It is important to label your quilts for many different reasons. It is always nice to know who made the quilt and when, but it is even nicer to know if it was made for a special occasion or for a special someone.
When offering a quilt as a wedding gift or a baby gift, it is nice to be able to add that special touch and include the name of the recipients and of the maker on the quilt. It is the perfect finishing touch.

I offer the services of making machine embroidered custom labels for your quilts.
Here is how it works:
- If you would like an embroidered label, you need to email me with the information you would like on the label and the colours of the quilt. If you can send me a photo of the quilt, that would help.
- If you would like the label to be embroidered on a specific fabric, you can mail me a minimum 10" square of that fabric. I do also have some fabric on hand that I can use if you prefer.
- Let me know if you would prefer script or block lettering and if you would like me to add a small design to the label.
At this point, I will design your label on my computer. When I am done designing, I will email you a mock-up of the label including the approximate size of the embroidery and the price. This is the time for you to let me know of any changes you would like made on your label. If you want it bigger, or smaller, if I made any spelling mistakes, if you don't like the lettering I used... now is the time to let me know as I have not yet stitched the label.
|This is an example of the mock-up.|
Once you have approved of the mock-up, I will stitch up the label and then send it back to you.
You will see how this:

Then all that is left for you to do is trim the label down to size and stitch it on to the back of your quilt.
Prices start at 15$*.
If you would like a beautiful custom embroidered label for your quilt, don't hesitate to contact me. I would be happy to work with you and put the finishing touch on your beautiful quilt.
