Handmade Nightie Quilt

What do you do with your favorite comfy-soft 
nightshirts when they are getting 
a little too worn?
You do what my friend Cathy did.
 You cut them up and make a quilt. 
 She cut hers into 8" squares and hand 
stitched them together.
 Then she uses an old blue and white 
ticking sheet for the back.
Then she filled it with batting and quilted 
the corners using old buttons.
Then she found herself a comfy spot and a good book.



  1. Talented girl. It's beautiful. Deb

  2. Wow, this is the greatest! I am going to be making one of these!Thanks for sharing this idea.

  3. Greatness! Except too many projects me would probably machine sew the whole thing! Need a new summer cover!
    Thanks for sharing, love her use of old buttons!

  4. Clever and cute. Thanks for the inspiration. I do have a couple of favorites that could be used this way. This project will go on the list, but first to tackle the Ph.d (projects half done, I love that phrase, better than UFO).
