Just Cases

Fourteen QOV presentation cases
February 2015
While cleaning and organizing my sewing room, I found some scraps and yardage that I no longer wanted hanging around and taking up room. That pile of fabric was turned into 14 pillowcases. Now, they are laundered, pressed, and ready to become useful.

I have no idea how the purple fabric found its way into my stash because it is one of my least favorite colors.

Update: the purple cases were donated to the local hospice home, and the other cases will be used for QOV presentations.

  3. 14 -wow! And such a perfect way to use up yardage. The patriotic ones would go great with some of the QOV quilt you've worked on.

  4. That's a great idea for using up unwanted fabric. Now what are you going to do with the pillow cases?

  5. It is very pretty purple fabric! I wouldn't mind having some actual pillow cases in that color. I love a colorful bedroom. When we were first married DH would tell friends that my linen choices would keep him awake at night.

  6. I bet there would be a children's charity that would want those purple pillow cases if you didn't want to keep them.

  7. Good grief, you are so industrious! One Christmas I made everyone a pillowcase with a theme of something they like. The pillowcases are a great project because, as you said, they go fast and are useful!

  9. I don't like purple either, I was told once it is an old lady color...maybe that is why? Nice job on the cases:)

  11. I sometimes stop and scratch my head wondering where a rediscovered fabric came from.

  12. Great job on the cases. I don't seem to have any fabric at 26" or so that I'd be willing to give over to pillowcases! My guild makes and donates cases to our local hospitals. We've made over a thousand in the last 4 years. Pretty good for a group of less than 40 women. And, knowing how to make them I sometimes make pillowcases for the grands. Hum, must keep eye open for spring fabrics!
