Cowboy Laundry?

This pile of shirts and jeans may look like a load of laundry, but actually it will all be going into my next quilting project!  A few months ago I saw this Watch Me Grow Chart on Moda Bake Shop and when I showed it to the lil' cowboy's mommy she said it was just what they needed!  Military families move a LOT, so tracking the lil' cowboy's height on his closet door the way we did for his daddy is pretty much out of the question.  A quilted growth chart made from some of his old baby clothes and scraps from his cowboy quilts will be the perfect alternative!

That is such a great idea, I hadn't seen that tutorial. It would be great for people who live in rental properties too.
