Before you Gift a Quilt

After you choose a pattern and make a quilt, remember to label it! Labeling is an important part of quilt making and is often overlooked.

I think one of the reasons why is that it can be hard to think of what to write on a gifted quilt. Well, luckily for you I have a blog post on the topic to ease your mind!

Check out my post “40+ Quilt Label Wording Ideas for Gifted Quilts” to help you decide what to write on your label.

Before you gift your quilt, make sure to include instructions on how to care for it! Your quilt recipient will know exactly how much love and effort you put into their gift, and that may make them shy about using their quilt. But as we all know, quilts are meant to be used and loved!

Include my free quilt care printables with your gift to help your quilt recipient feel confident knowing how to wash and care for their quilt.
