I reuse twill tape that is wrapped around fat quarter bundles to make quick quilt tags. Back the twill tape with a piece of tear-away stabilizer, and machine-embroider your initials and the year. Tear off the stabilizer, fold the twill tape in half and tuck it under the binding so it gets stitched in place as you sew down the binding. Use grosgrain ribbon if you want to match the label to your quilt.
