Sweetwater Custom Labels GiveAway!

Jan 19, 2011
Pin It
A while ago I asked in this post where everyone was getting quilt labels from...

There were quite a few suggestions and I did a bit of research on all the suggestions before I decided to start working with Sweetwater (thanks Wendy!).

Yep... that's right, the same Sweetwater who designed Make Life, Pure, and (I want it so bad) Sunkissed lines of fabric.  They have a very diverse business from creating those fabric lines we know and love, to labels, to stationary, to graphic design....


I wrote to Sweetwater asking about designing custom fabric labels, and I worked with Lisa to develop what I liked.  She made design suggestions which helped me improve the readability of the label.

GXQ prototype label

Lisa and Sweetwater's customer service was above and beyond.  We've communicated back and forth several times trying to get the sizing, readability and colors right.  I really felt taken care of.


GXQ labels rev 2, 3 and 4

I have decided to go with the labels on the top left hand corner, which are in charcoal grey.  They come with the fusible web on the back, so all you have to do is iron on and stitch secure.  I could not be happier!

Now for the awesome part....

Sweetwater is giving away 25 small custom fabric labels to one lucky GXQ reader!

You can view the label styles here.

The winner can choose their favorite style, and then choose colors, wording, etc.


How to enter:

1. Become a follower of GXQ and leave me a comment (or let me know if you already are one). (1 entry)


2.  Go to Gen X Quilters Facebook page and "like" GXQ. (1 entry)


3. Go to Sweetwater's blog and subscribe there (or let me know if you already do). (1 entry)

4. Tell us what you've made using Sweetwater's fabric lines. (1 entry)

Leave a separate comment for each entry on this post. Entries will be accepted until Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 11:59 PM EST.


The winner will be chosen by a Random Number Generator and announced on Thursday, January 27, 2011.
