I've always struggled with how to label my quilts. I have been creating my own on the computer and printing onto transfer paper. I've kept them very small with just my name and transfered them on to a cotton tape to sew diagonally across a corner. But when you have made a very special quilt for gifting I think it really deserves to be more specific. I've seen labels done using iron on bonding to stiffen the fabric then just writing the details with a Sharpie marker and sewing on - I like this method, too. I was going to try this method. THEN I discovered Think Your Archie's method on Flickr. This one takes the cake!!! She tells me she designs them on the computer, too, and prints to transfer paper. I must ask her about the type of transfer paper she uses. I've had some problems with mine peeling - may be I have ironed too much or too little - I think it can be tricky.
