Oops, almost forgot the label!

A reader asked what the back of the Cinco de Mayo quilt looked like with the variegated quilting thread, and I was going to tell her to look at the picture of the label...but than discovered I forgot to post it.

I love labels on quilts, and whenever I document quilts I pay attention to the labels. Some are simple, and others are elaborate, but there is such a wide variety of labeling techniques being used today. I'm always interested in seeing how people label their quilts.

Here's the label of the Cinco de Mayo. If you click the picture you can see some of the quilting on the back. As with the rest of the quilt, the label is very well done. It is machine embroidered and sewn to the back. Here's the full view in case you missed it.

  1. I love to see the label ...but I must confess that I always put off adding a label to my quilts, and I know that someday someone will appreciate the info, so now I have a goal to add to my list...lable every quilt
