Happy Tutorial Thursday! Today I will show you how easy it is to label your quilts!
Labeling your finished quilts is so easy, and it is a great way to pass down the history of the quilt as it travels through generations. I tend to forget this important step, so adding labels after the quilt is finished is my specialty!
In today’s video, I will show you my two favorite methods for labeling my projects. Keep in mind there are several options out there, I encourage you to choose whichever you love most!
