Judy,

I like your pillow cases. I make these for use as a sack to store quilts that I give away. I make them from leftover fabric so they match.

That's a good idea to make them from the quilt material so they match. Haven't thought of that idea before. Also a good way to use an extra block from the quilt!  Now I need to start sewing again. Have been doing so much sight-seeing on this Alaska trip that I haven't seen much lately.

I don't know why I didn't think of that.  I just gave my daughter a couple quilts for the  auction next week. Maybe I'll get a case made and include it. Thanks Kris

Adele,

I'm sure that your pillow cases are also beautiful.  I adore the owl  you have as your avatar.  Did you make that?  I wish I had a pattern for the owl.

I'm surprised she didn't show it with a French seam. Instead she has raw edges on the side. 

Spud, I didn't see any option for a PDF. There are instructions somewhere on QCA that MargeP posted ages ago.

Here's a site that I thought looked good and has no raw edges:

Thanks Marianne, I collect owls ( used to be my thing when I taught 1st grade).  It actually was a gift item that Starbucks had as a promotion.  The book plus the owl was an A+ for me.  Check on Pinterest for owls and patterns.  Loads to look at even some patterns!

I love making these pillow cases. MargeP posted a pattern ages ago. It's called the Hot Dog construction method

Hi Judy - wish I could take credit for this but as you found out it was Marge (AKA Dimples) that posted it.  I just watched the Missouri Star Quilt tutorial and I like Marge's so much better with no raw seams at all.

They really are fun to make and have to do a few one of these days.  I made some for two great granddaughters a couple years ago and the oldest one actually crawled into it and just had a ball playing in it.  I guess I need to make her another one as I am sure that one is history by now.

I need to go and check to see if I have Marge's method in my favorites for future use.

I realized that when I pulled it up in my Favorites and then forgot to give credit where credit was due. Thanks Marge P.
