Pillowcases and a Donation Blanket




I made more pillowcases using the Magic Pillowcase Tutorial. Love that tutorial! I'm making several, some for grandchildren, some for gifts and some to donate.

Last week I thought I might piece the backing for my Crayon Box quilt. After cutting forty 10" squares, I decided to buy enough of one fabric to make the backing with only one seam down the middle. I can use the squares to make a throw later this spring.

Since I've never machine quilted a large quilt, I though it would be a good idea to practice on a smaller project, a Winny the Pooh panel I planned to donate to Project Linus. I sandwiched a thick piece of white flannel between some backing Pooh theme fabric and a Pooh panel. I'll post the results later.

Yes, that pillowcase pattern is so very easy, yet you can make such elegant gifts. They are so quick and addictive. We use this pattern in my guild to make for a children's hospital. I'm still 'practicing' my free motion - gotta get over that hurdle and just go for it. Have fun.

When I first got my longarm I used a lot of panels for practice...they make wonderful donation quilts. My Quick Strippie pattern on my website is another great one for practicing machine quilting and they always turn put so cute!
