One Million Pillowcase Challenge

Have you heard about the One Million Pillowcase Challenge from our friends at American Patchwork & Quilting? Last year we participated in this challenge and, with the help of some very talented and generous women in our community, we were able to donate 57 pillowcases to local chairties.

This time, when APQ asked if we would be interested in participating on the Pillowcase Pinterest Challenge, we didn't hesitate before saying yes, yes, yes. After all it's such a great cause!

The winning pillowcase was this darling Train design (the link will take you to a PDF you can download if you'd like to make your own) and we knew exactly what fabric we would use to make ours. The blue colorway of my new line, Just My Type, for Michael Miller Fabrics, is perfect for this design! Check it out!!






















If this Train pillowcase is not your cup of tea, there are 35 other designs in the APQ site that you can download for FREE.

We had such a great time sewing up this sweet pillowcase and knowing that it will go to a great cause! Our pillowcase will go to:
The Child Advocacy Center
200 W. Front St.,  Suite 500 B
 Bloomington, IL  61701 

If you'd like to participate and donate your pillowcase to charity, here is a list of ideas on where to donate.
