I've been printing fancy labels for my quilts by finding copyright free imagery with a space in it. (Anything before 1920 would be copyright free.)
Old postcards and greeting cards are a great source.
I'm good enough at Photoshop that I can erase the original words and leave a blank space for writing. I love the old arts and crafts look like in this poppy graphic. Instead of printing these on my desktop printer I am sending them to Spoonflower.com and having them print them.
I made yardage with 15 different labels, some arts and crafts, some old fashioned clip art.
And some just silly.
Here is a fat quarter of the LabelArt yardage.
Each label is 4" x 6"
You can buy the yardage at my Spoonflower shop. Click here:

Linda made some yardage with repeat labels for our guild donation quilts to local charity. She added type to a graphic, did a layout with many of these per yard and added it to her Spoonflower design studio. After it arrived in the mail she backed it with an iron-on adhesive and cut them with a pinking rotary cutter blade.
We have a stack of labels to iron onto our donation quilts. And she can print another yard of it when we need it. This is a great way to get high quality fabric labels.

She says she'd get something done if she wasn't so distracted by scraps.
