Yeah, as you can tell I'm putting off making the quilt label. It's just so hard for a quilt this size. I'd hate to list everyone's names who made blocks and then have someone mad that I missed their name. At the same time I realize that a detailed label is needed. Anyone have any ideas on how I can accomplish this without pissing anyone off? Someone I know (cough from Ohio) thinks I should write, Here's a quilt for your wedding, it was made by a bunch of people, enjoy. Somehow, I just don't think that cuts it!! Giggle.

Giggle, as I'm laying here in bed typing this up, I just noticed that Holly is now wearing a Milwaukee Brewers Bandana on her collar. I guess her Daddy got her dressed for Opening Day!! I don't know who is cuter - my fuzzy girl or my hubby who took the time to put the bandana on her collar!!

I think you might have to go with that Ohio persons idea! How in the world could you do a label with all those names on it? LOL Isn't Mike sweet to dress Holly up for the big day?!

I like the idea of detailed better than Ms. Ohio's idea. But I'm sure you'll come up with the perfect plan. You always find the best way to do it.

Maybe you could make a fabric envelope for the label and have it say Best Wishes from all your friends, and then inside, have a fabric list of the folks who made blocks..??
