To our friends at American Patchwork & Quilting and the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge, it means the number of pillow cases made by quilters and sewers around the world, donated to organizations which serve those in need. It means perhaps, one million children may feel the love and hope in every stitch of that pillow case and carry it with them to brighten a day or lifetime.
As sponsors of the 1 Million Pillowcase challenge, we celebrate that your love of all things sewing has helped this worthy program reach over 500,000. Let’s not stop now! All PeopleQuilt.com offers free patterns for pillowcases. They asked people to vote for their favorite of the free patterns on a special Pinterest board and here is the winning pattern recreated on our blog and many others.
We joined forces with our friends at Coats & Clark to make our version of this adorable pillowcase. For the Pillowcase body and band we used FreeSpirit Beechwood Park by Jenean Morrison.
Adding to the adorable factor is the detail achieved with even more fabric and thread.
