I almost didn’t want to share this. I made it for my daughter for Christmas. When she was little she declared herself a “Pigatarian” and refuses to eat pork. She doesn’t know what to do with it, but it makes a comfy cushion for an uncomfortable loveseat I have in my sewing room. The fabric is This Little Pig by Elizabeth’s Studio.
It's fun browsing through fabric stores and finding fabrics that are so special they just have to be used together. That's what I love about White on White for the body of pillowcase, with a cuff that is simply the perfect match. I hope the pictures are good enough for you to see the Dragonflies in the white on white, the Ginkgo white on white, and the Holly in the white on white - each of the sets have perfect cuffs to go with. These make really special gifts for an anniversary or a new home. I use the 'burrito' method for sewing pillowcases with a 27" body, 9" cuff (18" folded in half), and 1" trim (2.5" folded). It makes for a big ~35" pillowcase, but I do this for 2 reasons: a) it's easy to figure out the yardage for 1, 2 or 4 pillowcases and b) they fit standard and queen size pillows. Some may even use them on king size pillows. Posted March 31, 2019
My husband was the ROTC Commander and this is one of his cadet’s. That got married and now they are having they’re first baby. He is a pilot and she is a second grade teacher. I tried to combine both professions. I also sent the dr. Seuss book, oh the places you will go since they are in the military, they will move a lot. This pattern came out of the baby block book vol 5 issue 1 2018.

Inbetween quilt projects, I like to make sets of pillow cases to give as grad student graduation gifts or shower gifts to brides. I especially like using a solid Cotton Lawn for the main body, and beautiful florals for the cuffs. The cotton lawn fabric is so smooth and fine, and lovely to sleep on. I also like adding a flange trim for a touch of elegance. I use Jenny Doan's flange binding tutorial as a guideline for the flange trim.
For about three years I collected fabric license plates from fabric stores from all 50 states. Some of the states are represented by more than one license plate with a total of 68 plates in this quilt. I collected license plates from some states while traveling, some were given to me by friends and some I had sent to me from fabric stores in states I didn't visit. Each fabric license plate has its own cute title from the state it represents.
