Million Pillowcases Challenge

If you're a quilter, or have any friends who are quilters or work at fabric stores, etc. then you may have heard of American Patchwork & Quilting's Million Pillowcases Challenge. Here are two sets of pillowcases that I had the enjoyment of making this week. The fabric for the maroon set came from a friend's scrap bag, and the floral fabric came from a quilt guild member's destash pile. The accent trim on the floral set came from my end of bolts pile of bias binding. I'm trying to visualize how many pillowcases are being created all over the world right now at this moment!

Lovely! I especially like the flower pattern with the accent stripe. I don't sow (or try not too) but enjoy looking at everyones creations.

I love the pillowcases you created, very nice, and hope to see more from others. Also love the idea that you made these from salvaged goods. Oh soooo green!
