When my oldest son chose the backing for his denim quilt, his younger brother got a case of jealousy.  He informed me that he’d ALWAYS wanted a plaid lumberjack shirt in just exactly those colors.  Well, he lucked out because there was enough fabric leftover from the edges of the denim quilt backing to makeContinue reading “Lumberjack Shirt”
