? It is the greatest idea. And wouldn’t it be a great way to make care labels for your quilts that could be stitched into the edge of the binding on the back.

For care labels, I like to make a fold-over label. I fold right sides together, stitch the sides, turn right side out, and stitch the raw edge into the binding on the back. This is a little trick I learned from Linda Lawson at Longarm Chat.

Have you had fabric printed by Spoonflower? I used some in a commission quilt and it was very nice fabric.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. This is a great idea. While I hope to do a child’s throw for Christmas, this would be a novel way to sign your work. I gave a ME fairy to my girlfriend and she immediately went and got a Micron pen and had me sign my work. She said we just don’t do that often enough. And she made a good point.
