When I give a quilt for a special occasion, such as a wedding, graduation, or baby shower, I like to include a greeting card in which I've jotted a meaningful note or favorite poem. To ensure the sentiment stays with the quilt long after the card is gone, I copy my note onto transfer fabric and attach it to the back of the quilt as a label.
