The pajamas above were from a fabric gifted to me by a friend in the Itty Bitty group on ravelry. They had an owl swap and I didn't join in but I got a package of owl themed goodies from this sweet friend. I knew the fabric was destined to be pjs for Mr. C. I wanted to try piping on them and found a pattern that looked classy. Ta Da! I'm happy with them but I don't think I'll be trying piping on pjs again anytime soon. I'm over it.
Next up were quilt blocks left over from previous quilts and 5 Precious Moments counted cross stitches that, until a few years ago, had hung in my daughter's bathroom. They've been sitting for a few years because they were too precious to get rid of (pun intended) but what to do with them? A quilt! I used a simple quilt pattern that is now one of my favorites. 2.5 inch blocks in groupings of 4 and 4.5 inch blocks. Arrange randomly. I had some fat quarters in pale pastels that screamed to be used alongside the pale Precious Moments. Ta Da! The quilt is now a lap throw at my daughter's home. The rest of quilt blocks were spied by eager 6 and 7 year olds and they were quickly snatched up and because quilts for tigers, puppies, and dolls. They not only arranged the blocks, they sewed some of them!
