Pillowcases

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!

By the numbers

5 quilts tied, 1 lobster roll eaten – expect those numbers to climb over the new few days!

As usual, Bev has my tying table all set up and ready with a LARGE roll of batting! My binding buddy Rebecca, didn’t make the sew-in this year and I’m missing her but Brenda and Jackie are going to fill in and bind the quilts that I tie. Brenda took the first day and Jackie is on binding duty tomorrow.

We work long hours but time out was taken for dinner … a lobster roll sitting by the water … it doesn’t get better than this!
