The Jammie Quilt

My MIL and I went to the fabric store last month and while perusing fabric for I-Spy swaps she came across this green fabric with little jammies on it.  She loved it because they were the footie jammies and they were on a clothes line--two things she loves.  I told her we (I) could make a quilt with the fabric, she wants some quilts for the grandchildren to sleep with when they come to grandma's house.  We picked out some coordinating fabrics and I went to work.
I made up two blocks took some pictures and copied and pasted them into a picture so my MIL could get an idea of what I was thinking for the quilt top.  It took several different block patterns, but we figured it out in the end.
After reading this book several times I wanted to try out free hand quilting.  I loved doing it, but I did learn that my machine is not up for hours of quilting at one time--now to saving for a quilting machine.
I loved how this turned out and am excited to stitch up some other quilts.
