1 Million Pillowcase Challenge

Are you participating in the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge sponsored by American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine?

Here's what we've donated so far.  Pillowcases are so fun and easy to make, and they use up your stash in a hurry!




Naturally, one of my quality control assistants had to make sure they were ready to go.



Thank you, Sundance!

We hope to get a few more made in the next couple of days.  If you've never made a pillowcase before there are a lot of free, simple patterns on the web.  I use a couple of different techniques depending upon whether or not I'm using a directional fabric.

Happy stitching,
Piwacket

Are you doing those through the shop? We're doing it at ours. I have a pillowcase tutorial on my blog if anyone needs it: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dj4zfcb_3f34fjt

The shop is promoting it and we're having a pillowcase making team challenge on SuperBowl Sunday. I did five for shop samples and the others are from my stash. Thanks for the link to your tutorial!

Hmmmm, I keep seeing all of these great pillow cases and hearing how easy they are and how they use stash. I might have to get going making some!
