The First One!

The first ONE

I went and had a look round and met the public liaison. It went great and we have been given the go ahead.
So we are off! This is #1 the first in what I hope is a long string of quilts and tops going to warm babies and young children in the Pacific Northwest.

Going Dotty!

dot label ... . by you.
Aren't these dots cute? I am planning on numbering each quilt to keep track of who gave it, where it went, went it was done. In the other group I volunteer in, they label and can look things up. It is very helpful. Plus I want a way to mark the quilts without it being something that says "look at what I did!" I want it to be kinda Anonymous and also kinda modern. I really, really love it... We have plenty of Lush paint dots in blue and red, so I can do lots of these!
If you plan on sending one, please feel free to add your own dot (not black so I can write a #number in it) I just raw edged it around several times and trimmed it after. easy peasy. Any light dot larger than half inch will do.

First Blankies Finshed

blankies by you.
Do you do a little practice before you quilt a big project? I do. I took 2 fat quarters and practiced some loop de loop. Trimmed and bound it's the perfect size for a stroller or car seat. Stuffed in a changing bag, it's great under the hiney, where ever.
I have 40 yards of batting so lets get cracking!
