Confession: I have a bundle of "Quilts to be Bound" stuffed neatly next to my bed. During a recent cleaning episode, I decided that I wanted to clean up that space and proceeded to prepare bindings. First to complete was the Kentucky Derby Quilt and then I moved on to my HST Sampler quilt.
The bright colors inspired by (ahem*) my favorite pajama bottoms yielded this bright beauty. I chose a aqua teal for the border and then chose to use a lipstick pink (Kona) for the backing and binding.
Question: Even though I thoroughly washed the fabric, I'm still a little leery of giving away this quilt. The main print comes from a pair of "well-loved" and in great condition pajama pants. Would a quilt made from someone's pajama pants be gross or weird? Or is it just like when people made quilts from old clothes?

(I feel like I keep saying that I'm addicted to blue, but I keep presenting finished quilts that are outside my addiction. I still "struggle" with my blue addiction, but lately I've been committed to finishing my WIPS. Shhhh... I have two blue quilts ready to be cut!)
