  1. Does each state utilize the same labels or is each different? I've tried contacting TX's person in charge but haven't heard a word and I'm getting ready to give 9 QOVs. Thanks!

  2. Hi Sherrill - I believe you can use the label of your choice. I know our local quilt shop sells labels. If you take pictures and have photo releases signed I'd love to do a write up on your ceremony. You can reach me at
