Pillowcases

I had hoped to have both of these pillowcases done by the end of today, but I still have a little bit more to finish on the second one. I love the way this looks! For the next set, I'm going to insert a band of pieced blocks near the hem. Between pillowcases and tote bags, which is our project for Friday, I think I may be on a couple of new kicks!

Credit where credit is due:
No pattern was used to make these pillowcases.

They are great, and a lot quicker to make than quilts.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

I like those! I could never figure out the use in making pillow cases for gifts unless they matched either the sheets or the blankets/quilts. Those look nice.

Your pillowcase looks terrific! I love the way it coordinates with the quilt. Really adds that special touch.

GREAT idea!!! Looks really pretty. Gives me an excuse to buy an extra yardage when making a quilt for a co-ordinated look - oops, is that a good thing? LOL!

Cheers!

I love the coordinating pillowcases. I think I'll try that the next time I make a quilt for my own use. It looks GREAT!

I need to make pillowcases to match my quilts. I love that quilt.

I like making and using homemade pillowcases. Yours is beautiful, and looks great with your quilt.

I like those! You did a good job! I try to do that - especially when I make a quilt as a gift - give pillowcases too! Did I mention that I found some more of that print fabric(red/black/white) like I used in "Split Personality"? Yes!
Pillowcases for me!!
My grandkids "expect" pillowcases for Christmas! You should see some of the fabric I have collected just for that purpose - it's usually a really fun print that reflects their interests and personalities. I bought more fabric today - sure glad I'm not participating in that "Stash Report" thingy! I'd loose big time!! LOL

Your pillowcase came out beautifully. It must give you a warm and fuzzy feeling when you walk into your room to see such a nice looking bed.
