When I was on vacation withe Renee @Quilts of a Feather in August, I was admiring her quilt labels as I was helping to hand bind a mini quilt she had finished while we were together. I know I need to be better about labeling my quilts as I make them, and I have tried many different styles and techniques over the years. I asked Renee if she would recommend me to the shop where she purchased her labels, and once we were home she happily did. Unfortunately, the Etsy shop owner Renee uses is no longer taking new customers, but I wrote to the owner and asked if she would recommend any other Etsy shop owners who might make labels similar to hers. She was very professional and quickly responded with several recommendations, which I greatly appreciated, and in the end I chose to work with Kim @Tagtopia to create some Quilting Jetgirl quilt labels.
I chose to unstitch a bit of binding on my recently finished Snowflake Shimmer quilt and insert a newly acquired label, and then I ran the quilt through the wash for the first time. Not only am I very pleased with the quality of the labels, but I really appreciated working with Kim; she helped expertly navigate me through some of the choices (I had originally thought to use a narrower label but due to the size of my logo, she recommended the wider label which allows all the detail in my logo to show).
I love that the labels are two sided which allowed me to add recommended care instructions. There are a nice variety of label colors to choose from, and I decided to use Pewter for my labels.
I now have a large supply of labels that I plan to keep sitting by my sewing machine as a reminder to use them when I finish my quilts! Hopefully I will do a much better job of getting these basic labels on all my quilt finishes now.
