Pillowcase Challenge

American Patchwork & Quilting 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge - I Donated! Click here to learn more.The two local quilt shops that I visit most often are both collection points for the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. Mom and I have had a blast doing these (ok, only three of them are mine—but Mom’s retired!). There are so many adorable children’s fabrics to choose from. When I saw the Beatrix Potter print I knew that one had to go into the pile. I could not walk away from Benjamin Bunny.

One of the shops had assorted pillowcase kits made up and discounted for the cause. Their kits included the sausage (also known as the hotdog) pattern with the accent strip. I had seen the pattern before but avoided it thinking it was too convoluted. Not so! And it didn’t take much longer to make than the standard cases.

Pillowcase FanThe kit pillowcase is the one on top. Anyone recognize the Jetsons? Kudos if you can remember the names of all the characters.

Pillowcase CollagAnother view to show off the contrasting bands. Erica’s offers a pattern similar to the one I used from the kit. A google search will turn up lots more.

Make a pillowcase or two for the cause. They’re fun and easy to do and it’ll make you feel good, too.

Happy sewing!
