Sorry you haven't heard much from me in the past week, guys. My back went out over the weekend and I haven't done much sewing. I had back surgery last summer to remove a piece of my L4-L5 disk that had herniated. Although the surgery got rid of the pain I was in at the time, my back still goes out every now and then.
Tonight I'm heading to my in-laws' house to take advantage of their hardwood floors to do some basting. I haven't made labels for my quilts before, but I really want to. My question though is at what point do you attach the label? Do you wait until the quilt is quilted (but before adding the binding)? Do you wait until it is 100% done? Do you add the label before basting? I thought I'd add it to the backing before I baste the quilt tonight so I can treat it like appliqué and use one of my machine's appliqué stitches. But will the label get messed up when I quilt it? I'm not that great at hand-sewing so I didn't totally want to wait and do it after I've done the quilting, but maybe that's the better way to go.
How do you apply your labels?
