Ok so I really goofed and let Caitlin take this vintage quilt home with her before getting a photo of the whole quilt.

What was I thinking?

The above kinda gives you an idea of what the quilt looks like, just times it by 10 or so.
It is a BIG quilt and I do not mind saying very hard to handle the quilting with my Bernina machine.
I love the binding ! The fabric is from a dear friend of mine : Norma. I have always said  "someday I want to be like Norma"!
She is the kindest person I know!

When it came to the quilting:
 where their is a will their is a way! 

I also made these pajama bottoms last night, took about an hour.
I was so tired of wearing the pajamas I have worn for the last 2 years, I decided to get a little sassy
and make some bright colored pajamas

And oh my are they comfy :)-:).
Happy Friday to you all.

One hour?! That's just not fair! :) I love the pj pants...wish I was so handy with my machine!

Those are some cute pajamas! And done so quickly. I'm impressed.

LOL! I've definitely given away a quilt without getting a picture of the finished item. Ugh. So frustrating. Looks like a good one, though :-)

I can just imagine how pretty the whole quilt must be! Great pictures! And I know you're loving those new pjs, too. ;o)
