PJ Day at The Quilt Corral Too!

Saturday was PJ day at the Quilt Corral Too! All the employees got to wear PJ pants for strip club. It was the way that we were introducing our Pajama Party on November 8, 2008. The big sale of the day was buy 2 yards for PJ's and get the 3rd one free. Rox didn't have a pair, so I went next door to the Sewing Center and whipped up a pair that morning in 1/2 hour so she would have a pair to wear. She loves Halloween, so hers had bats on them. Some made the Alexander Henry shirtless guys pants... firemen or carpenters. Joan, the owner did two different legs and Lu made hers out of Laurel Birch. This is about 2/3 of our staff, the other 4 or 5 had gone home or were not working that day. This is in front of our color wall. Any cotton quilting fabric works great for PJ bottoms.

This is the strip club quilt that Rox made. It's very simple, but the quilting on it is amazing. Click on it to enlarge and look at the blocks. Especially the bottom black one that has a free hand skeleton on it and the orange one above it that has a spider. Laurie T. did the quilting and it's stunning. She just got her machine at Christmas last year and quit her job in June to quilt full time. Her quilting is absolutely stunning! She even wrote Trick or Treat in one of the blocks.

I spent Sat. and Sun. working at the quilt shop, so didn't do a lot of sewing at home, but I had a great time. We have strip club the first Sat. of Every month at 10 and 2 and it's always a great time.

I'd love the pattern for the pants. I think they'd sell like hotcakes at the craft fair.
