NEW PILLOWCASES

When in Oregon, my GD and I went to a quilt shop going out of business and as we were looking through the fat quarters, my GD saw this Old Glory panel, so I bought it.  I decided to make it into a pillow case along with two other pillowcases that I made for our king size bed.  The Old Glory pillow goes between the other two.



The other two pillowcases have five sawtooth stars and a piano key border.


I got the idea for the pillowcases somewhere and don't remember where, but I loved them, especially since the sawtooth stars in CW reproduction are my favorite blocks!


The quilt on our bed is big enough to tuck the pillows in, which we had been doing because my old pillowcases didn't match and were in pretty sad shape.  I realized that I needed new pillowcases, so just decided to take the time and make them.  Besides, I already had the stars made!  Now, we can just put the pillows on top if we want to.

That does look great. I have not tried making pillow cases yet, but I do live the quilt block border to coordinate with the quilt!

Great pillowcases. I don't know if this is where you saw them, but I know Grace, at acityquilter blog has made pillowcases with those stars on the end. I love them--hers and yours!

I love that idea to use panels. I'm going to have to keep that in mind for future projects! They look great with the quilt on your bed, too.
