Adding Names to Quilts

4 Comments

Signing Off on Your Quilt by Big Kitten

For putting names on quilts, I embroider the name on. No fading or labels coming off. I usually put it in a lower corner. 

 

Adding Fabric Labels to Quilts and Other Projects by Anonymous

 

Any of the acid-free pens used for scrapbook will work for making fabric labels. They are permanent and will not run. A hint for making it easier to write on the fabric is to iron some freezer paper to the BACK of the fabric (glossy side to the fabric). This will stabilize the fabric for you to write on. After you are finished writing on the label, simply peel the freezer paper from the back and proceed to affix the label to the project.

 

Embroider Names on a Quilt by Valerie Soltis

 

Put the name on a tag and then embroider over it. This process is one that was used at our family reunion when everyone was asked to sign their name on a tablecloth then all the names were embroidered over and the year was added. It's amazing how you can look back and remember people by looking at a very old table cloth. Some of the kids also drew pictures along with signing their names. It is a fun project.

My sewing machine has an alphabet stitch so I stitch my name and date on a label and sew it on the back!...lasts longer than ink!

before i had my embroidery machine, i would write the name on the fabric with a fabric pen (water or air erasable) and then i would hand sew tiny beads over the writing. it adds a bit of texture and a personal touch to the project. i know it takes a lot longer but in the end it was all worth it.

Hi, Suzannie Tampa FL I hope I can help you out....After the names are on the quilt block. Go and make what I call the running stitch. You come up from the back, side the needle along the line make small stitch pick up from the line. Loop string around needle...pull needle up and you made a loop knot. put needle down again where you come up and make small line up stitch and make another loop around needle and pull up. Follow the name line. When you are done knot off at the back. You then can have the quilt qulited. If the quit is quilted go threw the top layer and pull knot in between fabrics. Then start you running stitch. Run needle only threw top fabric. Finish off by making a small knot and push in between fabric. I hope this was clear. I can show better then tell how over the computer...if you need help comment back on this article and i will check now and again to see if or how I can help..
