I Spy finished!

Just needs a label, which I'll do this afternoon. I don't usually label my quilts, but this is a gift for children and I want their names on it.
Here's the back. A friend suggested using the map, and I think it's a great idea.
We had a Linus workday yesterday and the guild member in charge of our raffle quilt brought the blocks that have been completed so far. (Some still need eyes.) We got permission from Ami Simms to make her adorable Dog-Yeared Calendar Quilt as a fundraiser for Project Linus. Each block has been made by a different guild member. When it's all put together, we'll raffle the quilt.

Just found your blog! Love your house quilt, and that doggie calendar quilt is adorable! Love your map as the backing of the I SPy quilt too! I've added you to my bloglines so I can come back to visit again! :)

Yah for another project being finished! I think it looks great!

And the Project Linus blocks are adorable! What a perfect project to raffle off for PL!!

now when you say you don't label your quilts, I hope that means that you don't physically add an additional label but you DO use a permanent pen and write your name, location and the year on it. Right? That's what I do. Like the map backing.

The perfect kind of kids quilt - hours of entertainment! And for that reason the parents will love it, too...

I have never yet labeled a quilt, but maybe I will be shamed into it someday...
