See the added dimension? And fuzziness?! :) That will all only improve with subsequent washings!
I'm probably doing these posts backwards - today's and tomorrow's - but if you're like me, you want to see the finished quilt... right? Let's just zip ahead to that, then tomorrow I'll show you each of the blocks. Deal?
Like the wonderful, supportive fellas that they are, my boys wanted to come out with me for the photo shoot. Who was I to say no? Here is Dave, checking out Mati's quilt:
I'm not going to say that he or Zim knew what I was working on, but they could sense that it was something special. I think I worked through a lot of my grief for Stormy and Amber as I stitched this together for Mike - and I know they sense my emotions.

The reverse features all the colors of the t-shirts!
It's so soft and comfy! Wrap yourself up in it and feel the warm fuzzies! (And remember, it gets better with each washing, so don't hold back!)
Does Dave look worried here?
Fear not! I gave the quilt a second washing after the photo shoot.
...or maybe he was looking for cats. I'm not sure.
Zim wanted to pose with Mati's Quilt, too.

I'm fairly certain he's thinking about when we'll get to next see Mike - and about the nose poke he's going to deliver to him. (He only does that to people he likes!)
Until next time - thanks for reading!
