Pyjama Case

I don't really have a very big finish for this week - just a small one in the form of a pyjama case for my youngest daughter.

Ursula picked the fabric for this herself when we were at the quilt show last month.  I was really surprised when she went for this black floral design - I thought she would have opted for something more modern.

I kept the design very simple and based it on a cushion cover - the only difference being that I quilted the back and edged it with proper binding.  Yay No more pyjamas left lying on the floor !!  Well that's the idea anyway.

I've been working away on ideas for a project I am involved in , to do with quilts for the partialy sighted.
Of course it is all about texture.  This is my progress so far :

I still have a lot more work to do on it.  The edge is going to be covered in 3D flowers and leaves.  I bought the fabric already dyed like this from the quilt show.  It's 100% Egyptian cotton and has been a pleasure to quilt.


Of course it's Friday so I'm linking up with Amanda from Dont Tell Quilts, who is this week's TGIFF host. Pop over and check out the finishes.

I have 5 hours of uninterupted peace before my girls get home from school, so I'm off to SEW!
Have a great day everyone.
Rhianon.

Love your work! Did you dye the fabric yourself? I think the blog is locked for the committee only at this stage.

Beautiful work! Since you joined my blog, I came to do so for yours. Thanks for the compliments. I looked at your quilts and saw your RRCB. I did one too!
