Free Label for Your Union Blues Quilt


Print this label onto fabric for a period look to your quilt
made of my Moda Union Blues fabrics.

How to Print
  • Create a word file (regular size) or a new empty JPG file that is 5" x 5".
  • Click on the image above.
  • Right click on it and save it to your file.
  • Print that file out on a pre-treated printable fabric sheet that is 8-1/2" x 11". The label should be 5" x 5".


I used a graphic seen in a series of Civil War envelopes.

Union stationery was a popular consumer item during the War.
This image was also used for a series of specific states....
"Loyal to the Union, State of Illinois."

"State of New Hampshire"


Envelopes are a great source for period images.


Do a web search for 
Civil War Envelope




And if you haven't made a Union Blues quilt to put the label on yet, this doll quilt from Stella Rubin may inspire you.
