Thanks so much for the good ideas. I ended up tracing the hats onto vellum and practiced my fmq on them. No quilt police, please. I'm still learning fmq. It still needs a label, and I'll take it baby Jolie on Friday. We just got great news...our son got a job in Buckeye so they will be moving here from Illinois in April. Grammy gets to have her baby girls nearby! I'm so excited!
