Signing your quilt is the most important step in quiltmaking, next to making it. It is a documentation of who made the quilt and when. If possible, your documentation should include the name of the quilt, the quiltmaker, city, state, date, and quilt pattern.
Instead of making a separate label, many quilters embroider their name and date into the top of the quilt or on the back
Use of a pre-printed label is also another way to sign your quilt. There are many on the market or you can make your own.
