Welcome to the One Million Pillowcase Challenge Blog Hop!!
This is one of the favorite blog hops I’ve ever been in. As soon as we were asked to participate I knew this would be fun because one of my favorite charities came to mind …
I was a McDonald’s worker throughout high school and they taught me many of the people and business skills I have today. I’ve been a fan of Ronald McDonald charities for years!
I’ve decided to make and donate 4 different pillowcases. So lets get this party started! I’ve pulled some of my favorite LOL fabrics from my stash …
And printed some of my favorite patterns from the All People Quilt website.
There are 43 different free patterns to choose from and it was difficult to narrow it down. The only one I wasn’t tempted to make was the ruffled cuff. Sorry you ruffle lovers but this girl doesn’t have the ruffle making gene! I love them just don’t like to make them:(.
Here are my finalists. Number One … I chose pattern #15 for these fabrics because I loved the simple piping and wanted to do something blue.
Number Two … I chose the “Roll it Up!” pattern and these fabrics because it’s the simplest and I’m a big fan of the “tube method” … and turquoise fabrics.
Number Three … Piano Key blocks are some of my favorites to make so pattern #16 was a have to make in pink.
Number Four … Pattern # 39 was chosen because I have a beautiful box of Bella Solids and I wanted to use a bit of them. I also love purple.
Ready, set, sew!
Earlier in the week I delivered my 4 pillowcase to our local Ronald McDonald House!
It was a great feeling to know that someone might find a bit of comfort …
And sleep a little easier tonight on one of my pillowcases.
