Pillowcase Friday!

We love being part of the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge, put on by American Patchwork & Quilting. Each quarter, APQ shares two new pillowcase designs and then makes samples using fabric from the initiative's sponsors.

The official pillowcase count is 562, 223 as of today's post--over halfway to the 1,000,000 goal--great job APQ and quilters across the world! You can find more out about the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge, including 24-Hour Sew-athon details in September, here. Of course, we'll also share a little eye candy with you here!

Pattern #42 is "Hey Cupcake!" shown here using our Cosmopolitan collection. 
Find the pdf pattern for this pillowcase here.

Pattern #43 is "Pyramid Band" featuring Linda Carlson and Diana Henage's Imagine This collection. Find the pdf pattern for this pillowcase here.
