Bats and Boos QAL


Although I would like to skip some memories of 2021, there are many quilt finishes worth sharing.  The Fat Quarter Shop hosted a Bats and Boos QAL, which I happily joined.   I have become a huge fan of a few You Tube Videos after retirement, including Kimberly Jolly Fat Quarter Shop.  

A little over a year ago, the southern part of Louisiana became the target of Hurricane Ida.  We evacuated for several days along with this quilt  to finish the binding.  Returning home to no power or water, we counted our blessings to still have a home. 

The finished Bats and Boos was completed last year just in time for my sister's birthday.  Considering I raided her Halloween Stash for a backing, it was the least I could do.

Wow, your quilt is gorgeous! I missed the whole bats & boos thing but will go read up on it for inspiration. Thanks for sharing! My son and his wife were affected by Ida as well, and had to take refuge at our house for a week. Like you, they were fortunate that the power outage was the only major issue. We were fortunate to be able to have them stay with us.
