Top Ten Tuesday { Quilt Labels, Display and Storage}

Good afternoon!! It’s been a busy morning…I have been cutting fabric for the next quilt since the electrician was here updating our circuit breaker box and some outlets. With the power safely off for him to work his magic, I was more than happy to cut and play with more fabric!

With that said, the computers were offline, too…so I am just now posting today’s blog…Tuesday Tips! I really like the tips shared by Aurifil and this topic just came up with another quilting friend. I made a label on my new sewing machine, third attempt, and I am liking it. Practice makes, well, almost perfect!! Mr. G pointed out I should put my blog address on the label…more to tweak on this!

I saw a post by Bonnie Hunter explaining how she labels her quilts. Genius! So simple and effective! Here is her post.

Putting a label on a quilt is important and helpful but a personal choice of the maker. Drop me a comment on your favorite way to label your creations or why you don’t. Either way…I hope your quilts are used and loved for a very long time!

Aloha!
