What Should a Quilt Label Include?

Let’s pretend that you have committed to labeling all of your quilts. I have promised that to myself often, but, sometimes I just forget, of don’t get around to it.

I like to write a recipient first, the occasion for the quilt, the date, and my name (my husband and my name if it is a gift from us).


There are many who insist that the name of the quilt be included and the names of quilt blocks used. That is really too much effort for me to make. I would rather be on to my next project.

I think that the important entries should really be the Date and the name of the artist. That way, in many years, when someone is admiring this antique piece of homemade art, they will know who and when.

And they will be able to pass along an important piece of family history.
