And finally, my finished dolls. They are going to be a part of a silent auction item for Lincoln Park Zoo, one of the last free zoos in the United States. When I say free, it's free to those who come to the zoo, there are a lot of people working very hard to raise funds in order to keep the zoo free.
I decided to make a heart and applique it on top of the writing and no one will be the wiser. I think I will put a few hearts in other places on the quilt as well just to tie it all together, maybe.
This is not my favorite type of sewing to do, but once I get into to it, I have a good time. My husband saw the quilt top this morning and asked if I am going to be able to give it away. He knows that so much of my heart goes into these projects, but in the end, I am very happy to be able to be a part of something that has such far reaching benefits.
