Add an easy care label to your memorial quilt.

Memorial quilts are made from clothing and most clothing items have care labels. On shirts, for instance, the label is usually attached at the back of the neck or sewn into the seam toward the bottom of one side.

You can easily add a care label to your memorial quilt by selecting the label from the garment within the quilt that requires the most delicate care.

Rather than just cutting the label from the garment, remove the thread that attaches the label so that you have plenty of extra fabric above the laundering instructions.


Trim care label to size.
Iron label flat, re-fold and trim ends even.


Stitch across care label under quilt binding.


Bind across care label.
