I have seen them done using ruffling for the accen.  Wide lace or eyelet looks nice for the accent too.  I am thinking about trying them with prairie points for my accent. 

 

Great ideas. So many possibilities.....

Well done.  I love these pillow cases and make them to go with every quilt now.

Patti, I don't make them to go with every quilt but every quilt I give away gets one with a message to wash it with the quilt - that way if the quilt ever needs to be mended the fabrics from the quilt are in the pillow case and have faded and worn the same as the quilt.

I thought I remembered you saying that you did pillowcases for your quilts.  I know that DGD loved the idea of having pillowcases to coordinate with her quilt.

I use the serger, too but I never made them the hot dog style. Can't wait to try it.

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

Over the last couple of weeks, I made 10 pillowcases using this method. I only had written instructions when I started, this tutorial is very good, and helped in an area I just could not figure out. Nicely done.

Excellent job!   Your pictures are much more descriptive than the hand-written ones I have.  I never heard of that technique referred to as 'hot-dog', but it does apply.   Our church quilt group is making these for a local children's center, also as part of American Patchwork & Quilting's 1 million pillowcase give-away.  We're having a evening where parents/kids come and do some sewing on them.  One middle-school age (I think) girl has proudly made 4 in the last couple of weeks and may try to do some on her own at home for Christmas gifts.

The American Sewing Guild has this as an ongoing charity project for Con Kerr Cancer.  I think that's who American Patchwork and Quilting is working with too but not certain.  Our ASG chapter had a sew day in Sept. and we made over 50 in 4 hours.  Most of us had our fabric cut and ready to turn into "hot dogs".  It is a great project for kids since it is simple and calling them "hot dogs" makes it fun.

Thank you soooo much for that tutorial.  I have had a heck of a time figuring out how to do this and you have made it so easy to understand now.  The color pics help too as the contrasts make it easier to understand what you did.  thank you thank you

I love this pillow case, I have made them for gifts and used fabric that represents the season or holiday at hand. My granddaughter loved the one for Halloween and wants one for Christmas...which of course she will get. They are fast and fun. I also use them to match bed linens instead of shams. Thanks Dimples!
