Today's the day! I am a guest on the second-ever episode of Quilt Your Heart Out, a brand new podcast with Marianne and Mary Fons, produced by Heather Kinion. We talked about labeling quilts, among other things, so I thought I would share a photo of one of my labels.
You can hear more on today's podcast, but I have one other nugget. If you piece your quilt backs, try piecing your label into the back. Plan it all out ahead of time, and make the label part of the whole plan for the quilt. It would be difficult to remove, and it sure wouldn't fall off. A lot of quilters are piecing their backs today, and I hope to see more of them making great labels and piecing them into the backs. I also hope to see a few rebels piece their labels into the quilt top.
Thank you, Marianne, Mary and Heather for inviting me to be a guest on the show. If you need me, just call, and I'll be there. For listeners, if you have questions or need pithy advice about old quilts or quilt history, you can call them in.
