Since I couldn’t find the one panel I know I have somewhere in the sewing room when I was packing for GA … I’m going with “large” print for June’s precut. Stephanie always allows us lots of options for the precut challenge and you can even chose to skip a month or substitute another precut but in this case … I had two fabrics set aside to make a pillowcase for Rae and Bree. I had to review the instructions on my website since it’s been so long since I’ve made any pillowcases but both are finished!

If you’re playing along – here is Stephanie’s exact wording for June:

Our June Precut Target is Panels. 

If you don’t have any panels (or leftover part panels), here are few other options –

Perhaps you have some big prints that have been hard to use, maybe that rogue FQ out of a bundle. 

Pillow panels? Cheater prints? Wide border stripe prints? Obvious directional prints?

Or, you could sub in any orphan blocks you have and treat those like a printed pillow panel.

I think since the pillowcases took so little time, I’m going to pull one of my Quick Strippie kits and piece one of those too!

  1. Well, you made quick work of that substitution, Mary!! Nicely done. I think the girls will be pleased!

  2. Very cute pillowcases. I cut kits today for 3 pillowcases and 2 Strippee quilts. Made me feel like I actually accomplished something today.

  3. I really like those pillowcases. I imagine the girls will love them. I have just finished my 4th quilt on my long arm since yesterday afternoon. All 4 were about 40” wide and anywhere from 40” wide to 50” long, all will be given away for charity. I loaded another one for tomorrow and have another waiting. I’m determined to get these done, I won’t even tell you how many are waiting 😩.

  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! About 15 years ago, I used to make these…but somehow lost the pattern! I searched the internet for the pattern, but could never find it. I’m so happy you posted this 😍

  5. Very cute pillow cases! I’m sure the girls will love getting those from Gramma ❤

  6. Those are so cute!! I have never made a pillowcase but just might do that for my grandkids for Christmas.
