Upcycling PJ's into a quilt

Well a month after I finished the quilt top I finally bound it last night. This is another quilt for the orphanage we support in Kenya - Hope Homes International. This is made from old PJ's with a flannelette sheet on the back.
patchwork, quilting

I have tidied my crafting area, it will never look so neat again.

I have packed my bag and my quilt. I am now heading into one of the biggest adventures of my life. Open heart surgery and the replacement of my aortic valve. It has been a journey getting here. I look forward to recovering and feeling that I have my omph back. There is so much I want to do that I have just found too much in the last year.

So onward and upward, with a positive outlook and a great faith in Jesus.

Linking up to these places and crazy mum quilts


  1. Great PJ quilt. Sending you best wishes and a good recovery.

  2. My husband had aortic valve replacement 2 years ago, and he's like a new man. I pray yours goes well and you have a speedy recovery.

  3. Great idea to use up old pj's Karen. I'm a bit reluctant to get in on the quilting craze because of the cost of buying new fabric so I'm always looking out for fabric in other forms. Will keep pj's in mind. Wishing you all the very best for your surgery. Wishing you a speedy recovery and getting everything fixed.

    Much love, Anne @ Domesblissity xx

  4. Awesome way to reuse old pyjamas, Karen. Wishing you all the best for your surgery and a speedy recovery.

  5. All the very best for your op, and a speedy recovery. May you soon be well enough to live life to the full shortly, and put these stressful times behind you.

  6. Oh my that is some adventure! Hope you recover that oomph! So kind of you to think of others at this time. Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday
