UFOQAL2018 - Choose Your UFO Your Choice Quilt Along


Pull out those UFOs and join us for the Choose Your UFO Quilt Along! (#UFOQAL2018).


You've pieced it.

You've basted it.

You've quilted it.

You've bound it.

Now, label it!

For me, a quilt label is the cherry on top. It says "now I'm done!" and closes the book on a project I've worked hard on.

I also love that when there is a label on my quilt, it's story will go wherever it goes.

Below are some of my own Fandom quilt labels to help you get started:

2011 Project of Doom by Jennifer Ofenstein
My first Project of Doom label was made in Photoshop and printed on muslin fabric.

Here's an easy to follow tutorial from Karen's Quilts for making your own quilt labels on muslin.

I Want To Believe Quilt Label for Jewells

2016 I Want to Believe quilt label I made for my pattern tester (and bff!) Julia Murtha. I used the Signature Block from the event and embroidered on that using my embroidery machine. The pieces were embroidered before I pieced the block. This could also be done with hand embroidery or fabric marker (see tutorial below).


Bushfire quilt label
Super simple quilt label made using the Pigwidgeon block and a fabric pen for a charity quilt made by my former Harry Potter quilt group, hp_paper piecing. This isn't my finest work, but it's a good example of how to make a quilt block without any fancy equipment.

Project of Doom 2015 Signature Block/label

Here's another sample of a hand-drawn label. On this one, I used a Tulip Fabric Marker.


The Project of Doom 2015 Quilt Label
This is an entirely machine embroidered quilt block. Made using a design from EQ Stitch (an EQ7 upgrade) with text added in Embrilliance Essentials.

Doctor Who Quilt - Label
Hand embroidered quilt label for the Doctor Who Quilt Along, made using Jessica Blacknall's 50 Years design with the designer names added by me.

Make-A-Wish #quilt label in progress! #fandominstitches #projectofdoom #harrypotter #eq

This is another fabric label, but this one is printed on June Tailor Colorfast Fabri Sheets, also for a Project of Doom quilt. For this label, I used the event banner and added the names of all the contributors in my drawing software. Easy peasy!



Still not sure how to label your quilt?
We've got a simple but fun FREE Fandom in Stitches quilt label
