Hello my friends!!!
Today I am here to tell you about the One Million Pillow Case Challenge!! I am sure you have heard of it before and if you haven't, let me tell you a bit about it!
All People Quilt is heading up this challenge for all of us to make One Million Pillowcases and donate them to charities that need them! We all love pretty things, right? So lets share our creativity and our pretty things with those that need them more than we do!
Please head on over to All People Quilts post about this challenge! Not sure how to make a pillow case?? They have that covered too! They have FREE Patterns you can use as a guide or to follow!
I hope you will join us all in reaching this goal! It is so important to give back and to bring cheer into someones life!
I used the basic pillowcase pattern and adjusted it a bit so I could use my Sizzix Tumbler die for the border! I also used the delicious Cotton and Steel fabric from Melody Miller plus a few basics. The pattern called for a strip 10" x 41" and my tumbler die measured in at 5" before piecing. So to make it 10" I cut a piece of matching solid fabric 6" x 41" and sewed the pieces together. Cutting it at 6" allowed for a bit of trim to peek through. I love the effect!I also highly encourage you to go check out these other bloggers that are participating in the blog hop to see what they created!! Inspiration is invaluable and this group of quilters have some amazing talent!!!
