I hadn't come across them while unpacking and I dug through my sewing stuff multiple times in pursuit. In between each stage of quilt-making -- after piecing the front, piecing the back, and basting the quilt -- I looked for the labels, hoping to be able to attach one before quilting. But no, I couldn't find the roll. I quilted and label-hunted, binded and label-hunted, to no avail. I washed the quilt and I hunted, no luck. I dried the quilt and I hunted and, finally, at last, the labels appeared. I had squired them away in an envelope full of "important" papers that I would surely sort and file quickly (ha!). So the timing was imperfect, but at least I could still sew on a label before shipping the quilt. And so I did. The hand-stitching is imperfect, but I'll take it. And if you're looking for labels, Michelle at Inked Papers is delightful.
