Labels are the crowning glory to any quilt; they tell the story of the quilt so future generations will know more about the quilt and its maker. Quilt labels can be brief with name and date, or they can tell a story or even a special poem. In this 2-hour class we'll learn how to use our computers to create some beautiful labels.
