Tab Labels Tutorial - LOVE THEM!

Here is a quick and easy way to make a tab label.  It tucks inside the binding on the back of the quilt.  It has just enough room to record all the important things - don't forget that you can also write on the back of the tab.  Here is a pictorial record of making a tab label.

start with about a 2 1/2 inch wide by 3-5 inches, fold in half length wise and sew sides

Turn and press and sew into seam allowance on edge as you sew on the binding.


  1. I love the quilting on the first 2 quilts!! And that is a great label idea! Easy...just what I like!

  2. Gee, what a terrific idea! I can't believe I've never seen this kind of label before.

    Looking forward to meeting you at the blogger meetup in SLC!
