Ray Quilt Along #6: Put A Label On It!

Hey, it’s a bonus! Now that the quilt is done, don’t forget to put a label on it!

Labels can be simple or fancy–that’s up to you. It’s always a good idea to mark your accomplishment with your name, when you made it and anything else worth noting.

For me, it’s a pretty simple process. In addition to my name and date, I like to add the quilt name, batting used (since I tend to change this up from time to time) and bonus of where it was made. If it’s a gift or if there is more of a story, that can be good information to include as well.

As for how to include it, you can go simple or more involved. Even though I got fancy on this one, I usually go super simple and just use a permanent marker to note the details. On this one, I got a bit more fancy and marked it all via embroidery.

And while I’m here, I’ll share a few more snippets of the back. I love how the back turned out. I used some favorites from my stash.

As well as this leftover block from my Spools quilt (pattern here).

The quilting goes in the same direction, and I love how the lines go in different directions when it’s all folded up. It’s a small detail, but I love it when there are new ways to look at a project depending on how you are using it or not.

    Here I will be a pest and comment again. Your stitches are perfect. I also like to embroider and cross stitch and my stitches when you look behind are messy (not perfect). I read this magazine and they had an article on the Bronte family of writers–and they featured cross stitch samplers of some of the sisters and they showed the back. Some of them had perfect stitches and some did not–it was interesting since I love the Brontes and love to read. So, your stitches are perfect! As with everything you do CF. Have a nice day. And now I have to study and work on my ray quilt–I’m not as fast.

      I am really intrigued – which Bronte sisters were neat stitchers and which were not? Do you remember? I imagine Charlotte (and Anne?) being neat and Emily much wilder, but that’s only because of their writing.

        Aaah, what a great question! I’m very intrigued, but I haven’t read them…
