tip #38--simplify your labels

As we do the big sort I am contemplating re-homing quilts.
The kids do not want them all and I do want to give some to friends.
A few years ago I started simplifying my labels.
It is really hard to give away a quilt that has "for my darling daughter on her 14th birthday" written on the back. The recipient may think I decided my daughter was not so darling after all.

So, now it is just my name and Chicago and the year.
No baggage of sentiment.

That is what I do, because who know if the quilt is going to end up in a thrift shop.

Hmmm! Food for thoughts here. I have to go check what I wrote on older quilts. Thanks for sharing. ;^)
