Forever Labeled

To make labeling my quilts easy rather than a chore, I precut quality muslin in 6" squares and press them on the diagonal. I open each one up to write on it, using the pressed line for placement and allowing for seam allowances. As I attach my binding, I refold each labeled square into a triangle, slip the raw edges into the quilt corner, and stitch. Then I simply slip-stitch across the diagonal fold to secure it.
