    There is a couple of really cute nurses panels, I have made two of them they are really cute. I know you can find them at e-bay and some of the quilt shops have them, there are also co-ordinating fabrics.

    Lynnie,
    What about a little quilt with scrubs appliqued on white/cream then sashing and done! Scrubs could be easy to do and use only scraps.

    How about some mug rugs with hearts on them. The background you could do a 'quilt as you' go scrappy.

    Since I've made 100's of scrubs , I go with M.I.Late's idea.
    that sounds adorable. I personally have no idea of my own, sorry.

    You have received some good ideas.

    I'm not bursting with anything much different ... though perhaps if we knew the intent of the quilt, that it might help. Eg. is it as a lucky draw for nurses? fundraiser? gift?

    Or for your DD to enjoy, herself?

    Or????????????????
