QBB Talks to Us About Labels

Carla of Quilts Beyond Borders had this to say recently, when asked about wording for labels from Sunshine members:

We always add a line to our label that says:

"Belongs to: (space for receiver's name)"

As you can see from the attached pictures, it's a very big deal for the kids to have their names put on their quilts. Since even their clothing is shared, this is for many of them the only thing they actually own. That's why we feel it's important to include the "Belongs to" line.

We would also appreciate having our name, "Quilts Beyond Borders" somewhere on the label, but if there's only room for one line, the "Belongs to" line is more important. Our usual label says,

Quilts Beyond Borders
Made for You with Love by __________,
Belongs to:________________.

We certainly have no objection to having the Sunshine Guild's name included, as we wouldn't have the quilt without you!
