The Pillowcase Express

Welcome to the Inspired by Fabric blog, showcasing our love of fabrics and all things quilting and sewing! Today we're taking part in the American Patchwork & Quilting's One Million Pillowcase Challenge blog hop, which is helping to celebrate surpassing the halfway goal--more than 500,00 pillowcases have been donated to local charities! As a sponsor for this worthwhile endeavor, we're hopping on board and showing some of our favorite 

During the month of July, AP&Q held a contest on Pinterest featuring 20 of their favorite pillowcase designs. We've recreated the winning design in two different fabric collections. 

First up, Nite Owls by Judy Hansen, where cute little owls are along for a spooky nighttime ride: 

Next us is a pillowcase made out of our huge basics collection, Marblehead, by Ro Gregg:

If you like Marblehead, be sure to check out our tutorials from last week's Marblehead Week, and click on the Marblehead Challenge tab to find out how you can win 20 yards of Marblehead fabric!

We'd like to send a special thank you to AP&Q for putting on the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge--what a worthwhile event helping so many! 

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the hop! Don't forget to make some pillowcases to donate!


  1. I have been looking for Marblehead. Is there an online source? I can't even find it in stores. I live in Utah. Thanks.
