Finally a finish

upcycling old Pj's

It has been most of summer since I managed to finish something. Yay, the quilt top for the caravan is DONE.  Well I still have to sandwich it and quilt it, but the patchwork is done. I love the repetition of the hourglass block. This is made with 100% recycled flannel. The white was a really good condition fluffy sheet that I bought at a local Op Shop for $3. The patterned material are all PJ's - again Op Shop purchases. (I have to say that I am a bit addicted to making flannel quilts, they are so soft and cuddly and making them from recycling just appeals to the frugal in me).
Finally I am able to link back to Finish it up friday. I also link up to places here.

  2. This quilt is beautiful, I love the colors! I just cleaned out my girls' drawers of clothes they have outgrown.... now I need to go take out all the flannel PJs before I take the box to Goodwill :-). What a great idea!
