‘Quilt-Along-With-Me! Part Six: Quilt Label & Finish!

GET THE FULL PATTERN: QAWM – ‘Geo Dreams’ Quilt Pattern

What a wonderful day! You wanna know why? Cos it’s the final step in finishing our quilt!! Yay!!

In part six, we find out how to make and attach a quilt label so that we can officially say that our quilt is finished!

I think it’s super important to take time at the end and document all of the crucial details of the quilt in a label. It’ll serve as a great reminder of when the quilt was made, by whom it was made, for who it was made for as well as documenting the name of the quilt!

And the official name I’ve called this quilt is: Geo Dreams!

If you want to know a little bit more about quilt labels, how to make them, what to write on them along with the best ways to attach them to a quilt, I made this video and wrote this blog post about it!

As always I encourage you to make and attach your quilt label in the way that you know best and using a method that you find the easiest and/or most successful. You are always more than welcome to use my way as guide or for inspiration! If you would like to make your label as a hexie flower the same as mine but don’t know how to make them, here are two super-early videos I made showing you how to make hexies and then sewing them into a flower…

Thank you so much to all of you for participating and supporting me in this series! Your words of encouragement and excitement has made all of the hard work I put in totally worth it!
