    The name tag is for my quilting group. I'm not real good at coming up with novel ideas, so I thought, "What better than a quilt!" I have never made a quilt that small, but picked out some fall colored scraps and started cutting. Here is what I ended up with. Now to decide what to put my name and Heritage Quilters on. I'm going to head for Hobby Lobby next week to see what I can find. Of course, if anyone has a suggestion, I'd love to hear it! Oh, BTW, the corners are mitered :shock: LOL!

    Could you get some clear plastic (same size) and write your guild name on that (could make small holes in the 4 corners and tie it on). For your name how about getting those beads with the letters on them and dangle the letters from the bottom of your quilt to spell your name.

    Very cute your tiny quilt. Looks like it will be fun to make one like that, mittered corners and all. Awesome.

    This one looks like fall. I'll have to make another one for winter in blues and snowflakes (although snowflakes are few and far between in southern Oklahoma).

    Cute name tag. How about alphabet macaroni glued on for names? It always worked for our kid's projects.

    What if you appliqued a small rectangle of light-colored coordinating fabric with your name on it? That way, it would stand out.

    I like the "dangle bead" idea!
