I ordered far too much fabric for the quilt back and found that even after I had stitched a 2.6 metre square of it together, I had enough left over to make a pair of pyjama bottoms for myself. I am looking forward to co-ordinating with my patchwork quilt top and also to being able to lie, entirely undetected, on the quilt back.
Some might say that faffing around with floral pyjamas is a waste of time when I have a quilt to, erm, quilt.
I would generally agree.
However, I am having rather a frustrating time getting myself organised for the quilting and have been unable to properly kit my sewing machine out with the correct darning foot. So, while waiting for things to arrive and having basted the quilt top to the batting and quilt back in only a couple of hours after expecting it to take all day, I found I had quite enough time to make a cheeky pair of PJs.
