    I'm so bad at labels! Are you trying to guilt me into it
    :roll: ! I know I really should and it won't take long.
    When I see them all together in the pics, the more I like the 9 patch with the I Spy sashings and cornerstones. Think I will make more like that one.

    LOL If you want to see a bad label, I should show you the one I put on my DGD's quilt. Since my shoulder and neck injury and the fibro, I have lost my fine hand at embroidery and it looks like crap, BUT, she loves it because I did it and it's for her.

    Well Linda--I'll take one just like it but change the last name! I usually don't even bother with a label, but have started to do them on the doll quilt swap quilts.

    Wildyard- your label is great. It was done by you with your special touch and that makes it the best label ever. No apologies. I can see why she loves it!

    Thanks Linda. I just talked to the mom of the 4 patch owners and she says Nolan (2 1/2) has to get the quilt out everyday and look at everything. It was a hit at their house.

    Thanks all--LDPA, the chicken wire fabric was in a bunch of scraps given to me by a quilt guild friend! Even the cornerstones are "I Spy". No piece is too small. That's what I liked about the sashings in the 9P; they were 1 1/2" strip pieces. Makes use of those off cuts when using 5 or 6 inch squares.
