    Couple of questions about labels

    I finished the quilt and it is in the dryer, but I forgot to put a label on it. My questions are:

    1. Do I need to do anything to the material I use before putting it on the quilt since the quilt was already washed/dried?
    2. If I write it out by hand, what pen do I use?

    Thanks so much - I was hurrying to get it finished and completely forgot the label.

    Personally, I would hand wash the label fabric and toss it in the dryer so that if it's gonna shrink, it'll do it before being sewn onto the already washed/dried quilt.

    As for the pen type, I use a permanent fabric marker pen, but have known others that use a good ol' fashioned fine tip Sharpie.

      Thanks, Carolyn! I happened to have some pre-washed yardage in a complementary color so I used that. I decided to go with the Pigma pen. Hopefully, it holds up with washing.
