Finished (almost) big shirt

Last night was the last Big Shirt class. Of course, I forgot my brown thread and had to buy a spool of brown thread at the shop. And I forgot to take my owner's manual for Bubba so I couldn't learn how to do button holes on my shirt. So, I will have to take Bubba and my shirt up to the shop in a week and have Raven show me what to do.

Here are the pictures of the shirt so far:



And here is as close as I could get to the detail on the sleeve cuff. My bat-tree is dying in the camera. I will have to take clearer pics when the bat-trees are charged.


I think that it turned out really well!

And I bet that quiltshop owner appreciated your buying some thread. Sometimes that's what keeps a shop going is the sales during classes. And I hope you got a discount too. I love that shirt. Is it for you? Or a gift. I am corresponding with a gentleman in Michigan. We have a lot in common and want the same things mostly out of life. Except I can't get married ever so that could be a problem. He seems like a marrying kind of guy. It just isn't financially feasible for me to remarry. So, I guess I will have to tell him that and see if he wants to continue our cyber "romance". But, I could dig being in Michigan...isn't that near you all? I want to play with you and jen and cindy...please can I? How's the Date? Heard from him? jaja

JaJa The shirt is for my mom. I had to get more fabric to make her a Halloween shirt, too, since she liked how this one was turning out! I have talked to the Date. I just posted about our dinner tonight. I hope that things work out for you and Michigan. Michigan (depending on the part of Michigan) can be as close as 5 hours away from me. I am not sure how close it is to Jen. We might have to start planning a My Quilt Blog get together for 2008!! :)

Oh I love the big shirt and I'm picturing it in my mind in Halloween and Christmas fabrics. Maybe this is something that I need to look into. You've done a great job on it. I'm glad that you talked to the Date. It's great to be honest with him and see what happens. If nothing else it's just fun to go to dinner or a movie with someone. I'm looking forward to a long sewing weekend too. Cindy
