1 Million Pillowcase Challenge

Have you heard of the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge sponsored by allpeoplequilt.com?  You can go here to download patterns and find the names of shops in your area that are participating.  These pillowcases are easy to make.  I completed these three last evening using their Basic Pattern.   I again used fabric from my stash (goal for the year).  The chocolate fabric is left over from a chocolate themed apron I made for my friend Sara's retirement gift.   I purchased the striped fabric and when I got home I realized that the apron pattern would not work with directional print.  So it was added to my stash and now it has become a "Calorie Free Chocolate" pillowcase.

Several years ago I made about 5 dozen pillow cases just like these and donated to the local St. Vincent DePaul Homeless Shelter. The workers there were thrilled!
