And pillowcases, too

I am working on a special project for summer…I have some pillowcases to make for some folks.  And for now I’ll leave it at that.  But I also decided to make some pillowcases for a couple of cute kids…


The Blue One’s – stars glow in the dark.
The Pink One’s – because she starts every story she ‘reads’ with Once Upon a Time


Here they are in action for movie night last weekend.

2 down, 6 to go.  In addition to ones I’m making for a ‘special project’, I’m also making 2 to match my Project Linus donation quilt that will go with the quilt to a child in need.  I was hoping to do these all at the quilt retreat I was at in February, but I pinned & sewed some of them wrong so I’m in ‘do over’ mode right now.  Or, I will be once I actually touch them again!  (Other more fun projects jumped ahead of fixing and re-doing these!)

Linking up to Sew, Love, Live , Crazy Mom Quilts , and Confessions of a Fabric Addict today!


About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    That’s funny – I thought it was only my daughter who starts every story with “Once Upon a Time”, even when we read an Eyewitness book on bugs – very cute though! Great that you are making projects for charity and kids in need. I really want to do that sometime soon – do you have a particularly favorite charity that involves giving quilts or other sewn projects to those in need? Great Finish!

    Beautiful job on the pillow cases. I really need to try and make some to go with some of the quilts I finish.
