You've heard of the Million Dollar Pillowcase challenge by now right? Well, if you haven't, I will tell you a little bit about the program. American Patchwork & Quilting came up with the idea to combine our love of sewing with the gift of giving. Individuals and quilt shops around the globe are participating. I see my local quilt shop Sisto's is contributing. It's easy. Here's the website: http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/millionpillowcases/index.html for more details. Here you can find free downloadable patterns. Once you have your pillowcase complete, you can donate it to a local charity or find out if your local quilt shop is collecting for the cause. Dont forget to update the pillow case counter!
To watch a really awesome pillow tutorial, check out Fabrics N Things blog: http://fabricsnquilts.blogspot.com/2011/04/mondays-pillowcase-challenge-giveaway.html The video shows you how to make a sausage pillowcase - that's one that is rolled up in such away that you end up with no raw edges! I wish I would have seen this tutorial last August when making other pillowcases. This was the coolest way to make a pillowcase!
