The Pyjama Game from madebychrissied


I'm looking to teach a pyjama pant class this year so I wanted to find a good, reasonably priced pattern that I could use with students.  
My friend, Amy, who orders all the books, notions and other goodies for us at The City Quilter suggested this book, Sew Easy Pajama Pants by Cindy Taylor Oates which comes in around the $15 price mark.


I tested the pattern by making these two pairs of pyjama pants, one for my daughter, Flicky and one for my dil, Katie.


Fabrics:
Eucalyptus in Jade from the Pretty Potent collection by Anna Maria Horner ...

Fresh Flowers Cushion from Charm About You


I finally have a finish to share, although this was actually completed last year I'm only getting round to blogging about it now.

I was inspired by Jen Kingwell Designs and Collette's Full Bloom Wall Hanging, and after a quick flick through Alison Glass Applique: The Essential Guide to Modern Applique (which gave me yet more inspiration), I decided to make this cushion. It's a combination of everything I love; simple patchwork, English paper piecing, appliqué and hand quilting.


I used some 30s repro fabrics, combined with a nice bit of Cracking Codes by Anna Maria Horner ...

AMH Feather from Ants to Sugar

A few weeks ago, I saw a feather on someone’s swap inspiration board. (People who participate in swaps sometimes make a collage of favorite things to inspire his/her partner). There are many people making mini’s with Anna Maria Horner’s Feather Bed quilt templates, but this one really caught my attention and had no link to the original.

Many days later, that specific feather was still stuck in my brain, and when I stumbled upon the original on Instagram, I knew I had to make one to give away this Christmas.

My brother-in-law loves pinks and purples ...

Swoon TWO WooHoo! from Library Gal Quilts

Gals, I have been having a great Fall and have been sewing and puttering around the sewing room as much as I am able with working and the holidays. Sewing and quilting and well I have to admit it, fabric purchasing is really just the best therapy for a happy life especially when you add in a sweet husband, two lovely daughters and a little grandson. Thanksgiving was super nice at our house and we gathered under the Ginko Tree for a photo to share.


The big news is I am retiring April 1st! It is in the works at ...

Seriously Summer Quilt from Craft My Life Away




I've had this quilt pictured in my mind for a while now. A long while. The fabric has been sitting on my Anna Maria Horner shelf for what seems like forever and the whole project was on hold until I found the perfect quilt pattern to compliment the fabrics. The fabric here is cotton voile from Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks like from like 7 years ago (I said I've had it for a while).





This quilt is entitled Seriously Summer because these colors perfectly reflect my summer mood. This summer has been filled with brightness and ...
