    Cool Quilt Labels

    Was looking for a site to get ideas for quilt labels and came across this one. All you have to do is click on the label you want, when it enlarges right click and "save as" on your computer! http://quiltwithus.connectingthreads...s/quilt-labels

    Ain't you just the cat's pajamas! Thanks. Sometimes I think I collect sites as much as I collect patterns and fabric.

    Here is a label I made today from this site. Right now it is fused to the back of the quilt, going to hand sew it down later.

    Love the label! I found some in a quilt shop. They came about 20 to a yard of material. You just cut them out and write or embroider whatever you want on them and sew them down. They have all kinds of designs on them. They come in all different sizes and shapes. Hugs, Jan L P.S. I think I paid 1.99 for them.

    Here's a similar site that I found yesterday. I've never tried printing cloth labels. What do you need to do to get the ink to be color fast? I think this website is for embroidering.

    Bec, I'm not an expert on printing on fabric, although I have done it several times. I do know that the last time I bought fabric that was specifically designed for printing the instructions on the box stated the type of printer needed and whether or not it was colorfast and would withstand washing. The pictures I printed were of my granddaughters and I put them in a small quilt for their father. I do know that he has never had the quilt laundered because it isn't in use all the time. It still looks great. I have also just printed on white cotton and done a wall-hanging that wasn't intended to be laundered . . . can't honestly say how it held up because it was a gift long ago.

    I have also been wondering about the ink from a printer being colorfast and washable. I'll try to do some research tomorrow, if I find something I'll let you know.
