Stash Reduction

thirty-one pillowcases
August 2017
A couple of years ago Marilyn gave me several yards of calico fabric from her stash. Before my surgery, I cut some of Marilyn's yardage and added some yardage from my own stash to prepare pillowcase kits. The kits were good rehab sewing projects. I worked on ten cases at a time over the course of several days.

The cases are laundered and pressed and ready to be donated. Some will be donated to the local hospice home; the rest, as presentation cases for Quilts of Valor.

Marilyn, thank you for much of the fabric for these cases. Since each case uses a yard of fabric, the fabric stash is now 31 yards lighter.

  1. Surely a noticeable dent has been made in your stash after that! I think pillowcases are such a nice way of adding a little extra cheer to the gift of a QOV or to a hospice room.

  5. You inspire me! I have 5 pillowcase kits and the fabric for about 5 more all sorted out in my sewing room and can't seem to get enough ambition to make them.

  10. Great job. Thanks for reminding me I have at least one, if not more, pillowcases kitted up. I may make a few up to use up more fabric.
