Re: Hoot Hoot Apple Quilt - my first quilting attempt

As I tried to find him outfits for Easter, Mother's Day, etc. I was surprised at how few outfits they had and the one's they did have were not my style! Fabrics conducive to boys clothing is also a challenge. I'm glad someone else is looking into it, though. There IS a hole in the market there! :)
