Quilt Labels, Past and Future

I recently completed two quilts and made these two quilt labels:





My sister gave me this book of "iron on" quilt labels. I am excited to try one of these out! The directions say to color the labels with crayons and markers. I'm not too sure about using crayons.... but I think an ironed on label in plain black and white would be nice. I could then fill in the blanks with my black permanent fabric pen. At some point, I may do a trial label using crayons and/or markers to see how it turns out before sewing it on an actual quilt.

The book of iron on quilt label transfers:





Have any of you ever used these type labels? How did they work?

Its a very good idea to label the quilts. I am planning on doing that, but I constantly forget it :o) Your blog is very nice!

those are pretty.... i've have an embroidery pattern that uses crayons to color in the design... the heat is supposed to set the color. I haven't tried it yet.
