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.

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.

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!
