Once you get started, you’ll be hooked! Share With Others A quilt is always a well-received gift—it says warmth, it says comfort, it says love. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect. The lucky person who receives a handmade quilt won’t notice any imperfections. Once you finish your quilt, I suggest making a label for the back. A label usually includes the name of the quilter and the year, but it can also include the city you live in and any special information you’d like to include. I have seen lots of beautiful labels on quilts—hand painted, embroidered or embellished, or just a small rectangle of light-colored fabric with the information written in permanent marker.

A quilt that is primarily green would benefit from the addition of a small amount of red, but for a less jarring and equally effective spark of color use pink, the lighter value of red. PRINT SCALE Any fabric that is not a solid color has a small-, medium- or large-scale pattern on it.
