The quilt label was the very last important step to finishing this quilt. This time I drew a heart on a piece of muslin approx. 5¼″ x 5¼″ in size and I monogrammed the following using my Janome Horizon machine.
We are made from Stardust so shine so shine Dylan shine.
Quilted with love for Dylan Howell,

I stitched interfacing (stabilizer) to the front of the label (covering the label), stitching a scant ¼in seam all the way around the edge of the heart label, I then cut a small slit in the middle of the interfacing and turned the label inside out, the back of the label was now encased and all of the seams were enclosed,
then I ladder stitched the label to the quilt back in one corner by hand.
And a big thank you to everyone, who has encouraged me along the way, I have really appreciated all the advice and comments I have received.
Until next time. Happy quilting
