My Itsy Bitsy Baby Breakthrough

Second top finished of the shirts from my Dear Man.
NO potholders tonight...growth, by my standards.

Owl my dear man was very wise.
My girl Emily got the first shirt quilt with Lotta Janstotter backing,
 I gave it to her this Christmas.
Batted with wool,it is very comfy.  It is wiggled by machine.
She already has it on her bed..

I will use wool batting for mine as well.  So hoping that my quilting friends will help tie it.
Wool batting on is the cheapest price.
(with my awesome gift card from Cousin Ann).

Other than that I am so done with Their prices are no longer competitive, their sales are awful.
Sad that things have to change like that...Down hill after Amazon bought them.
Oh, well maybe the new year will bring changes for the better.

Tonight I can see the stars.
Even though it is raining.

These are my favorite kind of quilts. Maybe because I grew up with them, made from everyone's worn clothing and sewn with love to keep us warm. Loved your gift from Evan. He's quite the "man" and has his own kind of blanket...a blanket of love for you!

My guild friends used to say that angry monkeys worked for By the time I investigated them, they were under the Amazon umbrella.
I'm sure your daughter loved her quilt. I love the owls for yours. I really feel the love when wrapped in my family clothing quilts, I hope you will, too.

Lovely quilts, I love the owl fabric. They will be so cosy to snuggle under.
