patchwork pillowcase

Just a quick WIP post today because it is the last WIP at Freshly Pieced until September and I don't want to miss out.  Today I finished up a patchwork pillowcase.
It's for Danny at Mommy for Reals.  (You should check out her blog because she's funny and crafty and her daughter is adorable.) She needs 40 pillowcases for the young ladies who will be attending Teen Reach Adventure Camp.  I love crafting for a good cause so of course I wanted to help.  I made a disappearing nine patch panel with some rainbow charm squares from one of the swaps I participated in.  I used purple fabric from my stash for the borders and back and quilted it with some randomly spaced diagonal lines and variegated purple thread.  I think it's fun and colorful and hopefully a teenager will like it--I'm a little out of touch with what teens like!  (I know the pillowcase looks a little big. It's for a 20 inch pillow but the only pillow "model" I had was only 18 inches.) Now just one more pillowcase and one drawstring bag to make then I can ship everything off!

  1. Very nice Steph! Whoever gets your pillow cover, and I'm sure it will go for all the other goodies you're making, they will love them!
